Elegant Summer Tablescape

by | May 21, 2020 | Tablescapes

We’ve been making the most of our time at home by celebrating all things big and small.  As you’ve seen on Instagram, we’ve celebrated the birthday’s of my youngest and oldest daughters and our 25th anniversary.  This elegant summer tablescape is for our next occassion: My mother’s birthday!

I’ll be recreating this table again tomorrow night to celebrate my amazing mother whose birthday was Monday.  We are finally getting to see her and my father.  I’m not sure we’ve ever gone 90 days before! I am so grateful we flew last minute to Kansas City to celebrate my dad’s birthday and that I got be with my mom in Cabo for my oldest daughter’s spring break the first week of March!

Ikat Tablecloth / Wicker Placemat / Faux Bamboo Flatware / Berry and Thread Melamine Dinner Plate / Isabella Acrylic Tumbler / Ikat Napkin / Bamboo Napkin Ring / Large Blue and White Jar Centerpiece (30% off!) / Smaller Blue and White containers (also on sale) / Dining Chairs / Similar Table (All outdoor details can be found here and here)

These occasions as well as virtual soccer banquets and even just beautiful weather have been my excuse to create memories at home during this time.  My goal with Alicia Wood Lifestyle has always been to inspire others to create memories for family and friends through entertaining at home.  My easy, elegant and fun tablescapes and recipes are meant to do just that.

Green Halter Maxi Dress / Alicia Earrings with Lapis Charm / Minnie and Helena Bracelets / Ikat Tablecloth / Wicker Placemat / Faux Bamboo Flatware / Berry and Thread Melamine Dinner Plate / Isabella Acrylic Tumbler / Ikat Napkin / Bamboo Napkin Ring / Large Blue and White Jar Centerpiece (30% off!) / Smaller Blue and White containers (also on sale) / Dining Chairs / Similar Table (All outdoor details can be found here and here)

The foundation of this tablescape is the stunning blue, green and white Ikat tablecloth. It is actually a perfect mix of my mother and me! She loves green as much as I love blue! The centerpiece features some of my favorite blue and white containers that you have seen on other tablescapes here, here and here. As you know I love mixing items from indoors and using things I already own. It’s great to have the chance to use the things that you love in different ways. They are filled with beautiful blue white and green hydrangeas that I actually found at my local grocery store. It was such a lucky, happy find! They would be equally beautiful with different shades of blue or solid white hydrangeas.

Next, I layered these wicker placemats from Juliska. I love the natural elements that they lend to the table. I’ve talk to them with the Berry and Thread melamine dinner plates also from Juliska. The finishing touch is the matching Ikat napkins with my favorite bamboo napkin rings.

Green Halter Maxi Dress / Alicia Earrings with Lapis Charm / Minnie and Helena Bracelets / Berry and Thread Isabella Acrylic Pitcher / Berry and Thread Serving Tray / Ikat Tablecloth / Wicker Placemat / Faux Bamboo Flatware / Berry and Thread Melamine Dinner Plate / Isabella Acrylic Tumbler / Ikat Napkin / Bamboo Napkin Ring / Large Blue and White Jar Centerpiece (30% off!) / Smaller Blue and White containers (also on sale) / Dining Chairs / Similar Table (All outdoor details can be found here and here)

Last year Juliska introduced acrylic drinkware also in the Berry and Thread-like Isabella pattern. We have loved using their entire range: Wine Glasses, Tall Tumblers, Small Tumblers and drink pitchers. They even have a footed goblet!

I am wearing one of the new summer designs from Tuckernuck. When I posted this Kelly Green Halter Maxi Dress on the blog earlier this week and on Instagram everyone loved it! It is available currently and all sizes. It runs a tad small in the bust, so I sized up one to a small. It is a long maxi dress and I have it on with these wedges. It is plenty long for all of you beautiful tall gals!

I hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.  We are grateful for all the men and women, including many in my family, who have served our country and allow us the freedoms we have.  We’ll be remembering them this weekend.  Also, a full list of the great sales for Memorial Day is coming tomorrow!
