Tablescape Thursday: Happy First Day of Summer

Happy first day of summer, friends! In honor of this glorious day, I decided to set a table for dinner outside in the bright, beautiful sunshine. Summer is a favorite time of year for me. The days are longer, I get to spend more time outdoors, and I just love the feel of the warm sunshine on my skin.

For today’s tablescape, bright yellow lemons are the theme. A recent purchase of a tablecloth at HomeGoods was my inspiration.


The placesettings are simple with green straw placemats, Mikasa English Countryside plates, Onieda flatware, and American Fostoria glasses. Bright yellow napkins add an additional pop of color and tie back to the lemon theme.

The centerpiece is made up of a potted orchid and bowls of lemons.



Thanks for stopping by, sweet friends! Monday, I will be joining a wonderful group of bloggers to bring you our patriotic tables. Tuesday, I will be on another blog tour to bring you our patriotic porches. I hope that you all have a very happy Thursday and a wonderful weekend!
