Tablescaping for summer

I’ve been wanting to share a tablescape post with you for a while now, especially since it’s summertime and summer means entertaining to me. The weather is nice, it stays light until 9pm, there’s fresh flowers + foods to highlight and all sorts of reasons to get family & friends together for indoor and al fresco dinner parties.

Now to be honest, most of the time I have company, I throw the food out on the bar buffet-style with plastic cups and paper napkins, but there are those times that call for a little more finesse.  So, I’ve put together (along with Lucy the intern’s help) a series of posts on tablescaping ideas. We will be presenting a bunch of themes and sharing a collection of images for each theme as inspiration for your (& my) dinner parties.

The first theme is burlap…

Burlap 4: The Sweetest Occasion

The 2nd theme is Kraft paper…

Paper 1: 100 Layer Cake

Paper 2: Green Wedding Shoes

Paper 3: Sunday Suppers

Paper 4: Emerson Made (via Ruffled)

Stay tuned, in upcoming weeks since I will be sharing more tablescaping ideas.


  1. Burlap and kraft paper! Two of my favorite textures. Many of my crafts incorporate at least one, if not both of them. Definitely my “go-to” materials. It’s getting to the point where my gifts speak for themselves: earth tones, natural, rustic fibers…must be a gift from BlueEyedYonder!
