Finally! It’s that time of year when your local farmer’s market has an overabundance of lush produce in every color of the rainbow.
We got to thinking about vegetables, their wide variety of textures, their varied hues (ever notice how many reds, purples and yellows tomatoes come in?), their interesting shapes. . .
And then we got to thinking, as we always do, about tabletops and entertaining ideas.
And then we searched far and wide for the best photos with ideas for integrating your farmer’s market finds with your tabletop decor. Some are simple, but beautiful, like the one above from Rachel Ray.
Some are elaborate, mixing the fun with a traditional tablecloth.
Some are contemporary. . .
Love these. . .
and these. . .
Some are surprisingly simple, like this colored cauliflower in tin cans. . .
Or this asparagus in terra cotta pots surrounded by pistachios. . .
Asparagus seems to be a favorite for tabletop decor. . .
Or how about some black beans and a green apple holding a daisy?
Five a day, they say. You need five servings of fruits and vegetables each day to satisfy your nutritional needs. It’s our suggestion that you pick up an extra bag of goodies next time you’re at your local farmer’s market. Your tabletop decor will thank you.
