Today’s table is pretty much my go-to styling for a summer dinner party. Bright and airy, relatively simple, pops of blues, with a hint of elegance, all captured in one.
To create this feel, it’s all “simple elegance”…. choosing pieces that have elegant details, leaving little todo in the way of styling. Thanks to Juliska’s Berry & Thread Dinnerware Collection, which features an elegant scalloped edge trimmed with Juliska’s classic thread and berry motif, your table looks elegant in an instant.
In the summertime I am all about a casual buffet or family style serving, so I like to place chargers at my seats, and then put a pile of dinner plates at the buffet station. These Berry & Thread Scallop Chargers are so gorgeous and at 13.5″ can double as an abundant dinner plate or serving platter. I also love that the Juliska Heirloom Whitewash and Blue Napkins (no longer available so I linked a similar option to shop below!!) have a scalloped edge, and combo’ed with the Bamboo Natural Napkin Rings, the table gets a coastal meets Bohemian feel!
Keeping in line with choosing elegant pieces, footed glassware is the way to go, and these Juliska Arabella Clear Footed Goblets are gorgeous for water with a lemon wedge, iced tea, or lemonade!
For the buffet, I used Juliska Serving pieces, like the Berry & Thread Whitewash Hostess Tray for cheeses to start, the Berry & Thread Whitewash Footed Fruit Bowl for salad, and Berry & Thread Whitewash Covered Casserole Dish for grilled chicken and vegetables. Then because it’s meant to be casual, I didn’t want to go over-board on my flowers. I happened to find bright blue blooms that matched my napkins perfectly, and placed those in two Harriet Fishbowl Vases down the center of the table. I also linked some fabulous faux flowers in blue hues at the bottom of this post!!
Come time to eat the Berry & Thread Ice Blue Dinner Plates compliment the chargers so nicely! The ice blue is a such a pretty color for summer too! And just an FYI, these plates are oven, microwave, dishwasher, and freezer safe!
Looking forward to entertaining with this simply elegant easy breezy setup all summer long!
