We love summer dining and entertaining and i really enjoy creating beautiful summer tablescapes. One of the trends for outdoor summer decor is an Aztec type print in dinnerware and textiles. I also love a crisp black and white table to for summertime. This table ideas marries both concepts and I love how it turned out.
Dining AlFresco is one of my favorite things in the summertime. We enjoy our beautiful view and spend so much time outside. Creating a pretty tablescape always makes it feel more special. I love this simple look and think it’s perfect for an everyday look. I teamed up with JCPenney to create this look that’s perfect all summer long.
For the place settings, I layered a black round placemat with a creme dinner plate and then mixed in these fun patterned salad plates. For more texture I added a bold check napkin with a greenery napkin ring. Then I placed an acrylic smoky black drink ware with it. They also had some beautiful serving pieces.
For the centerpiece, I made these fun stenciled terra cotta pots to coordinate and then these pretty lanterns with battery operated candles for night time ambiance. I always love to use lighting for outdoor dining. The flowers are also “faux” geraniums made for the outdoors from Afloral. They have a gorgeous selection of permanent flowers.
I hope these will give you some summer inspiration for entertaining. Be sure to subscribe to your weekly newsletter to stay up on all the latest posts and details on what’s new!
