Sunflowers, Watermelons, and a Roo (Rooster)

Put them all together and ‘voilà you have a summertime picnic!’

Did you notice my new thrift store watermelon basket?  I picked up the vintage sunflower milk bottle at D.I. last year.  I love it!

My wooden watermelon that I painted years ago has just about seen it’s day.  I’ve used it outside a lot.  You know me, I’ll hang on to it until it falls apart.

Sunflower plates I have had for years.  I bought them at Broadbents.

I bought the sunflower cloche at T.J. Maxx this Spring.

The ant bowls came from Hobby Lobby, the plates from Pirate-O’s, and the S&P shakers from Broadbents.

Had to have them, because no summertime picnic would be complete without the ants!

Threw in the Roo for a pop of turquoise.  Besides, I just bought him at the grand opening of our new Home Goods store.  Couldn’t wait to put him out.

He makes this picnic something to crow about, don’t you agree?

I actually think that watermelon is just hitting its stride! A little wear and tear just makes it more dear. :) A lovely tabletop, thanks for sharing!

Love your rooster and all your fun displays. By the way, I have acute aqua fiesta pitcher I'm saving just for you. It would look so cute on your table with daises.

I'm loving all the sunflowers! I'm heading across the border this weekend (from way up north here in Canuckistan), and I've seen both the T.J. Maxx and Hobby Lobby...now I'll definitely have to check them out.
Enjoy the rest of summer :)
