Once I actually decide on dining chairs (still haven’t, time is TICKING) I plan on entertaining a lot more than I have. And since my patio renovation is about to break ground (YAY) I may actually be having dinner parties outside sooner than inside! I love eating outside- I don’t care as much what the food is as long as the ambiance is great and there is a cool summer breeze. When I saw this image from Aerin Lauder I felt totally inspired to set a table:
I love the colors and the mix of fancy and casual elements on the table. And then I went in search of other green and blue inspired tables…
And here’s my table design inspired by Aerin’s spring table…..
1. William Yeoward Claire crystal (my mom has this and it’s SO gorgeous) 2. Wisteria vases 3. White tulip bouquets 4. Haviland’s Jardin Francaise china 5. bamboo flatware (cheaper version HERE) 6. Linen monogrammed napkin 7. Centerpiece brass accents 8. Woven charger 9. Juliska bamboo china (mix in with the above) 10. Ikat fabric (have a seamstress whip you up a tablecloth!)
