When I first considered Becky's dishes I was worried about finding or making cloths that would evoke summer, but surprisingly quickly I found two that I thought would work. Since they were so different I got them both and did two summer tables. This second one is based on a printed cotton kantha scarf from India. Its gray background and black lines linked it to the dishes, while the splashes of orange, blue, and green in the design lifted it into summer. I immediately thought of orange lilies and since Tim grows gorgeous lilies they would be appropriate, although by the time I got around to photographing the table the season for lilies had passed and I had to rely on the grocery store. I combined them with madrona leaves, whose size, substance and shine make me think of the tropics, in a blue glass vase that went with the blue wine glasses. Black napkins looked very chic with the runner, but when I got the whole table pulled together the combination of black and orange looked too Halloween-y and at the last minute I switched to green. To liven them up I threaded bright ribbons through a ring sewed to the napkin rings, trying to make the plates more light-hearted. I don't think it really works in this case, but I do like the fact that the ribbons could be changed for other color schemes in the future.
