White Petunias and A Surprise Tablescape

The white petunias are gorgeous blooming in the wire basket on the deck. 

They are so showy with the green grass in the background.

My tablescape is a special one for my daughter. She celebrated her birthday over the weekend and I decided to set a special table just for her and her husband to celebrate her special day.

Orange and yellow are two of her favorite colors and work well with the white petunias.

Orange woven placemats separate the yellow Fiesta plates and the yellow tablecloth. The salad plate is a bright yellow patterned plate with a blue rim. 

The tablecloth is from TJ Maxx and the orange napkins and napkin rings are Pier One. The flatware is Laurie Gates - Ivory by Hampton.

A bottle of her favorite wine is added to the table.
