five of our favorite summer tablescapes

Just in time for our Diner Entre Amis (or “Dinner With Friends”) Box, we are sharing with you five of our favorite summer tablescapes by MSFB’s own curator, Sharon Santoni.

Tablescapes are an obvious and important part of entertaining. And nothing makes us happier than being able to lay a pretty table – complete with flowers and seasonal decor – for family and friends.

We hope that you find inspiration in five of these summer tablescapes!

We love this tablescape for its floral palette that employs seasonal colors and mixes different textures with natural elements.

When choosing a color scheme, try starting with a color from the dishes you’re using and build from there. It is important to have fun with it, and don’t be afraid to use nature as inspiration!

This tablescape is part of our top five because of its beautiful centerpiece, which was created with a whimsical feel and fresh flowers from Sharon’s own garden.

A centerpiece is one of the most important parts of a tablescape and is what sets the mood for the evening. It is important to not make it complicated – just get creative!

Tip: Keep your centerpieces low to the table so your guests have visibility to everyone and can easily pass items around the table.

When dressing a table, it is always a good idea to use a table runner or tablecloth. These elevate the dining experience and can easily be tossed in the wash at the end of the night for a quick and easy clean up.

We love this particular tablescape for its dreamy, navy blue color and how the vibrant flowers glow above it.

We love a layered look with dinnerware – it brings depth to a tablescape and allows you to clear plates with ease after every course.

When incorporating layers into your tablescape, start with a charger plate (this will be the largest one at the bottom). After that, just add on from there!

Don’t forget – no tablescape is complete without a few candles! It’s an easy way to create a beautiful, elegant visual accent and overall ambience.

We adore the small tealight candles in this tablescape.
