Summer Place Settings

The summer holidays are on their way and that means lots of entertaining and I love these summer place settings from ballarddesigns.com so I thought I would share them with you!

Summer just seems to be the perfect time to entertain. The flowers are in bloom, maybe your kitchen garden is overflowing, and you can send the kids out into the backyard to play. Whenever we’re entertaining, we like to add a little flourish to the table to make guests feel extra special. Even if you’re having a casual meal, a little forethought a few days in advance is all you need. Here are some of our favourite summer place setting ideas that feel bright, festive, and simple enough to pull together on busy days.We brought together apricot and robin's egg blue for a light and happy color palette that beautifully complements colorful summer cooking.

We love a stripe, but our favorite part of this table runner is the fact that it's made from Sunbrella fabric, so it's hardwearing, fade resistant, and can stand up to serious spills. Not let's get cooking!
