step by step summer tablescape


Hi friends, hope you’re having a great week. Today, I’m joining a bunch of my blogger friends to share some our Summer tips in the home. If you’re coming from Dara at Hoodcreek Log Cabin, welcome! I just loved everything about her summer porch refresh. I could sit out there all day if I had a porch like that.

Recently at Costco, I saw gorgeous peonies for sale and decided that I must create a tablescape with these gorgeous blooms. You can only buy peonies for one season so I had to take advantage of their beauty while they lasted. Creating a tablescape doesn’t have to be complicated so I shared some simple tips in creating your own at home for that next special gathering. I think tablescapes take the dining experience up a notch because you put in that extra care and attention to detail for your guests. 

Here’s a simple tutorial to creating your own.

Step 1: Place down a table linen and present your centerpiece. I placed a vase full of these gorgeous peonies and mixed them with fresh cut hydrangea blooms from my own yard. The colors just scream summer. A centerpiece doesn’t have to be flowers. You could use candles, lanterns, plants, etc.

Step 2: Place chargers on the table and your main plate. Chargers are larger decorative base settings for your dishes. Don’t eat off of them as they’re not food safe!

I used a gold patterned charger and placed white dishes on top. 

Step 3: Place folded napkins under each large plate and then add another smaller salad/appetizer plate on top. This is a great way to mix and add colors and textures to your table setting.

This set of 4 linens were on clearance at Anthropologie recently and I snatched them up. I love that they are different colors. 

Step 4: Add your stemware. I placed these vintage inspired pink glasses along with the stemless gold wine glasses.

Step 5: Place your flatware. I used these gold utensils to match the rest of the gold theme on the table.

Step 6: You can stop after step 5 but I decided to add a little something to each place setting with a peony bud in a mini vase.

Pretty simple right? I’m pretty sure the flowers steal the show am I right? I only bought one bunch and there were so many blooms!
