This first months theme is: Summer Tablescapes
Is there anything better than summer
and when you put them together
It can be amazing……add a pretty table setting
and I am in heaven
Let’s take a look at my idea for a Summer Tablescape
I usually start my tablescapes with a theme or color scheme in mind
Adding a touch of Farmhouse
To add a farmhouse feel I used my burlap table runner as the base
Then I added my center focus piece which was an Italian glass jar
I placed faux wild flowers, white & coral blooms and daisies
This is not my real wild flowers but the real ones will be in bloom soon.
It wouldn’t be summer time at the farmhouse without a wild flower bouquet or two.
My current love for serving summer time drinks is Copper Mule Mugs
Don’t you just love the look……
I remember when I first saw one of these copper beauties
sometime last year, we were dining out and I saw someone with a copper mug
I didn’t know what drink was in the mug but I wanted one just because it looked so pretty.
So I got some of my own and have lots of enjoyment drinking and serving with these mugs
I love the color and are so appealing to look at.
Lemon & Limes and a Palm Leafs are ways to add a summer, look and feel to any table. I happen to see a palm plant being discarded at work so I grabbed the leaves before they made it to the dumpster. If you would like a similar look HERE is a option.
Place Setting item list:
These are the items I used to pull the place setting together. I shopped my kitchen cabinets.
White Plates – I have had these forever…..This is the set I have been hinting to my husband that I would love to get soon.
Small poka dot yellow plate
You probably have most of these items.
All Set For Fun
There you have it…..Simple and fun summer idea……
So easy to put together a pretty table….nothing crazy or expensive.
In fact, everything I used for this tablescape I already had except the lemons and limes.
Look around you home and see what you come up with . You can create a look that is unique. Have fun with it.
Gather your friends and make up a pitcher of Blueberry Cilantro Mule Cocktails
