UPDATE: We're back from a wonderful trip and I'll be posting soon. Between jetlag, an abundance of laundry, returning to work, attending VBS and the heat wave....I've not created a new tablescape. Since I didn't get the chance to link this one before our trip I will do that now. Can't wait to share some pictures and new table linens from our holiday -- see ya!
You all know how much I love Thursday, when we all get to visit Susan and join the tablescape party. This week however, I won't be visiting or linking. We'll be, as our English friends say, "Across the pond". (well actually waaaaaay across the pond - in Greece!) So today, we're having lunch with some of our froggy pond friends.
Welcome to the pond!
Here's a lilly pad set just for you! Let's see what's set on the table today.
Goblets found at Goodwill back in the fall. They're holding pretty pink and green napkins from Tuesday Morning. I have a two napkin rule - paper for the mouth, cloth for the lap.
I found these froggy salt and pepper shakers at an antique store named "Through The Garden Gate". It seems fitting to find frogs in the garden - don't you think so?
Here's another frog from Ben Franklin Craft store.
I folded my pink cloth napkins into "flowers" for the lilly pads. They've been put into my crystal votive holders and set on each plate. The plates came from Kroger this spring -- I thought they sort of looked like lilly pads.
Here's a frog hanging around the centerpiece.
Another flower fold -- no two came out exactly alike.
Another frog from Ben Franklin.
The centerpiece is set in a shallow footed crystal compote.
I found this at Goodwill and I think it's supposed to be a toothbrush holder -- but it makes a perfect "flower frog" today.

Time to light the candles.
The flatware "Treble Clef" is perfect for this whimsical table setting.

Just hanging on...
...for dear life!
Poor little fella!
I won't make the link up for the party this week at Susan's "Between Naps on the Porch" but be sure to hop on over to her porch and see what everybody's set on their table this week. You'll be glad you did.
See ya when we get back!
