I’m showing you my 2 simple summer tablescapes today! The other day, we had friends over for dinner, and we had originally planned to eat outside, but it was so so windy, that I prepared the dining room table and we only BBQed outside.
We often get this really strong wind from the East, and it comes all the way over here to us, [we’re at the Atlantic] and can last for days! Not pretty!
I shut all the windows and those days we just have to be with the a/c on, cause it’s a hot wind on top and if the windows stay open, well my house would end up so sandy. This wind brings dust and sand and what not, so yeah, not loving it! I was so sad because it really had ruined my tablescape ideas for the night! It would’ve been so lovely outside! But then I quickly adapted and just set it up inside, oh well. We had a fun night anyways!
So my idea was, having a green colour scheme, because my front porch outside chairs have greenish pillows and I put green placemats on the table. So for inside I thought I’d do something with lots of succulents, a little farmhouse vibe and natural style. I had everything at home for this.
~ Ikea tea towels as place mats, folded in half
~ My grandma’s white linen napkins
~ Lavender from my little lavender bush in the garden
~ Mason Jars with fake fern inside
~ Succulents I had from before & fake ones as well
~ Small jars with rocks in them
~ The succulent centerpiece from the other day
~ My painted pebbles from the other week
When I had it all set up, I looked around, seeing all my nautical decor and I felt like doing a nautical style table scape. I had like 3 hours to go, so I was good with time and gave it a try!
~ My nautical style lanterns with rope in them
~ My rope jars
~ The bird I used for my summer vignette
~ The little rock jars
~ Ropes to tie the cutlery
~ Shells in a blue bowl and more rope to wrap around them
~ A bread basket
~ My grandma’s napkins as placemats
I stuck with the nautical style table scape, because I ended up running out of time and didn’t want to change everything back to the other setting. Although I really like them both and will do the succulent setting next time we have people over.
Which one is your fave? I hope you got some inspiration today, I always love that you stop by the blog! Thank you for that!
