Tablescapes For Summer Entertaining

If you are like me, you might enjoy doing a lot of outdoor entertaining during the Summer.  Although it is usually especially beautiful already in an outdoor setting, having a gorgeous tablescape to enhance the surroundings is like icing on a cake.

It was fun to gather up some of my favorite tablescapes for Summer, that I found, that had the most creativity and visual interest.

Here is what I found:

Lobster bake tablescape by How To Decorate

Take me to this party…please!  It looks so inviting!  I love all of the rustic touches.  The flowers can be simply gathered from your yard and placed in a jar and then covered in a white paper bag that is tied off with twine or raffia.  Click on the photo for all of the great details.

Lobster bake tablescape by HGTV

I might be on a lobster bake kick but I really like this next tablescape as well.  It could also be used for a Summer fish fry.  I am loving the minnow bucket used as an ice bucket!  It’s also a great idea to simply use newspaper as a tablecloth.  Not only is it cost effective and recyclable but it looks great especially as a back drop to the blue and white place settings.

Natural design using moss by Apartment Therapy

Here is a simple and fresh idea using moss and other greenery.  A scattering of white candles completes the perfect look for Summer.

Daisies and vintage bottles by Design Botanica

A collection of vintage bottles, daisies, and pinwheels……what else do you need for a bright and cheery table to entertain your guests?  This combination will definitely draw the eye in.

I have seen several different patriotic tablescapes but I particularly liked this one which was also a nautical or beachy theme.  The colored starfish are a great way to signify the stars and I love the nautical rope tying the silverware together.

Happy Entertaining!
