Daylily Day!

I've been in the mood to set a really bright sunshiny table ... and wanted something similar in a wreath for my front door!  So ... since I still have daylilies growing ... which is a little unusual in Southern Illinois ... I decided they should be the theme.  I love the combination of pink and orange ... In fact, pink might  be my new white!  I think it goes with everything!

I've fallen in love with the geo mesh product that everybody is using for wreaths, and lately I've been catching it on sale.  I had a few rolls of this two-tone orange/yellow mesh, so I was all set to begin creating!

First step was to design the wreath.  That was simple enough, and I had a bush of silk daylilies ... so all done!

Then I created another smaller version to use as a centerpiece.  I had flameless candles that matched perfectly ... and enough silk flowers to add to it and add to the center in a small vase.

It sure didn't take much time to set the table on the front deck!  

Pink dinner plates with pink flatware.  Orange Viking Georgian stemmed glassware shines in the sunlight!

This napkin ring is like a cluster of gem stones!  I found a bunch of them at 
Pier 1 ... really on sale ... at the end of last summer!

I added a peach luster Anchor Hocking shell dish to 
use for a fresh vegetable salad.

Dinner on the sunshine daylily table was easy!  I made a salad of strips of cucumber, red bell pepper and chunks of celery.  I added my favorite vinaigrette with lots of feta cheese.  So good ... and so easy!   I keep ice cube portions of fruit juices that I have left over when I make jelly.  I still had some of my tart cherry juice from last summer ... so I added a cube to my favorite bottled BBQ sauce.  It enhances the flavor considerably.  
I grilled thin pork chops and added a handful of frozen cherries to the finished plate.  It takes them about a minute to thaw.  

Hope you enjoyed my Daylily Day with a sunshine tablescape, front door wreath and easy bbq meal!  I'll be sharing with some of the following parties, so make sure you click through to see the other posts.  First ... be sure to visit my home page to see my other recent posts!  Thanks for visiting!
