Summertime DIY outdoor table settings are as free & easy as you want them to be. Or as formal too. Even themes are fun. Or design by color. Although a specific Holiday may be on your mind. So when you’re looking for a summertime table setting, think outside the box and make it personal to the event.
Summertime DIY Outdoor Table Settings
Be relaxed at the beach. Make it festive by adding a variety of pillows, throws and a linen tablecloth. Finish with casual dinnerware, glasses & good candle holders that will withstand the wind. Add your home cooked specialty or good takeout, and your all set!
Below is a selection of pillows offered on our Home Decor Shop that can be integrated into a casual beach picnic.
Design with layering in mind. Design with layering in mind for a more formal tabletop yet with a casual flair. Begin with a white tablecloth and layer with a color coordinated table runner. Layer dishes in alternating colors. Layer glassware in like colors. Casually layer a collection of centerpieces, such as the flowers in a stemmed glass, a simple bowl of fresh figs for color and a white jardiniere.
Decorate with a definite color palette. Keep things simple by staying with a definite color palette. Shades of that color from dishes, glassware, napkins, vases & decorative pillows create a soothing relaxed tablescape. And notice that with a monochromatic color scheme, the food & the centerpiece of white peonies & lovely greens take center stage.
And with a theme in mind, you can have a little fun! The bandana tablecloth really sets the tone. As well as the boots! This is a fun yet simple & sophisticated tablescape.
