Happy Thursday, dear and sweet friends. It is time for another alfresco summer tablescape. This summer, I have really enjoyed creating tablescapes outdoors. Any excuse to go outside and play with dishes and flowers is a good one to me! Won’t you join me for a little lunch on this beautiful summer day?
I found this colorful tablecloth on a recent trip to Homegoods knowing that it would be perfect for a summer tablescape.
Each placesetting is composed of a navy straw placemat, red and white polka dot dinner plate, and navy blue floral salad plate. Blue goblets and navy and white napkins with red flowers round out the look.
I have an abundance of variegated coleus in my flower beds so I added some of the stalks to grocery store flowers that I arranged in a white pitcher.
Thank you for taking the time to visit with me and for your kind comments. Your visits and comments mean so much to me! Next Tuesday, I am excited to be joining a wonderful group of bloggers to bring your our late summer home tours. Many will be sharing how they transition into fall. I hope that you all have a very blessed and happy day, dear friends!

Shannon, your garden is so inviting. I would love to sit in the shade at your table and just admire the surroundings. Love the HG tablecloth and your red and white seat cushions are lovely. I have red and white polka dot dinnerware but never thought to put bright blue with it. Really pretty.

Shannon, I’ve really enjoyed all of these al fresco tablescapes! Of course, your beautiful gardens provide the perfect backdrop!! The navy salad plates really pop with the colorful tablecloth. And thank you for the idea of using coleus in my flower arrangements. Our daughter’s baby shower is this weekend and I’m going to use some of my coleus as filler, too! Have a great weekend! Zenda
Thank you so much, Zenda! How fun to be hosting a baby shower! I know that you must be so excited for your new grandbaby to arrive! Happy Sunday, sweet friend!
Such a cheerful summer table – just begging several friends to sit down and enjoy the afternoon!!!
Love you table!!!
Thank you so much, Ann! I hope that you have a wonderful Sunday!
Beautiful! The tablecloth really made a lovely backdrop. Love the polka dot layered with the blue and white floral dishes. They created a fun and colorful design on the tablecloth. All this nestled in your backyard with the stone wall and greenery is wonderful!
Thank you so much, Liz! I hope that you have a wonderful week!!!
