Welcome to the July edition of “It’s All Set” a monthly tablescape series brought to you by a group of my decor blogging buddies. Be sure to visit the other tables linked at the bottom of this post. For my setting this month, I gave some thought to what I like to see on the table once the summer is in full force and the thematic occasions like graduation and July 4th are well past. What makes me smile for an evening of seasonal entertaining is summer flowers in a colorful tablescape.
As with most of my tables, this one began with a patterned plate, in this case a cheerful floral in pinks and other sunbaked brights. This drove the color feeling of the entire presentation, and I chose to pull out the blue tones to pair with the pinks.
You can see the mixed palette throughout the tableau, with varied shades working together yet reading as primarily aqua and pink.
For the napkin cluster I layered a pale blush pink with ruffled edging beneath a soft aqua linen, all gathered together within these fabulous peony napkin rings.
To add some sculptural interest I added a few reproduction demijohns with sprigs of astilbe tucked inside.
The centerpiece is served in a grouping of blue vintage mason jars with a summery mix that includes gerber daisies and mini hydrangea.
For height I added silvery candlesticks with acanthus leaf designs. They’re topped with pink pillars for added warmth and rosy color.
Grounding the tablescape amidst this burst of summer color is a simple khaki runner and white linen placemats.
For stemware I went with blush pink flutes, again to pick up the rose tones. I love the way they play off the watery hued mason jars.
Backing the floral salad plates are my recently purchased aqua alabaster dinner plates and elegant silver chargers.
And just for a touch of fun I added these wonderful cerulean pagodas from my friend Tina of The Enchanted Home.
