A Late Summer Blue & Green Tablescape

My thoughts are filled with ideas for fall tablescapes and seasonal decorating ideas. I know I have a couple of more tables I really want to share with you before I dive in head first to everything fall and this one of them.

You can read all about how I am Transitioning my Home to Fall, but today it is all blue and white with this lovely pop of summertime green.

I just love pairing bright greens with blue for summertime. This combination always makes me think of a preppy look. How about you?

One of my latest discoveries is Caskata. I don’t know how I happened upon these beautiful dishes. Despite my promise not to buy more dishes that I made to myself back when I redid my dish pantry, I splurged on these salad plates!

When Ardea Home reached out to me and offered to send one of their beautiful, wipeable tablecloths, I knew this was the chance to pair those plates with the perfect linens. Ardea is offering my readers a 15% off discount for your own tablecloth! See my NOTES at the bottom of this post to get the code for your discount and a chance to win your own!

In my dining room with navy blue walls and used with a beautiful chinoiserie centerpiece, this was the perfect partnership. My only disappointment was that I just could not find napkins the bright green of the chrysanthemums I found.

If you have ever hesitated to use a favorite tablecloth, one of these ‘wipeable’ cloths might be just for you!

Since my mother gave me this beautiful silver, you may have noticed I have been using it quite often when setting my tables! I used it for my Blue and White tablescape. Even though I used the same silver and the same chargers, you can see in that setting how different the look is!

The delicate Bohemian crystal mimics the delicate textures of the blooms on the salad plates and on the tablecloth. I have been adding to my dish collection, but I really have been on the hunt for new stemware! Do you have some favorites you want to share? Let me know in the comments! I always am looking for new places to shop!

In a good portion of the country, the flowers will soon be fading and gardens will be put to bed until next spring. I am looking forward to our swimming pool being finished and getting my garden back in order!

If you have a favorite lidded container like this one, don’t hesitate to use it for flowers, just lean the decorative lid up against it like I did here. Don’t you love these chrysanthemums? I always try to identify the flowers, but I couldn’t tell if these are the ‘Quebec’, Anastasia or ‘Green Mist’ variety. There may be some of each kind here.

Ana, the owner and designer at Ardea interviewed me and shared some of my tablescaping tips last week. You can read more at Ardea Home.

I have been so taken with the Caskata dish patterns. I know those of you who love to style tablescapes might be interested, so I wanted to show you some of the other gorgeous patterns they have.

I know a lot of people messaged me for how to get more of the Anthropologie dishes featured in my Sea Life Tablescape. Sadly, those are discontinued, but this ‘Lucy’ pattern from Caskata might be just the thing!

This set of Rigging Blue Mixed Canape Plates would be a great set for me to use along with my Sailing Vessel dishes used for my Old World Nautical Tablescape.

The Lobster Coupe pattern of plates and linens is tugging at me to purchase them for next summer, but until I pair down my dish collection, I just don’t know if I can take the plunge! Does anyone else have that problem, too?

  2. Very pretty Chloe, I love the way you did the flowers! Wonderful!

    1. Thanks so much Jenna! I never know what I am going to find at my local grocery store, but I was so happy with these green mums!

    1. Thank you so much Rebecca! I really appreciate you taking the time to leave me feedback!

    This is such a pretty tablescape Chloe! I have antique Blue Willow and pair that with vintage optic, etched crystal (three patterns). I really love the pop of green you added. Thank you for sharing your delightful creations with all of us!

    1. Thank you so much Sandra! I am sure the Blue Willow is beautiful with the etched crystal!

  5. Chloe, that’s such a classic and beautiful combination, blue, white and green. Love your new salads. I’ve seen Caskata pop up on my FB feed (they know we’re dish lovers). Your mother’s silver flatware and your stems elevate this look another notch, so pretty. Reorganizing the dish pantry just allowed for better visibility so you can decide what, if any, may go out if something just ‘needs’ to come in. There will always be something that grabs your stylist’s heart, I hope!

    1. Thank you so much Rita! Alas, I really do need to let go of some older things to make room for those new things that grab my heart!

  6. Chloe,
    this table is stunning and that centerpiece is amazing. I have to share on my Dirt Road Adventures because I love it so much. That will be Sunday!
