Perfect for any group and food, we recommend these delectable salad bowls that also make a perfect choice for daily use. Tie the table together with a round seagrass placemat.
Create a European-inspired breakfast with a rustic bistro table. Place it in your favorite part of your outdoor space, like your garden or by the pool for a serene view. Give your outdoor breakfast a classic and relaxing feel with a set of napkins and these cereal bowls, and enjoy refreshing raspberry and mango slushies or your favorite beverage with these glasses. Take it one step further by setting up an appetizer bar for your brunch date. Arrange cubed watermelons, cucumbers, and beefsteak tomatoes drizzled with olive oil, salt, pepper, and a dash of mint.
Chic Dinner Setting Ideas
If you’re up for displaying your creativity this summer, outdoor dinners are perfect. You can never go wrong with a beautiful outdoor table setting. Start with a great rustic outdoor dining table set. If minimalistic is more your style, focus on one or two colors. Start with these neutral dinners or salad plates. Pick your serveware in classic white. Reach for a tiered server for your appetizers or for your favorite dips, which are perfect for summertime. Take the elegance a notch up with solid napkins completed with napkin rings. To complete your look, place lanterns. Like one of these clean black classics along with your dinner table for a dazzling night.
Summer table decorations can be more fun and unique. Let your table come alive by adding some planters, like our geometric ceramic planter. Fill it will yellow flowers, succulents, or potpourri to create a dreamy alfresco setting. Reach out for this delightful serving tray and elegant wine glass. Freeze your favorite wine in an ice tray and add a few cubes for your drink to last longer. Or, go for a summery treat by dropping a popsicle into your glass of wine.
