A HUGE THANKS to sweet Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for hosting the 49th Tablescape Thursday, please click the logo to see the other participants for this week.
I decided to go with a very simple East-West this time. I was going to set up one of the outdoor tables, but the temperatures have been averaging 105 degrees afternoons ~
too HOT for me, so I set it up in the breakfast nook instead. :)
The little 6-inch bamboo steamers are stackable, and can also be used for serving.
Inexpensive bamboo themed flatware.
I've collected these porcelain soup spoons for quite some time in different patterns and colors; they can also be used for small amounts of condiments, seasoned dipping salts and one-bite amuse bouches (~ little appetizer bites.)
I've had these Foo Dogs for over 30 years, I remember clearly the day I bought them; it was a girl's day out with my dear mother for lunch and shopping. I surely cherish those memories of time spent with my mother.
The fragrant lilies are in full bloom right now ~ so I plucked one for the table.
The little bottles hold soy sauce and seasoned rice vinegar.
The tablecloth and napkins are by April Cornell; the mat beneath the Foo Dogs is actually a sushi rolling mat.
Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day. :)
