Lemon Love Tablescape


Welcome to Red Couch Recipes to Lemon Week.

Grab yourself a glass of Lemon Water.

I understand some you have been having extremely warm weather; here in Utah, we have had rain and cool weather.  In fact it rained while I was setting up this table.

I also have yellow bubble glasses on the table tonight.  Here's a view through the lemon yellow glass.


A napkin view....


A view of the stack...and a peak, albeit not very good, of my new silverware from World Market.  I was thrilled to go to one when we were in Idaho last week.  When I was first out of college I used to frequent a Cost Plus to furnish my cupboards -- one dish a week!  I love World Market!


A picture of the placesetting...I bought the lemon/pear salad plates for my birthday last year.  I received the yellow dinner plates for my birthday this year.


A view of the whole table.


I hope you enjoyed my Lemon Love Tablescapes and hope you will drop by for more posts during lemon week.

Yellow is just so fresh and bright, extra pretty on your summer table Joni. That cupcake and those cookie are making me pucker too!

You say lemon and I come running! Beautiful table! I really love the bubble glasses! I have been looking for some with no luck. Rats!

I'm heading to that pancake post. I somehow missed that one.

I really do love your lemon love tablescape! I could leave it set up on my kitchen table, and it would look perfect there. It's so bright and sunny and HAPPY.

Debbie said...

Oh good grief. I thought by the picture that those were pancakes. LOL! They are cookies. I'm still heading there. I'm just laughing at myself more as I do.

Hi Joni, I love your salad plates. I really like your lemon tumblers too and a nice cold glass of water with lemon sounds very refreshing!
Blessings, Beth

Joni, my mouth puckered just looking at this lovely table setting. So happy and cheerful. Love the salad plates. They are so very charming. Love your new flatware too - is it the beige? Got my kitchen dishes a few at a time with various promos and coupons from my love - world market - this year! Love those lemon glasses too.. Many blessings, marlis

What a wonderful concept! An entire week dedicated to lemon posts! I may have to borrow your idea at some point. Your table is (dare I say it?) very lemony! LOL! Love those yellow goblets. I've printed out the recipe for the Lemon Thyme cookies. They sound delicious! I['ll be checking back this week for more lemon love.

Early in our marriage, we lived in Helena, Montana. Occassionally we were privileged to go to San Francisco, and we were thrilled to discover Cost Plus Imports. We would make a visit there every time that we went to SF, and it was such a luxury to add to our dishes and other accessories. Thank you for sharing your darling design. Cherry Kay

Ooooh, LOVE your table, and those lemony cupcakes sure are looking good to me!!.. Have a great day, keep cool, and whatever you're doing, enjoy! ~tina

Rain? Temperatures nowhere near triple digits? I'm booking a flight to Utah NOW!!! This Midwestern weather has been grueling! The humidity is insufferable, and even with constant watering the grass is looking a little suspect. NO way to entertain outdoors in this! :-( Beautiful table with absolutely gorgeous lemon-colored glassware! Lemons are so cooling to the palate AND the eye this time of year. Have a wonderful weekend, and please send that rain to Lee's Summit, MO. We could use a day or two of it! :-)

Bonnie said...

So refreshing and inviting. I am craving your lemon cookies and I have fresh thyme growing. Great tablescape. I like World Market too!

Mid-Atlantic Martha said...

So pretty -- makes me want a large glass of lemonade. Love the pretty lemons on your table. I've never been to world market.

Monica said...

Great table. I have a lemon themed table in the works also. Love the bubble glasses.

Sue said...

So bright and cheery! I'd love to sit at your table, Joni:)

Cricket said...

Joni,
Beautiful as always. For some reason I din't think you lived in Utah...don't know why. If you are ever in the West JOrdan area stop in Anastasias's Attic at Gardner Village and see me.

Love it! Yellow is such a cheerful color.

Your lemony yellow table is very refreshing. The yellow bubble glasses are great as are those fabulous chargers. It's probably a good thing that our World Market is not that close or I could be in some serious trouble. :)

Jacqueline said...

Just a gorgeous table Joni. The yellow looks so pretty with the white and thoae fun fruit plAtes are great for Lemon Week.
