Quick And Easy Summer Al Fresco Tablescape Ideas

I’m thrilled to be teaming up with 19 talented bloggers to share Summer Al Fresco Tablescape Ideas with you! 

For my Summer Al Fresco tablescape, I used pretty sea shell dishes that I found at my favorite thrift store. You will not believe the price-4 for$1! Yup-you read that right.

Can you believe it? That is why I love thrift store shopping.

This was my first time setting an al fresco tablescape and I will admit that when Chloe from Celebrate & Decorate said the theme for this blog hop, I had to google “al fresco”.

Please tell me I’m not the only one? I am so thankful to have met Chloe recently at a blogging conference in Charleston. Here is a picture:

She is just as sweet as she is in her Facebook lives! Unfortunately the weather in New England has been awful all week. Not only has it been seriously humid, but we have been having thunderstorms off and on all week so I didn’t get to add the lights and a few other things I wanted.

In fact, I barely set this up and it down poured. But thankfully I had taken a few photos just in time.

I kept it very simple and love the soft colors of the sea shell dishes. Just a few shells were added to the pearly white chargers and also tied to the linen napkins with bakers twine.

The coral colors really pop against the neutral tablecloth. A metallic rose mason jar holds daisies snipped from my yard. I love the simplicity of this tablescape and it seems appropriate for a casual Summer dinner.

One thing I always say with decorating a table is, it doesn’t have to cost a lot or take a ton of pieces to set a pretty table. A nice tablecloth, dishes and fresh flowers are really all you need.

I will say I have a thing for linen napkins too! You can find great ones reasonably priced at Homegoods.
