Easy Summer Tablescape

Easy Summer Tablescape

Today I want to share with you an easy, quick and casual tablescape for summer.

I started with some large lace doilies and used them as placemats.

Then I layered some simple green dishes and small toleware trays.  I am pretty sure these would be considered “tip trays”.  Some are matching, but not all, and I like the mix.  I wouldn’t actually serve food on these, but I felt like they were an easy and simple way to add color and give the table a summer feel.  “Tip trays” are usually fairly easy to find at yard sales, etc., and I know they can be found on Etsy.

I also added some chalkboard seat markers that I found at Target.  They are actually on little easel backs, but I like them hooked on the plates.

These napkin holders were an unusual find at an estate sale, but I feel they could easily be recreated.  They are hand painted vinyl cut in the shape of a flower.  I just rolled the napkin, pulled it through the center and placed in the water glass.  They could easily be recreated using something as simple as paper or fabric with a fabric stiffener added to it.

Since I didn’t have any large hydrangea blooms yet, I grouped a handful of smaller blooms in varying sizes of small canning jars.  I added a few votive candles and placed them on a serving tray.  The “fence” around the tray was actually leftover from a fence I had bought for a fairy garden.  I just felt like it added a little summery detail.

The platter is placed on a simple vintage embroidered runner.

It doesn't take a whole lot of layers and pieces for a casual table in the summer for it still to be pretty.

Less time spent setting a table means more time spent with friends who are joining you there.
