Watermelon Tablescape

Homage to watermelon . . . one of the joys of summer!

I'm joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for the fabulous weekly tablescape blog party.  Please stop by and visit.  Be amazed at the talent of these bloggers.

I am a watermelon fan too! We used to have seed spitting contests with my dad when we were little although my mom disapproved of that activity! I always look for the watermelons with seeds now and I think it's juicier. Your table is so pretty and cooooool! Those cupcake holders are cute too. Linda

Maria, these photos are so mouth-wateringly beautiful! They're reminding me that I have not yet had watermelon this year, which is a true travesty. Sadly, I'm not likely to eat it outside because 1) our outdoor area looks to junky; and 2) the mosquitoes would most likely capture me and hold me hostage, demanding not payment of my camera, but the blood of all my loved ones. (This would include you, and I'd NEVER sacrifice you for mere watermelon, so I'm opting to enjoy this delicacy indoors!)

What a gorgeous table -- and a stunning setting. I love your view! But the watermelon-themed table is just so perfect for summer -- love the pink and green together, and your green stemware is so pretty with it!

I really love the quote! That's pretty great. Lovely, soothing table.

Love the napkins. I create a watermelon themed table a few weeks ago also.

Love the colors, the homage to watermelon, the watermelon, the setting, everything. This is so very Summer.

Thank you for your sweet comments on my tablescape. I just had to pop over and check yours out. We were certainly on the same wavelength, weren't we? I really like your napkins and how you have them placed across the plate with the silverware on top.

Those sweet little cupcakes are adorable! The watermelon slices add a nice touch and a freshness to the setting. Really beautiful!

Your tables are always so amazing!! Your watermelon tablescape is SO inviting, especially to a "watermelon lover" like me! You might be interested to know that I purchased an entire set of watermelon dishes from my sister's estate sale a few years ago, but even with those, I don't think my table could ever look as lovely as yours!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I had to find your watermelon table and I love it! Love the napkins (which are like my "runner") and the little watermelon toppers on the cupcakes are great!
