Summer is peeking around the corner. It’s time to think about summer entertaining. Do you love gathering friends around a pretty table? I have 13 pretty summer tablescape ideas to inspire you.
School will be out in a few weeks. Vacations, Vacation Bible School, summer jobs, and camp will be coming up. We should savor the joy of entertaining friends while the weather is warm and sunny.
One of the most fun parts of hosting a party is setting a pretty table. It’s the main decoration for any gathering. Your table may be the first thing guests see before they smell or taste the food.
There is no better time than a lovely summer day for entertaining friends with a beautiful tablescape.
- You have a variety of different colors to choose from.
- Fresh flowers are abundant and make it easy to create lovely floral arrangements.
- Warm weather makes it easy to dress comfortably and casually.
- Everyone wants to be outside, hopefully in the shade.
If you are lucky enough to have a garden, it makes the perfect backdrop for a summer celebration. Any outdoor space, such as a patio, porch or pool area, are great places to set up easy summer tablescapes.
Outdoor entertaining, such as daytime brunches and luncheons, is a wonderful way to celebrate girlfriends. Summer dinner parties have a warm glow from candles and string lights.
The possibilities for the perfect summer tablescape are endless. You can choose a color palette that is soft and warm or bright and tropical. Summer party decorations can be as simple as pool floats, baby pools, tiki torches, or beach balls.
Use any or all of these ideas for your coming summer soirees. The ideas that I’ve chosen are not only fun and pretty, but they are also easily repeatable.
