The Star of the Yellow Bistro

The sun will be going down soon.  I'd like to slip out back on the deck and relax at my new yellow bistro set.

Let's dress the table.  Aren't those placemats darling?

The sun's fading.  Hey, who's that peeking from behind the tumbler?

There she is again.

Do you see her?

There * she * is.

Dishes:  Hey, hey over here.  Check out these yellow and green petals.  After all, this is about the dishes, even if we are plastic.

Time to light the candles.

She sure is a ham.  Spicy too, that color is brilliant.

Dishes:  Can't we get a portrait alone?!

A bird's eye view...

Do you see her from the corner of your eye, too?

Let's fly o'er top again.

She's hot!

Dishes:  Yuhoo, over here.  Remember me?

Dishes:  Hey, this was supposed to be my spotlight.

All aglow.

Circling around again.

Star:  Wow, finally alone time...

Pilot:  Wow, I thought they'd never leave.  I've been checking you out all night.

Star:  Kiss me goodnight.

What a cute post! I love the color scheme you used with that pretty tablecloth. A very inviting table! I have a similar bird candle in green, so now you have me thinking about how to use it in a tablescape!

Aha, you are a fan of Home Goods too! I told my husband, I am not addicted to anything, I don't collect anything, and you are lucky that the closest thing I have to an addiction is TJ Maxx/Home Goods. I think it is the funnest treasure hunting store there is. Such beautiful colors. Love that bistro and those place mats.
