Sunflower Tea Table

I've been traveling the past couple months and haven't put together a tablescape in some time.    I love yellow and was inspired by our recent trip to Napa and Sonoma with the warm colors of the sun to create a fun table.  Sunflowers and lavender were in bloom and we enjoyed the beautiful fall colors of the grapevines.  

 Sunflowers just make me smile!

I purchased these placemats and napkins earlier in the year in a wonderful shop in Carmel.  I love the black and white floral pattern that reverses to black gingham.   I have used these for my Valentine's table paired with red tablecloth and napkins.  

 I thought they would look great 
with yellow too.  

My favorite sunflower plates are
 from Pier One.  I use them often.
I started with  a simple white basket-weaved bordered dinner plate.  

 The Debbie Mumm large coffee/teapot was given to my by a sweet friend.  She knows I love sunflowers and found it at a garage sale.

The napkin rings were purchased in Solvang, California and when I saw them I knew they would compliment my dishes perfectly. 

The yellow tablecloth and napkins are from a thrift store in Pacific Grove.   They were brand new and the thrift store proceeds go to help the local animal shelter.    So it was a win-win!

The little 'Fleur' vase  was purchased in a great antique shop in Fredericksburg, Texas.  I filled it with fresh sunflowers for my little breakfast table.  

We are enjoying the last warm weekend here in Oklahoma City.  A front is moving through and will bring storms and rain.  Meanwhile the sun is shining in my kitchen!
