Hello, everyone! I'm excited today to be part of a group of lovely ladies who are participating in a Summer Tablescape Blog Tour hosted by Katherines Corner. Each of us has designed a summer tablescape to share with you. After you check out my post, please be sure to stop by the other blogs on this tour and see the amazing tablescapes these ladies have designed.
I wanted to design a tablescape that focused on natural elements of nature as much as possible. So, I began with place mats with a lovely leaf pattern on them topped with my trusty Winn-Dixie china plates.
Keeping with the nature theme and the green of summertime, I used a green filigree centerpiece container filled with stones and seashells that we have collected on various vacation trips and kept as keepsakes over the years. To add to the nature theme, I also placed three pine cone sticks into the mix. The self lighting candle in the middle adds to the ambience. I so enjoy dining by candlelight!
I'm also using rocks as name card holders. I wrote the names on little cards and taped on a seashell then taped the name cards to the rocks.
I think my tablescape is an eclectic mix of china, crystal, rocks and shells.
The setting is meant to reflect casual elegance while thinking about fun summer trips we have enjoyed!
How about you? How do you bring summertime to your table? Hope you'll leave a comment and share your thoughts! And, please remember to pop over to the other blogs on the blog tour. Enjoy!
Until Next Time,
