Summer is here and you are entertaining on the patio more than inside. Getting outside and enjoying the beautiful weather makes summer the greatest time of the year.
A table set with decorations and place sets inspired by summer can make the day more festive. No paper plates and Styrofoam cups required this year.
You can set an elegant summer table with very little effort and even less money. You save because the place settings are reusable for the next soiree. Read on to find out how to design a table that is fashionably casual.
Themes – Choosing a great theme for the event is most important. You can go with the fresh flowery settings for casual dining or something more elegant for a sophisticated evening with friends. For a touch of elegance spray paint some plastic fruits in silver and gold and create a magnificent centerpiece. Less formal, use a fresh vase of daisies that will certainly do the trick.
Get into the swing of things with summer colors. Using flowers and place mats that contrast against the tablecloth is a great start to a beautiful summer table. Make sure you balance the colors and that they do not clash.
Get back to nature by using natural woods like bamboo. You can use colored rocks in clear glass vases with sprigs of fresh green vegetation and beautiful summer flowers. This will give your table a more natural outdoorsy look.
