Summer Table Manners!

I love  beautiful summer table settings! It's the time of year that we want to be outdoors with friends and family.  There are so many ways to dress up a table that can be cool yet inviting. I tend to lean towards simple and fresh with a mix of blues and whites.. but for reason I am drawn to all neutrals this summer. Maybe its the unbelievable heat wave we are having but for some reason I am drawnto whites and pale earth tones with touches of watery blue. I found some great finds from Furbish Studio, Crate & Barrel , Etsy and of course our favorite blogger The Enchanted Home. Hope you enjoy and try to stay cool where ever you are!
Etsy-burlap Table cloth or go bare table with a simple linen runner!

The above nine images are from that wonderful store-Furbish Studio!!

The above four are from Crate & Barrel, I love the acrylic stemware and glasses..no worries about dropping a glass here! I also love the wooden charger it adds a little rustic element to the table.

 The above two are from The Enchanted Home, I love these they also add an organic  feel to the table.

Love a simple split leaf rhododendron one per vase or in just a few vases gives that summer feel!

Last but not least candle wax luminaries-QCandle!


  1. Beautiful, Karolyn! I love the neutrals for summer too.
    Love all of your choices here, especially the chair and Tina's dough bowls.

  2. The C&B glasses are great! After breaking several Reidel, we decided to try these. I'm a neutral fan too:) and have one of Tina's dough bowls that's always filled with flowers or fruit. The olive trays are wonderful too and cheese always seems to look so good displayed there. Burlap is everywhere this summer! That tablecloth at the top is so pretty!

  3. I've always loved that tablecloth, and just found 6 of the bamboo folding chairs on Craigslist for $15 ea., my lucky day! :)

  4. gorgeous picks, karolyn!
