Set Sail for Summer Tablescape
Summer temperatures have arrived here in Florida which has me ready to start setting a fun summer tablescape. When I finished taking down all of the nautical decor in my granddaughters’ room, I thought this would be the perfect time to style a nautical table.
Pioneer Woman red dinner plates are topped with white salad plates and nautical themed appetizer plates set the basics for my summer table.
At each end of the table I added an extra placemat and a few nautical accents. A glass float, a buoy and a monkey’s fist knot at one end and a pair of my own DIY driftwood sailboats on the other.
Wooden sailboat garlands discovered on sale last year at Target were perfect for setting up a fleet of tiny boats for a centerpiece. The nautical flag garlands also came from Target.
I had no idea when I selected this chandelier that it would be such a creative spot for me to add decor above my table like I did with the wisteria for my springtime tablescape or these nautical flags. I always love when a table stylist adds a touch of decor to the chairs and these flags that had been on the walls in my nautical nursery.
