  1. What a fun, welcoming summer table Lory! Nothing says summer better than the colors you chose, and I love those checks! This is such a happy table setting for any kind of party or dinner with family and friends. I’m excited to be part of this Style + Set Tour with you. xo Lidy

  2. Lory, this is gorgeous and I love your tips! You know I love that blue and white! It’s so fabulous with all that red and those floral plates! Thank you as always for hosting such a fabulous tour – I’m honored to be a part of it!! xoxo

    1. Thank you, Tamara! And yes, I can’t wait to get over to your post because the teaser photo is stunning! Love having you join us!!

  3. I love your tips, however in Australia our seasons are the opposite of those in the northern hemisphere. Is there a way I can look back at your winter and spring ideas


    1. Thanks so much, Liz, and yes, you certainly can! For both the Homestyle and Tablescapes categories, there’s a drop down menu (hover over the category to see it) that groups posts by season. You can head right to the winter ones for now! 🙂

  4. Love the crisp red, white and blue on the table Lory…and as always, much appreciate you hosting us 😉

  5. This is summer perfection Lory! I love the combo of the hydrangeas and roses. Those floral plates are on sale so I just may treat myself. Thank you so much for putting this tour together. It was such a bright spot in my week!

    1. Thanks so much, Ann! I think it was a bright spot in a lot of people’s weeks because of all the gorgeous posts from the whole group… 🙂 I know I enjoyed it!!

  6. So fresh and beautiful Lory! I love the blue porcelain mixed with the floral plates, wood chargers and every little touch you added. And those cheese sticks are a fav too! Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of this stunning tour!

  7. Love your table setting! I choose yours out of all the ones shown – just love the pops of red in the centerpiece and the checked napkins! Your flowered salad plates are gorgeous! Love those flowers on the plates and the blue goblets. This is just lovely. I can picture myself having dinner and being so happy at your table (wish it was mine!!!) STUNNING!

  8. What a gorgeous table Lory! I’m loving all the blue and white (my fav!) and the cute floral napkin rings are such a special touch. And I’m crushing on those chargers -now think I need to have a chunky wooden charger for sure:)

    Thanks again for hosting, and for including me in such a talented group!

    Happy Summer!


  9. So beautiful Lory! I love the colors and design aesthetic. Happy 4th of July, my friend!
    Hugs, Jamie

  10. This table feels like summer and I love the vivid colors. My children keep telling me that the last thing I need is new dishes, and I’m in love with your colorful plates. I typically buy colorful salad plates to pair with a white dinner plate, but after seeing this set I think I need these dishes. Thanks for the inspiration!

  11. What a gorgeous table to welcome Summer and yes, an American table with the blues and the red checks. The floral plates are lovely too. Love it all Lory and thanks for your tips too.

  12. Beautiful table settings! Love that the table setting of red, white and blue is for all summer and not just 4th of July theme.

  13. Where did you get the floral napkin rings? ❤️

  14. Beautiful table setting. I love the chargers but the link doesn’t work. Can you send the link to me? I’m interested in the floral plates too but that link isn’t working either. Can you send that one too?

    Thank you

    1. Thank you, Jennifer! Yes, unfortunately they were from Pier 1 and now that they are closing stores, their links don’t work. I’ve updated the post to offer options, but the exact plates and chargers are not available. If you really love the plates, there are a few on eBay right now and you can try to collect them over time because they do show up from time to time. But I’ve also added some substitutes in the post. For the chargers (which were also from Pier 1), you can try a plain wood charger like this one: https://rstyle.me/+S2FDUiGdBrPL_9mTV9pISQ For the plates, you can try these: https://rstyle.me/+J1Sdzfu9ddxcQEwxrxV2Gg I would then do those with blue and white check napkins instead of red and white. I have some linked in the post now. Hope that helps!

  15. What a lovely tablescape. I’m in love with the garden floral salad plates and must have them!!! They aren’t shown on e-bay. What is the pattern name, please.

  16. Thank you for your fast reply. Your tablescapes are lovely and so enviable.

  17. SO beautiful Lory! Your tables are always stunning no matter what colors! 🙂
    Thanks for the inspiration – I love the salad plates. Happy Almost Summer!

    Hey lori, I loved the hole conceptof the table to me it was just spectacular. I’m definitely ordering the flower dishes & the napkins I already have the blue & white vases, but have to buy the flowers. I’m having a fourth of July party this year. I want to thank you for the inspiration. Can’t wait., but I think I’m having some ants at this party lol ty
