I am so happy to once again be gathering 20 talented table stylists. Each of these bloggers will be sharing their interpretation of a Summer Tablescape! I do hope you will take a few minutes to visit each of the participants. All of these ladies have put so much time, expense and work into styling their prettiest Summer tablescapes.
Living in Florida, a tropical tablescape is a perfect fit! Palmettos are grow like weeds in every little space they can take ahold. Therefore an early morning stroll turned into foliage gathering session for this summer tablescape.
Napkin rings that resemble oversized chrysanthemum blooms were chosen to tuck layers of green and brown napkins into.
At each end of the table large over-sized green jars held an assortment of tropical leaves including monstera, palm, elephant ear and palmetto.
Driftwood styled chargers sat upon Monstera leaf placemats. I topped the chargers with tropical foliage print dinner plates. Clear salad plates added another layer without covering the pattern of the the foliage.
Bamboo handle flatware was the obvious choice for this tropical inspired tablescape.
Stemware was nixed in favor of these casual rattan wrapped glassware. A wine bucket that coordinates with the set was placed at the center of the table for celebratory Champagne.
A palm printed tray (actually made as an art piece to hang on the wall) served as a centerpiece. This protected the table beneath the ice bucket for champagne and bottles of sparkling water. To further enhance the tropical feel, I added a coconut, a pineapple and a mango.
My farmhouse table is big enough to seat ten, so eight was no problem for this dinner party.
Hey, who took the Champagne out of my bucket?!
The sideboard carried through my theme with mismatched bottles of different tropical leaves tucked between my coastal accent pieces.
