candles in a jar

practical and pretty, these white candles in mason jars filled with sand are just the thing for a picnic supper tablesetting...they weigh down the tablecloth, the candles are protected from any breezes, and they bring a chic, simple style to the table from Donna Hay magazine

watermelon salad

on these steamy days of summer, my new favorite lunch from the farmstand is watermelon salad with chunks of feta, fresh mint, toasted pine nuts drizzled with lemon juice and olive oil. With a chilled glass of rose' it's easy and refreshing...also perfect for a first course for dinner!

with a blue sky and sea this color, it sets the scene for a simple tablesetting on a weathered wood table, cream dinnerware, classic glassware and hurricanes, and pretty pale blue napkins...
