Ruffled Tulips

Today I was going to do another neutral tablescape and then I stopped at Costco and found these incredible ruffled tulips in red and yellow.  Well, I just had to bring them home.

Just about everything on this table I have shared with you before.  I am just mixing it up for this vignette.  The red charger plates came from Tuesday Morning years ago as did the yellow plates and the red goblets.  The red items are seasonal and you can find them around Christmastime.  The lemonade decanter is kept in our kitchen nook all year long more for decorative purposes than functional.  The red flatware is also from Tuesday Morning.  It's my daughter's, but she lets me use it from time to time.
 The ruffled tablecloth was a splurge from Julie O'Keefe's Home and Garden in La Canada, California.  Great for spring and summer dining.  I made the napkin rings out of silk geraniums and curtain loops covered in floral tape.
 It's bright and cheery and ready for summer.
 Vintage hemstitched napkins are always a classic.
 I love the strong shades of red against the sunny yellows on the table.  A very striking color combination, don't you think?
 A great layered look.
 Thanks for stopping by.  I love your visits.

I'm pretty sure you have never shared those dipped strawberries with me before. I would remember drooling.

What a beautiful setting. And this you just pulled together?! Amazing!
The red and yellow is just perfect. Isn't nature the best inspiration? Thanks for sharing this spot of beauty with us.
Big hugs,

The tulips are lovely, but the entire tablescape is gorgeous! I am a bit jealous of your tablecloth. I'm certain it's one I wanted so badly at a store near my home. It was quite pricey and I just couldn't bring myself to purchase it. It was the last one and I'm certain that it sold. I have regretted it ever since. Visiting from House in the Roses. Now following you. I have a linky party, Share Your Cup Thursday. I would love if you would share this later this week.
Hugs,
Jann

So gorgeous, Maggie! Those tulips are stunning -- and the pretty table you've set to show them off does them justice! Love the ruffled tablecloth as a base for the bright red and yellow color scheme.

I was just admiring some fringed tulips in one of my Paula Pryke floral books this morning! These are so pretty!!! The variegated kind are always the prettiest! I love how you utilized the colors to create this really fresh and vibrant table!!! SO pretty! Great lemonade dispenser, too!!!
