Summertime is about slowing down, being more laid-back and entertaining more. Simple décor, food and drinks are all you need to put together a fabulous table.Red, white and blue linens are a must and this time of year there are so many options at various price points. Remember you can use them year after year and really all summer long, so it’s good to make that investment. Flowers can be expensive, so when it comes to casual events we can keep it simple. Potted plants down the center of the table is a great way to keep it cost-effective. Plus they’ll hold up for hours (even in the hot sun for an outdoor bbq) and will stay gorgeous long after your event. You can make simple hole-punched name cards tied to flags.Flag pinwheels standing up in a tall container make for a whimsical centerpiece! When used outside or on a porch, the breeze makes them spin! This idea would also make for a sweet kids table.If decorating boldly in red, white and blue is not your thing, why not go for something a bit more nautical or beachy? Blue cups, patterned plates & napkins. Ratan chargers. Pretty white flowers in a vase makes a nice centerpiece. A “pop” of red somewhere like a bowl of strawberries adds a nice touch!
Here’s to many beautiful gatherings this July!
