Ants in the kitchen?

 Since summer is around the corner I thought I would redo the kitchen table. I love to go on a picnic.  This should get me in the mood for the real thing (if we will stop having these thunderstorms).  I found these ant plates at Pier 1 and thought they would be perfect. Of course these are the only ants that I would welcome.

I didn't have any red napkins so I just used some white paper napkins for the picture.  I think red would of been better since I have a white tablecloth.  My table top is glass and the plates didn't show up as well as they do on the white.

So, who's ready for a picnic?
