Not that I'm old enough to remember Peter, Paul and Mary but my husband (who is old enough!) kept singing that song when we bought our lemon tree last year. I love lemons. The look, the feel, the taste, the smell, pretty much all the senses get in on it. I really swung the pendulum from last week on this table. Different room, four place settings instead of six and dramatic colors. And LOTS of lemons!
I started with placemats and matching napkins from Tuesday Morning (they are on clearance there now).
I told you there was some color! The black background really makes the green and yellow pop.
My dish stack isn't exactly fine china. The dinner plate is from Dollar Tree, salad plate from Ross and the black bowl is from Walmart. No expense was spared in this tablescape!
The glass fruit dish and the lemon sticks are both from Ross. I thought it was just too easy to put a lemon in the dishes so I went with candy.
I layered the napkin with a bright green one (you can't see it here) and the lemon napkin ring is from Bed, Bath and Beyond (clearance of course).
I used my clear acrylic flatware (it matches everything!) and if you're a Dollar Tree regular, you must recognize this glass!
I usually like to say how I don't go overboard with a theme but in this case, find me guilty and throw the book at me!
Final touch to the placesetting is a lemon candle (and the lemons keep on coming) sitting on a leaf plate.
I took my own advice from a few weeks back and used a tray under my centerpiece. The tray is the smaller of two I bought at the Villeroy and Boch Outlet. One of those impulse purchases that you don't know how you could live without.
I found this candleholder on clearance at Ross. It had a few chips in it that I fixed with a sharpie.
The topiary is from Marshall's and the pitcher is from Ross. If finding the lemons on this table were a drinking game we would all be in trouble!
This is our little lemon tree and yes it does resemble Charlie Brown's Christmas Tree after he puts an ornament on it! We are expecting a bumper crop this year!
Thanks for stopping by and letting me indulge in my lemons, lemons and more lemons tablescape. Here's a few more shots just in case you didn't get enough! Hey, that reminds me of what this is missing, a shot of Lemon cello!
Please be sure to stop by my sister's blog, Creating Wonderful Spaces. I promise there will be no lemons in sight next week!
