Ask me where my favorite place on earth is and I’ll answer without skipping a beat. Hands down it’s the Amalfi Coast. So I decided to do a late summer tablescape inspired by my beloved Positano.One of the most notable aspects of the region is the vibrant colors, mimicked in this floral arrangement via blue hydrangea and yellow sunflowers.The tone of the setting was influenced by the ubiquitous Italian ceramics found in tiling and pottery throughout the coast. Placemats are from an old Ralph Lauren cottage home collection and the napkins are from Pottery Barn.Patterns are mixed, both for a layer of complexity and to best communicate the feeling of the area.This hand painted ceramic urn was purchased in Positano from a wonderful artisan.A view from the side reveals the layered napkins, tucked into a festive napkin ring.Lemons are placed in an antique Dresden bowl, a nod to the citrus ever-present along the coast, that flavors everything from pasta to gelato.Any Amalfi setting would not be complete without Limoncello and fresh Italian bread.Looped through the handle of the white Pottery Barn vase is a scarf from Dolce and Gabbana‘s Maiolica Limoni collection. The mixed plates are from Arte Italica, with Pier 1 salad plates laced between dinner plate and mug. A close-up of the plate stack shows rattan chargers from Pier 1.
