  1. LOVE the color combination. Every detail is so gorgeous. Well done!

  2. Oh my goodness, Lory! The colors of your table are dreamy! No wonder you were inspired by the plates. And where did you find those gorgeous napkin rings. They are amazing on your table!
    You knocked this table out-of-the-park!

    1. Thanks so much, Yvonne! I struggle with the lighting in my dining room so I’m so glad the colors are resonating… 🙂 The napkin rings are from Pier 1. I’m actually going back in this morning to add the resources – that’s what happens when you write your post at 2am… lol.

  3. Pinned this beautiful table right away. It is indeed lovely. You have such a design gift.
    I enjoy your instagram so much too.

    1. Oh thank you, Bonnie! I’m glad you’re enjoying the Instagram too, because I’m starting to post some one-off photos there that don’t make it to complete blog posts… 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!!

  4. Wow is that ever pretty! The beautiful plate was a stunning starting point and I loved seeing my chargers and darling little pagodas in such lovely company:) Beautiful Lory!

    1. Thanks, Tina! Yes, I’ve actually been meaning to order more of those chargers but there’s always something new I want more… 😉 You definitely have my favorite online shop!!

  5. omg, Lory! I LOVE everything about this table! The colors, the flowers, the plates. Gorgeous!

    1. Thanks so much, Tina!! I think the flowers really make all the difference. I’ve had these plates for a while but never liked what I mixed them with before. I think they finally found their home… 🙂

  6. This might be my favorite table of yours Lory, gorgeous!

  7. I really love the flowers you used! Did they all come from your garden?

    I can never put that many decorative items on the table and still have room to put the serving dishes on the table.

    1. Thanks, Judith! No, the flowers are from the market, although it would be so much more practical to have a cutting garden… 🙂 I rarely put serving dishes on the table. For large gatherings I like to serve buffet style with serving dishes either on the sideboard or more frequently, on the island in the kitchen. For smaller groups I would plate the meal and serve that way.

  8. You have captured the softer side of summer and it feels great!

    Lori, your tablescape is gorgeous! Aqua and blush pink–with the brighter pinks in the astilbe and other flowers–is simply captivating!! Elegant, but fresh and contemporary too. One of my favorite tablescapes ever! Hope to interpret your design with items I have, but thank you for sharing your source list. Unfortunately, the alabaster dinner plates are no longer available.

    1. Oh, that’s a bummer. I could swear it was available when I put the link in the other day. I definitely saw it in store this week, as well, so you might be able to find it in person. There are also Vietri plates which I’m assuming these were knocked off from, but those are way more expensive. But I’ll leave the link because they often restock. Good luck!! And thanks for the kind words… 🙂

      1. Linda Kidd says:

        Thanks, Lori. I did check the store close to my house; they just had the salad plates. But I’ll keep checking. And I did see the Vietri as well! Or, I may use my mother-in-law’s china she gave me–it’s Royal Doulton Melrose–which has a turquoise rim. It would look quite elegant as well. I’m planning a ladies’ luncheon and your beautiful tablescape has given me wonderful inspiration. Thanks again.

  10. Lory, this table is magical! I love the colors and all the elements you used. And I want to thank you so for sharing where you purchased many of the items you include in your tablescapes. In doing this, you introduce us to new sources for finding lovely items. You have such a talent for combining unexpected colors and have quite an eye for beauty. Thanks so much for these lovely posts.

    1. Wow, thank you so much for such a lovely comment! It makes me feel so good to know people appreciate the posts and helps me plod forward when I get overwhelmed… 😉

  11. I’d call this summer perfection! Love the floral centerpieces- such a great pop of color and I like how the aqua napkins and the dinner plates work with the color of the antique mason jars. Lovely combination of elements!

    1. Thanks, Liz! I’m glad I finally worked out a way to use these plates because I do think they’re so pretty but I just wasn’t getting it right in the past. Glad it resonates with you… 🙂

  12. Are there two prettier colors together than pink and aqua? I don’t think so! Beautiful tablescape.

  13. Your table is so beautiful and summery. I especially love the colorful flowers in the blue mason jars and the flower napkin rings.

    Hello – Enjoyed this tablescape. Is there a way to get the “It’s all Set” Series to come to our inbox/email each month? I would love that! And where did you find those dishes? Thanks!

    1. Hi Mitzi! Thanks so much!! Yes, if you subscribe to my blog, you’ll get all of my posts to your inbox. If you prefer just to open the ‘It’s All Set’ ones, that’s fine, but I sometimes do other tablescapes, as well, so you can open the ones you’re interested in. You’ll also get my free E-Book, “A Year of Seasonal Decor” with your subscription… 🙂 There are several subscription boxes on my home page and any of them will work. I got the floral dishes at Macy’s, but I’m not sure they’re available there anymore, so I linked to where you can get them now in the post. Just click on the link at the bottom under source list where it says Floral salad plates and it will take you there. Thanks so much for your interest!

  15. I really enjoy your blog and this table is Beautiful as always! Pink and Aqua are one of my favorite combos. Thank you for linking to your beautiful candlesticks on Horchow – I just purchased them thru your link! (On sale too!!)

    1. Oh, thanks so much, Hilary! And I’m so glad you were able to get them… 🙂 I actually have them in two color ways – the washed silver and the bronzer color. I move them around a lot. You’ll enjoy them!!

  16. Oh my, what a dreamy tablescape. Those plates are absolutely amazing! I have the same napkin rings, they are so much fun to use and add such a nice pop of color to a table! The flowers you chose are the perfect partner with those dishes!

    So pretty! Where did you get the mason jar holder? I love it!

  18. Teddee Grace says:

    This is just gorgeous. Thanks for sharing.

  19. Beautiful so cheerful I am getting those pink pillar candles Thank You

  20. Had to search for my collection of Mason jars and wire basket. Never thought to pair them.

  21. I don’t have a table to decorate for summer outside of our small dining table and it always gets some fresh flowers or faux. Maybe I can do something with a pretty jar as you have here? The soft blue/green makes those flowers pop!
