The colors of summer

This table gives off­ all the summer feels — fresh air, cool breeze, flowers in bloom, and sunny afternoons. Whether you have an upcoming simcha or you want to experience summertime all year long, these colors will do the trick.

Vibrant Welcome

Bright colors have an undeniable eye-catching power. While I do enjoy neutral tablescapes and decor, there’s something about summer that has me thinking about all its beautiful hues — pinks, corals, greens, and yellows. For any summer setup, bright linens and vibrant flowers are a must-have! Fresh greenery and colorful blossoms make this table a welcoming sight.

Patterned Inspiration

This floral tablecloth, which I found while browsing through the fabric store, was the inspiration for this entire look. It felt so much like summer! You can use any fabric straight off the roll as a tablecloth. Measure the length of your table and add 10 inches to either end for a nice overhang.

Exclusively Summer

Nothing captures the essence of summer’s bounty quite like these decadent arrangements of green hydrangeas, orange ranunculus, red gerbera daisies, green cockscomb, and lots of leaves. To assemble this arrangement, I walked around the flower shop and chose stems that coordinated with the cloth. I looked specifically for fresh, vibrant flowers exclusive to summer. The final result was an artful arrangement with bright and warm colors, adding a cheerful and joyful atmosphere and a lively look.

Country Vibe

Think back to childhood memories of the country and the small towns you visit that define your summer. To have this table give off that rustic vibe, I added wood elements in the chairs and vases.

Special Touches

Solid mint-green plates and coordinating green cups are the perfect base for the place settings, while the floral tablecloth adds a pop of pattern. I also placed a ranunculus stem at each place setting. These came from the florist, but you can do the same with what’s already in your yard or garden.
