Memorial Day is the unofficial kick off to summer and just two weeks away. With summer on the horizon, I’m happy to be part of a Welcome Summer Tablescape Blog Hop this week!
You’ll find links for summer table inspiration from 20 table stylists at the bottom of this post.
Between thunderstorms and with an eye on the weather, I found a window of sunshine for a little alfresco dining!
Sunny yellow lemons provided some cheery table inspiration in the form of a tablecloth and dinnerware. . .
And Sanpellegrino Sparkling Limonata cans were repurposed as flower vases for the table.
The colorful graphics on this sparkling lemonade make a fun flower vase! I used a can opener to remove the tops of the cans. You can upcycle any tin or metal can (with or without the label) as a vase for casual entertaining. I love the idea of an assortment of colorful cans blooming with garden flowers running down the length of the table!
I cut some Popcorn Drift Roses that are in bloom now. They start out yellow and fade to creamy white, reminiscent of buttery popcorn! They’re joining Japanese privet that’s also in bloom and yellow alstroemeria from the grocery store. I added some waxflowers left from another arrangement. I gave them a good trim and added them to the vases as filler.
I was all abuzz over the bee detail on the tablecloth and I pulled out my bee napkin rings. . .
Transform your napkin rings with magnets and a little Rub ‘n Buff, here.
A Galvanized Metal Three Tiered Stand is a favorite centerpiece and pulled into service frequently . . .
It’s functional as well as versatile, serving as a breakfast station, a centerpiece to Set Sail for Summer or to Celebrate the Red, White and Blue!
We’ve been in a rainy and stormy weather pattern for several weeks so I was thrilled when the clouds parted and Mother Nature provided us with some welcome sunshine.
Napoleon bee flatware is ready for garden season!
