Tablescape Tuesday: I Spy Summer!

“Therefore you are great, O Lord God. For there is none like you, and there is no God besides you, according to all that we have heard with our ears”
2 Samuel‬ ‭7‬:‭22

Although summer doesn’t start for a few weeks, Memorial Day seems to usher in the season!  After visiting Seaside last week and enjoying the colorful exteriors of the homes that line their little beach town (see here), I started thinking coral and turquoise for a tablescape!  Hope you see how simple this setting is!

 Last week while shopping in Fairhope, I purchased the burlap table runner, so I had to use it immediately!  Am I the only one who does that?  My oak leaf hydrangeas are in full bloom-they became the centerpiece!  I love mixing colors, patterns, and textures…cotton coral and turquoise napkins were used! The napkin rings are a new purchase, also.  Cream dinner plate with no charger-unusual for me! I like the ruffles on the burlap runner…softens the fabric!  Blooms are large on the oak leaf hydrangeas!  There are three hurricane containers of hydrangeas on the table along with four cream votives!  I used two stemware patterns and alternated them as I did the napkins!  This photo shows how basic the table setting is-but by simply alternating napkin colors, it gives the table some vavoom! I used a pair of cream tole florals between the hydrangeas!  The china and flatware are a staple for my tablescapes!  You can easily make it look fresh by adding different napkins and center pieces!  The “Mr. and Mrs.” burlap chair back covers were made for Seth and Allie’s wedding…thought they added fun to the table!  You can see more photos of their wedding here:  The Wedding Edition “A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver”

    Vavoom is right! I’m like you, Pam. I get very excited with new things and am anxious to use them immediately. I love your new runner and the napkin rings, too. Thanks for sharing your beautiful table. I think it looks more vintage this way, since back in the day, you didn’t see chargers, place mats, and all those things. Only a table cloth, at best. I’m hopping over now to view those beautiful Seaside homes. 🙂

    This is a pretty tablescape. Don’t you just love all of the flowers this time of year? Different flowers really make the table look different, even if the dishes are the same. Stopping by from the Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop, Michele

    Beautiful Pam! I love the new runner and the colorful napkins are so fun. Your Hydrangea blooms are gorgeous! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

    This is absolutely stunning!! My daughter will be 50 next July and her favorite color is red. I find it difficult to use red as a primary color in the summer. Not crazy about the typical red, white & blue. Your tablescape has inspired me so much I plan to use these colors for our tables!! Thank you, Barbara
