Our founder Becca Casey shares 6 tips for creating the perfect summer tablescape.
1. Mix and match
In today’s casual settings, don't feel the need to match all of your tablewares. Staying aligned with a style will help you create a cohesive table, even if your dinner plates don't match your serveware.
2. Place hors d'oeuvres bowls throughout your table
Adorn additional options to pick at as guests dine. A cluster of olives in a bowl, crusty bread and a soft cheese dip will make room for informality at the table- creating a light and easy affair!
3. Think about beverage pairings
When deciding on your menu, think about what your drink pairings look like. A beautiful rosé in a clear glass bottle can really provide that final finishing touch in the landscape of your table arrangement.
4. Day or night, always include candle light
A flicker of candle light is transformative on any tablescape. It sets the tone, and who knows... it may carry guests into the night!
5. Find a shady spot
When setting up outside, it's important to think about how the sun light moves during the day. To keep guests cool, consider an area that will stay mostly shaded throughout their meal.
6. Enjoy the process
Putting a beautiful gathering together can become overwhelming. Lean on easy recipes that you know, forage greens from your surroundings, and let guests help you if they ask to! Allow it to be truly joyful and a moment to capture the fondest memories.
