Spring

Lemon Tablescape

This lemon tablescape is a great summer look! I have been wanting to do a lemon tablescape for months! It was a cloudy day and so this made the inside looked so bright and cheery!

Table setting

This table setting is a bright spot on the table with a lemon yellow flower and yellow accents in the napkins.

Centerpiece

The centerpiece has bright white and yellow flowers to continue the theme. The little lanterns add a nice touch as well. The lemons are real and look wonderful nestled in among the leaves.

Lemonade for a Lemon Tablescape

A Lemon Tablescape would not be complete without lemonade! The white glasses with gold trim are the perfect compliment to the lemonade.

Independence Day

Independence Day Tablescape

This tablescape is a tribute to our July 4th celebrations! It is full of the patriotic colors we love and a little bit of whimsy for fun!

This table setting has red, white and blue galore! From the red napkins encircled by a blue star to an American flag silverware holder. The centerpiece includes little white lanterns with flags with table scatter to create some whimsy.

American Flag silverware holders

Here’s a close up of the American flag silverware holders. I’m sure there is an official name for them, but just being practical! The little stars that hold them together are just fasteners pushed through the material. The flags are 25 cent flags from the dollar store! I love how these turned out!

Patriotic Lanterns

Here is a close up of the little lanterns and table scatter. I love the color the table scatter adds to the white tablecloth, and the lanterns are just a cute touch with the flags pushed in.

Whole table view

Here is the whole table again from an angle. I love how festive it is! Feel free to share your tablescapes with me and enjoy your 4th of July parties and celebrations!

This Father’s Day  Tablescape has a masculine feel to it to honor fathers.

For my husband, my son cooked him an Asian meal, so we put soy bowls and chopsticks in this tablescape for him.

The napkin ties were a creative manly addition to the tablescape, and the chop sticks were a gift from my mother-in-law.

“Down the Shore”

Whenever June rolls around, my thoughts turn to “going down to the shore.”  It has been a family tradition to go on vacation to the Jersey shore.  I grew up going there every summer and the sights and sounds of the shore will always thrill me!

Sea Shells Tablescape

This tablescape is my homage to the shore.  The seashell candle holders and the large shell candle holder add the beachy feel to the scene.  The small conch shell is real and found by my son when he was young on the beach!

Sea Shells Tablescape 2

This table setting is simplistic with no layers (and I forgot a spoon!  oops!), but it fits with how we would do dinners at the shore.  Simple and delicious!

 

Have to show off these little gems! They are mini-grills which remind me of grilling out down by the beach, or in the backyard.  They are made with chocolate candies, Mike n Ike candies and black icing.

A bird’s eye view of our patriotic table! Love all of the red, white and blue!

Another view of the full table.  The colors just pop on this white tablecloth which I sewed to fit the table.

The little flags add a nice patriotic touch to the place setting, and the plates remind of picnics out at a park near our house which was a Revolutionary War Park commemorating the soldiers who fought for our freedom

The little ball centerpiece is made of wood shavings and is a cute piece of art to complete the table!
