Summer Dinner Party Essentials
Spring is here and so is the season of al fresco dining! One of my favorite things is to host and with the warmer weather headed our way, I could not think of a dreamier night than one outside surrounded by friends and food! With the recent launch of our new outdoor collection, I have been so inspired and wanted to share with you all some of my favorite decor looks for your summer tabletop.
The first go-to for your summer dinner party is a beautiful table runner. Whether using a round or long rectangular table, a table runner adds an elegant layer for florals, centerpiece, and place settings! Layer your table with colorful serveware to create a fun and fresh look. I absolutely love the look of our Garden Green Table Runner paired with pops of blue from our French Blue Temple Jar and new Country Estate plates, bowls, and cake stands!
Another way to get creative is by mixing and matching patterns with solids and stripes! Our beloved new Penelope print has done so well indoors that we couldn’t help but bring it out for summer. With our new placemats, coasters, and napkins, there are so many options for an eye-catching spread. Pair with neutral serveware or add some excitement with sweet colorful vases. Try pairing with our Country Estate serveware or melamine tumblers for pops of blues that look so chic with Penelope.
Pulling from our Penelope inspiration, florals are such an important part of summer. Especially when hosting, I love having fresh florals to create a warm and welcoming space. Resting in a variety of jars and vases, or even in more neutral holders, floral arrangements elevate any space to the next level. Always remember to keep your arrangements low so those gathered around the table can still easily chat. Try having one large floral centerpiece with smaller arrangements placed around it for a powerful statement!
