Hi, everyone! I’m bringing you a bright and cheery summer tablescape today as part of the Summer Progressive Dinner Party blog hop, hosted by my friend Heather from Southern State of Mind. If you’re coming from This Is Our Bliss, welcome! Love this group of ladies and excited to see what they’re sharing today!
I can’t tell you how fun it was to create a tablescape in my new kitchen! If you missed the transformation, you can see my One Room Challenge reveal with Before & Afters HERE. It’s just so nice to have a kitchen I’m proud of as a backdrop to a tablescape. Love it! I feel like every tablescape from here on out will start with ways to dress up our new chandelier!
I was roaming the aisles of Hobby Lobby and when I got to the faux florals I thought it’d be so pretty to fill the chandelier with layers of greenery and top it with some flowers. I bought two strands of greenery and two bunches of flowers. I just pulled the flower heads off of their stem and placed them sporadically wherever I wanted.
If you saw my kitchen reveal, you know these are different chairs. I actually put the new chairs in the dining room and brought the dining chairs in here. They’re still not perfect, I have other chairs in mind, but I think they work better in here than the others, in the mean time. I also found a new rug!
To be honest, I’m not 100% sold on the new rug. It’s very pretty, but not quite as saturated as I’d like. Also.the majority of the greens are in the center, and that’s covered up by the table. Hmmmm.
Back to the tablescape…
I found these vintage candle holders at an antique store recently and I’m just so in love with the shape and color!
I’ve had these cute ceramic lemons from Target for a few years, so when I came across this adorable table cloth, I knew I had to incorporate them somehow. (Yes, that’s actually a tablecloth and I folded it to turn it into a runner) I ended up using the lemons decoratively on each napkin to hold them down. If you want to up the cuteness factor, you could turn them into place card holders by maybe putting an initial sticker on each? I love this idea, I just didn’t get around to doing it. Lol Just go ahead and picture initials on the lemons and “ooh and aah” at the adorableness that could have been. #endoftheschoolyear #aintnobodygottimeforthat
As for the centerpiece, I had three clear, simple vases and mixed some yellow tulips and some greens and whites (and a leftover sunflower or two from last week- pardon those being on their last legs but sunflowers are my favorite and just scream summer, so I had to use them!)
