An outdoor-inspired summer tablescape is the ultimate way to celebrate the warm, long Shabbosim ahead. Whether you’re entertaining a group or cooking for two, a stylish table setting makes those longer meals that much more enjoyable.
Tablescaping is all about creating a mood and setting the scene for unforgettable moments with friends and family, all while beautifying your home.
Set the Scene
Setting the table properly adds a sense of importance to your Shabbos meal. Not sure where to start? Grab your favorite tablecloth and lay it across your table to set the tone. Floral patterns, like this garden party print, will liven up any meal.
Once you’ve decided on your base, it’s time to start layering placemats/chargers, plates, glasses, and, of course, adding a napkin. The goal is a pretty tablescape, but ultimately you want your table to be practical.
For this tablescape, we wanted to create the look of a vintage-y botanical garden with all the summer feels. We tapped into the florals with new Loulu Hart pink lucite floral chargers, accented with a vintage-looking white plate, floral salad plates, and more floral with the little bread-and-butter plate. The glasses completed the look, giving an old-school garden party vibe. As you can see here, print on print can look fabulous. Don’t be afraid to be creative and adventurous!
