Simple Summer Table Decor


Simple white dinnerware is a must for the modern hostess. You can mix and match it with colors, you can dress it up for a formal place setting, and you can mix it with casual elements for a low-key dinner.

Yellow is of course the perfect color to incorporate into a summer dinner party. Yellow paired with that particular shade of blue creates a French country feel that is both elegant and casual. Whenever I want to make a place setting less formal, I love to use natural-looking fabrics and elements, like a woven charger plate. A small bunch of fresh yellow flowers pulls the look together. If you wanted the napkin on top of the setting, use a light blue ribbon to tie the flowers onto each napkin.


You don't always have to have a charger for a formal place setting. As long as you have a salad and dessert plate or a bowl stacked on top of the dinner plate, your place setting can look just as elegant if you use embellished white dinner ware. A few additional elements like stemware, a place card holder, and fresh flowers or candles will elevate the whole look. It's the perfect place setting for a semi-formal dinner at home.

I really love the look of the light blue with the light apple green pictured above. I've used this color palette for summer entertaining before; it's a great way to incorporate fresh produce into the centerpiece. Nestle fresh artichoke hearts and limes around candles and flowers along the center of the table.
