Ah summer entertaining! Truly the most effortless of all seasons in which to host; the food is easy, the setting is almost always outdoors and everyone comes in their best summer spirits. With the 4th of July right around the corner and nearly two more months of balmy conditions ahead of us, we thought we’d share a little tablescape inspiration.
Red, White & Blue
A patriotic trio perfect for celebrating the 4th! We’re brimming with all the things you need to set a festive table on the porch, just add flowers and the feast, of course. Our favorite outdoor accoutrement, melamine plates, make a statement in this setting that will delight a table of hungry Peachtree Road Race runners!
Need a little personal touch on the table? Our cute pinwheel placecards will do the trick! A classic bubble glass wine goblet and gorgeous Arte Italica blue charger lend a pretty touch to this no-fuss setting.
Whether it be a clambake or freshly caught fish on the grill, make your table equally as appetizing with our coastal-inspired picks. Taking our hostessing cues from maritime mavens like India Hicks, Ina Garten and Annie Falk, we’re all about letting the setting do all the work. Light linens, fresh greenery and organic touches work wonders!
Ensure your guests have a whale of a good time with our orca beverage tub and bottle opener. For condiments, use this pretty starfish sectional server and don’t forget the driftwood patterned melanine plates for the main course!
Wishing you all a very happy and safe Fourth!
