Tablescapes, Summer Favorites

Right now I’m recovering from family vacation last week, 😴  and catching up, so I rounded up some of my very favorite summer tables to revisit

They are full of ideas, inspirations and crafts you might like to try for your summer tables and vignettes

Trattoria Sardina

These colorful fish plates inspired ideas for painted accessories to go with them

They are still available at Anthropologie here

 

 

 

Bursting with Summer

This table features painted colorful wine bottles, embellished with buttons, beads and ribbons

 

 

 

Washed Ashore has a large centerpiece full of things that might wash up on the beach, sea glass, shells, bottles and boats…so easy and fun to throw together in a big shallow basket tray

 

 

 

Blue Skies & Yellow Roses

Blue and yellow make a perfect summer palette, and elegant accessories mixed with more casual elements play nicely on this bright table

 

 

Netting Crabs

Another easy centerpiece with a runner made from a length of netting and scattered with shells surrounding a hurricane with shells tucked around the fat center candle

 

 

A Sea of Texture

Candlelight dining with shell filled candlesticks with fine china, silver and crystal for that special summer occasion

 

 

Off Duty

An unexpected surprise, such as this lifeguard chair inside a lantern makes a fun centerpiece or conversation starter

 

 

Moroccan Fantasy

This table features DIY beaded chargers, pineapple pillows and a sari runner

 

 

Watermelon Basket

Carving a watermelon basket makes not only a centerpiece but a perfect way to serve cut up fruit

 

 

Ode to the Seashell

Shell embellished forks and a shell charger bring the beach to wherever you are

 

 

A Pirate’s Tale

Treasure maps and pirates booty scattered on this table make it fun for pirates of all ages, and PBJ skull sandwiches will get all the little ones lunching

 

 

Candied Lemon Martinis

Invite the girls over and serve them a Candied Lemon Martini in a dramatic summer setting

 

 

Sea of Glass

Tiles make great outdoor place mats, and there is nothing prettier than colored glass sparkling in the sunshine

 

 

And finally, since Wimbledon is going on this week…

Breakfast at Wimbledon

 

 

Have your strawberries and cream atop tennis racquet “placemats”

 

 

Then head outside for a refreshing Creamsicle Mimosa

 

 

Have some Hot Pink Fun this summer!

 

Celebrate the season!

  2. How lucky for us you are recovering from your big week of entertaining house guests Jenna! So many great and fun ideas for setting tables creatively in here. I recognized a few but many were new to me. I especially love the life guard chair inside the lantern and the tennis racket place mats as well as the colors in Off Duty. Thank you! Rest up!
