Summer Blues Tablescape Idea’s

As summer is heating up, we are forced to dine inside more and more. I decided it was time for an indoor table refresh. My Hydrangeas are blooming so much better this year, so their beautiful blue color was the inspiration for my summertime table.

Are you ready for some Summer Tablescape Ideas? Here is my Summer Blues Tablescape Idea’s Tour. Since the hydrangeas are in full bloom, I decided a blue table theme would be perfect for these hot summer days. So I began with a basket full of hydrangeas and ferns, and started to build my table from there. In addition, I decided Grace would be the prefect addition to watch over the summertime table.

Shades of Blue complete the tablescape idea’s

Prints of Grace upon grace are available in my store

To add texture to the tablescape, I used a handmade basket for the center piece and woven chargers for the place settings.

Mix & Match Summer Blue Dishes

I love mixing a variety of dishes on my tablescapes because they create a more unique and interesting table. To see another summer tablescape click here.

I decided to keep the setting light with just minimal pieces. I’ve combined a dinner plate with a dessert plate and added the salad bowls to the side.

Simple white linen napkins are placed under the dinner plate for a clean and crisp look.

Add a pop of unexpected color

Adding a pop of unexpected color will also enhance and create a unique feel to the place setting. I decided to add a fresh peach to the center of each plate because it’s peach season here in the south.

Add Texture

Woven place mats, rustic basket center piece and wooden serving pieces add interest as well as texture to the table. The sea turtle bowl from Arthur Court Design is a fun and interesting addition to a summer blues tablescape.
