Inspirational tables to brighten up your day!
In my opinion, summer is the perfect season to go all out with your tablescapes. I don’t know if it’s the heat or all the sunny days or what, but something about summer just makes me want to set the boldest, most eye-catching tables ever!
That means a lot coming from me, because you all know that I’m a HUGE fan of more simple (and muted) scapes. But right now I’m loving the look of graphic prints and colors for a fun little summer fête! And I hope you enjoy them as much as I do because this article is all about my bold table inspo faves!
Yet another citrus scape
Okay, I know my citrus obsession is getting out of hand BUT PMQ for Two is probably one my favorite sources for bright, bubbly, and super fun scaping inspiration, and I just had to include this cheery summer table in my list! Seriously, her eclectic style is RIGHT up my alley, and her finished tables always look so effortless and chic. Case in point? This gorgeously bright summer table that’s perfect for a Sunday (or any day) brunch.
See the sea-scape
Oh my, this nautical-and-flag inspired scape is gorgeous! I’m loving all the amazing primary colors and the bold, graphic prints—everything just screams “summer” to me! And how cute is the DIY painted bamboo cutlery that gives such a great beach picnic vibe to the entire table?
A fun brunch party
I don’t know if it’s just me, but this entire table reminds me of the Barbies I had as a kid (Hawaiian Fun, anyone?) and needless to say, I AM IN LOVE! All the bright, neon colors pop so well against each other, and those pink plastic flutes are a dream! While I’m definitely a huge fan of sophisticated glassware, plastic is so cheap and easy to store… plus I won’t have to worry about losing—or breaking—a few.
How lovely is this ultra-colorful scape? And who knew that a cobalt blue table runner would be the perfect backdrop for amazingly bold colors? This gorgeous table may just convince me to stray away from my usual neutral color schemes.
Tone it down
… Or maybe not. This is a beautiful example of how to set a graphic table without overloading your decor with colors (and prints)! The teal linens look so soft and romantic, and they’re muted enough to really let the orange and blush tones shine. And speaking of tones, how eye-catching is that monochromatic centerpiece with its clean lines and shapes?
