Red Polka Dots

It was Hubbys birthday so we are celebrating outside-although it's about 100 degrees. Thought I'd do a cheerful red polka dot theme.
I just layered red dots over more red dots.
The placemats are form Big Lots-kind of like oil cloth.
White dinner plates are my everyday plates.
Red polka dot plates from Home Goods.
Red flatware from Target bought a few years ago.
Napkins and napkin rings from thrify store.
The ME birdhouse was also bought at thrift store.
Giant red mug with flowers from Hobby Lobby.
I'm joining Sue for Rednesday and Between Naps on the Porch today. Please go over and check out more reds and some great tables. Happy 100 Tablescape Anniversary!

Hopefully the german chocolate cake won't melt.
Happy Birthday Hubby!

Hope you all have a great day!

  8. Hi Leslie,
    Mmmm, German Chocolate Cake - that's my husband's favorite. I love your red flatware and polkadots. The daisies look so fresh and pretty (even it if was 100 degrees!) Hope it's cooled off for ya.

  9. Hi Leslie!
    Happy Belated Birthday to your husband, hope the chocolate cake didn't melt!
    Your table decor is darling. I love your polka dot plates, so precious and of course your ME birdhouse is adorable. Wish I could sit out there under your red umbrella with some bday cake. :)
    We're having the strangest weather in WLA - it was cold for a couple of weeks, then HOT and now it was cold again today. We went to the Santa Monica Farmers Market and I had to wear two sweaters (well one light summer one over my tank top and a warmer, longer one over it) CRAZY! I'm so grateful that we haven't had prolonged heat like the rest of the country. Hope you're able to retreat to some air conditioning.
    Happy Rednesday,

  10. Nice tablescapes! Thanks for the visit today. I'll be back.

    By the way, I noticed in your profile you said you have a Yorkie. I got one a few months ago and his name is Leo... because his personality is like a lion. (wild and tries to chew everything in sight, including people) Tell Max that Leo said "hi"! :D
