Well, it is that time of the year when every farmer is frantically harvesting all of their blood, sweat and tears. So, I thought it only fitting to dedicate a tablescape to all those hard workers who keep our homes filled with fresh, healthy and delicious produce!
Everyone who has waited anxiously for the gorgeous juicy field ripen tomatoes are taking advantage of this time of the year! We hold these yummy sweet memories with us when we are at the grocery store in mid February and trying to find a semi-decent tomato.
The summers bounty should be represented in light summery colors. It isn’t Fall yet and we aren’t talking about a Fall harvest. So, I searched through my stash of linens and dishes to see what I could come up with.
I have to confess, about half of the things I used on this table were used because I am ready to donate them. So, it’s pretty mix and match today.
I have enjoyed these veggie plates. The set is made up of four different vegetable designs. And they were made in Italy. I bought them at a flea market a couple of years ago.
The “Stars” of the table are the beautiful fresh tomatoes!
Of course a little freshly snipped basil is a perfect companion to tomatoes.
This is a BLT pie. My mom found the recipe and baked one while we were at the cabin. We all LOVED it! She made this second one for Troy since he wasn’t at the cabin and didn’t get to try it. Yes, my hubby is spoiled!! Here is the post with the recipe! You will loved it and it is pretty easy!
Some fun vintage glasses.
Okay, grab a seat and let’s have some pie!
