I love the Summer! The warmth, the sun, the longer days….what’s not to love? Well, the bugs… Anywho, I love the easy and casual feel of summer days where you don’t really have anything planned. I love summer food, summer holidays, and summer entertaining. I created an easy “undone” summer tablescape for that casual summer feel. Take a look!
An Easy Summer Tablescape
I love a beautiful tablescape. But sometimes, they can feel a little formal and not real, ya know? Don’t get me wrong, I love those beautiful perfectly styled tablescapes. I think they look absolutely amazing and I wish I could incorporate something like that in my home. We don’t have a separate Dining Room, so this table is used every day for all our meals. So I want something that I can leave on my table and it not be in the way of our everyday eating activities. Let’s break it down.
- A large cutting board as my base
- Differing heights of vases/vessels
- Free greenery and flowers from my yard
- Wood pedestal and mortar with flags
- Soft linen dish towel for texture
- Utensils (plastic) in mason jar
- Everyday Placemats
- Everyday Dishes and Glasses
Moveable and Thrifty
I love how everything is contained to this one board. Well, except for the plates and placemats. So, if we need it out of the way, I can either remove it from the table easily or push it out of the way. We use the plates, placemats, and glasses every day. It’s nice to be able to grab something that’s easily accessible.
I absolutely love a good deal! We’ve established that before….and what’s better than free? All the greenery and flowers are from my yard. The greenery is from our forsythia bush and the yellow flowers are daylilies. They don’t last very long, hence the name, but the greenery has lasted for weeks! I think next I’m going to cut some flowers from my garden and maybe “trim” some trees in the pasture. 😉
Eat in Kitchen Dining
We opted out of a separate Dining Room in this home. We felt it may be wasted space and when you’re building all square footage counts towards the price. So it’s important to me to have a space that looks nice and put together but is easily accessible for my family to use for our daily meals. Our table is large (built by my husband #handyAndy), so we can have a simple tablescape and then move/push it out of the way when needed.
