Yellow and White Tablescape

My theme today is yellow and white or better put, lemon yellow.  In honor of this sunny yellow table I kept Mr. Sunshine for a while longer to watch over everything.  I used the French bar stools I painted a while back.  Thankfully they sold this week to a couple looking for luau decorations.  Go figure!

I used some of my white china, which is not ironstone, but I love it just the same.  The goblets were from my mother's wedding crystal and the white flowers in the bouquet are from my garden.  I had to buy the yellow ones because my color scheme is basically white.  I think this is just the cheeriest of complementary colors.
 I've had the cute yellow teapot napkin rings for years.
 Do you love the color of macaroons as much as I do?  How do they get them to be such pretty colors?  I haven't seen a macaroon yet that wasn't beautiful. 

Just remember, if life gives you lemons, make lemonade.  Nice of you to drop by.  Please visit again soon.

This truly IS a sunny and bright table. Very cheerful! I love the mum/alstroemeria/daisy/agapanthus bouquet mix, too. Your linen is really, really cool!!!! Glad you were able to sell the French stools. They were super cute. I don't know how they lasted more than a minute! Have a wonderful weekend filled with sunshine and macaroons! :-)
