Summer is a casual season and when it comes to having friends and family over, entertaining should be casual and easy too. I’m joining fellow bloggers in a summer entertaining series this week. A special welcome if you’re coming from Life on Virginia Street! Sarah always sets a pretty table. And a special thanks to Lory at Designthusiasm for organizing today’s event! I’ve put together a summer table setting that’s quick and fuss-free. My dining table is now in the former living room, giving my guests a little more elbow room.
The centerpiece is my favorite white ironstone pitcher filled with silk hydrangeas. Normally I like to use real flowers, but these will last longer.
Silk, peach-colored ranunculus adorn each place setting. I used more of these same flowers on my summer mantel that I shared a few weeks ago.
Place a flower atop each linen napkin and tie with a pretty ribbon. I used mini pom pom trim. It’s a quick and inexpensive solution for napkin rings.
Milk white tumblers and vintage silverware are favorites of mine. A blue and white table runner and burlap-like plate chargers add a little bit of color and texture to the table.
I did clip a couple of white hydrangeas from my bush outside and placed them in white ironstone bowls filled with water.
I finally got to use my new end chairs for my summer table setting. You may have first seen them during my spring home tour. They live in the sitting room next to the vintage mantel when we’re not dining.
Sweet, simple, and easy to pull together – just like a summer table setting should be!
Next up on today’s tour is Celebrating Everyday Life. Jennifer always sets a gorgeous table!
