One of the favorite parts of summer for many people is watermelon. There is just something about biting into a slice of watermelon that brings a flood of summertime memories. Here is my homage to those watermelon days of summer.
When I saw these Vera dishtowels at Marshalls this year, I knew they would work into the watermelon tablescape I was planning. Since they had only three I knew they couldn’t serve as placemats or napkins. They did fit just perfectly on my table as a runner.
I pulled out the watermelon mugs I found last year new in the box at a thrift shop. These could easily be used to serve a cold soup, perhaps gazpacho.
I added the green Indiana Glass Whitehall goblets from my collection; they will be perfect for serving some sweet tea. Let’s add some mint for additional summer flavor.
The watermelon napkin rings were a yard sale or thrift find. I layered napkins to represent the colors of watermelon slices.
I used flatware I purchased at the Fortessa outlet. I liked the whimsical look the circular design added to the table.
I layered my white Gibson dinner plate on top of rattan chargers. Next I placed the Mesa lime green plate with white polka dots. These Mesa dishes I originally purchased for my daughter and one day she can have them. Probably. Maybe. Just not yet. 😉
Topping off the dish stack is a watermelon slice plate. I think it really completes the setting. Now, who’s ready for some watermelon?
