Lake Placid Souvenir~Tablescape

Ah Summer!  We need a mini vacation.
How about spending some time at a lake?
Want to rent a cozy cottage on beautiful Lake Placid?
 Let's go! 

Check in & stop by the gift store to buy a souvenir tablecloth.
Grab some wild flowers for the porch table,
and set it for an informal lunch.  

Use vintage Texas Ware dishes, so cute and no worries
about breaking. 
Grab the plastic utensils and paper napkins.
Light your personal tea light candle.

Admire the sweet Chiquita Banana S & P shakers,
and the piggy honey jar.

Start with some fresh fruit while you're
waiting for those burgers.

Check out the activities shown on the tablecloth and
decide which fun things you'll do. 
Want to go sailing?

Try your hand at fly fishing?

Maybe play a little golf,
and tonight ~ go dancing. 

Good old fashioned fun.
Aren't you glad you came?
Now for some details,
Vintage Souvenir tablecloth - Lake Placid. 
This one is kind of rare and hard to find.
Yippee, I was lucky enough to find one!
Texas Ware/Dallas Ware vintage dishes, (melmac type.
Made in Dallas, Texas USA
Bought these dishes at a church thrift sale last week-end,
all 70 pieces.  (showed them off in my last "finds" post)
You can never have too many dishes!
Small green bowl is Fire King Jadeite, thrift store
for 50 cents.  Wish they had more than one!
