Summer TableSetting Ideas

Striped Straws

Summer Entertaining is meant to be fun and cheery so I love incorporating lots of bright details into my tables to really make them really pop! So that I have some fresh ideas in mind come June, I decided to compile a list of my favorite Table Setting Details so I remember to implement them into my upcoming Summer Parties. I hope these inspire you to bring color in new ways to your tables as well!

Summer Table Setting Ideas:

Starting with something incredibly simple, I love using bright green lime wedges as a garnish for specialty cocktails or for chilled Pellegrino. (See my recipe for Coconut Water & Muddled Strawberries Cocktails here.)

Flavored water is delicious and refreshing to serve at any summer party, so I love making mine with ripe lemons in a big clear glass pitcher. The yellow really adds something special to a plain jane drink station!

Bright cocktail napkins are a must at any summer soiree. I love how C. Wonder sells packs of paper monograms napkins so you can add that personal touch to your Summer BBQ!

Adding more color to the table while fulfilling guests’ sweet tooth is definitely a double win in my guests’ book! I put out small white bowls and fill them with anything from Jelly Beans to Hot Tomales and place them at each guests seat!

If you want to invest in one key table setting item this summer, make it bright colored or printed linen napkins. They can match back to any natural colored placemats, but will instantly give your table that Summer lift!

I love using straws in the summer time. Whether they are placed on display on your bar cart, or served at the table in water glasses, they are always a crowd pleaser (and incredibly popular pics for instagram!)!

Lastly, choosing an array of colored vases with delicate summer flowers {like daisies} is the final touch you need to finish off a stunning summer table. I picked up an assortment at West Elm in varying heights and colors! {The Waterscape Collection is incredibly cute!}
