SCAD, your awesome!

Hello All!!
As an artist I love to find unique items....especially when they are created by other artists. SCAD, I discovered, has a website that sells their students' work, and for a reasonable price (for the most part). I absolutely love the acrylic dinnerware collections! They are cheery and fun and made by aspiring artists. Around $10 a dinner plate and $8 for bowls, these little gems are a steal! You can find them here.
I say mix and match...throw in sweet little glasses filled with flowers and herbs....a few fancy stemwares.....sprinkled with embroidered napkins....tasty treats......insert laughing friends..and you've got a perfect summer party.

Here are a few beautiful summer tablescapes found on flickr; hopefully you can find some inspiration from these designs. Its always good to mix (within reason), patterns, textures, and colors. I love to see whimsical dainty crystal glasses matched with bold summer dinnerware or bowls.
While I was searching through flickr I discovered a few amazing new blogs (well new to me), where these images were found. NYCLQ was founded by Lynda Quintero-Davids, she has a great eye for staging and design. Also I stumbled upon Olive Juice Photography; she has beautiful pictures!

Do ya'll have any good ideas for your summer tables and party's..please do tell.
