“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change”
It’s time to fire up the grill and find your spot for the annual fireworks show…I can hardly believe that July 4 is next week! It seems like we just welcomed summer with Memorial Day! The red, white, and blue are flying high everywhere you look…and to me, they’re not only the colors of our great nation, but the colors of summer!
I don’t think I will be hosting a July 4 get-together this year, but I still wanted to set a table, so on Saturday evening when the scorching heat finally simmered down a little, I took to the patio. As I started putting everything in place, I noticed it was getting dark and looking like rain. Now, if you’re a blogger, you know that on a normal day, rain would not be welcome during an outdoor tablescape shoot. But I would have gladly packed up and gone back inside if it meant relief from the 90-100 degree weather we have been having lately! But to my dismay, the rain held off! Pull up a seat and grab a glass of raspberry tea and join me at our summer table full of stars and stripes!
The blue hydrangeas were the perfect centerpiece. Note the two white blooms, they are my first Limelight blooms this season …but in the next few days there will be loads of beautiful blooms appearing!
