Granddaughter #1 wanted HER turn with setting the table after her twin sister set the Beachside table last week.
She went to the garage where I have everything stored and spied these glasses. As soon as she saw them, she said, "I want a watermelon table!" So we started here.
Then to find the perfect tablecloth. This is a piece of material I had purchased from Hobby Lobby a few years ago. It's an ideal match for the base of the glasses.
Then she chose the rattan chargers because she wanted it to look like a summer picnic. Then back to the Fiestaware which always has the perfect colors for any table setting.
Shamrock green to mimic the rind, white for the white of the watermelon rind, and scarlet for the red meat of the fruit.
She chose silver napkin rings and black cloth napkins. The unique roll of the napkin is her own design.
I love how it all coordinates so well! Did I mention she's 7??
The finishing touch is an extra black napkin in the middle of the table (her idea) and topped with two pesky ants(!) and Fiestaware salt and pepper shakers.
I bet you're hungry for watermelon now!
