Hello friends. I hope you are having a great week so far. We all know how particularly enchanting and fun Al Fresco dining can be. As soon as the warm weather arrives, dining gets moved outdoors… You just can’t beat summer evenings for dining Alfresco. And if the we are lucky enough, we get an extended summer season.
Today I am excited to share with you photos of a table I styled last weekend for a brunch that I hosted on Sunday. I knew I wanted my table to have a more traditional and sophisticated feel so of course I decided to go with the eternal classic blue and white color palette. For me, the fun part about styling a table is in the planning and brain storming ideas about how best to set the most beautiful and inviting table. It’s a creative process!! Mixing and layering patterns and textures. And do not be afraid of mixing patterns! The secret is keeping a similar color palette.
Blue and white is a classic combo that will never go out of style, It is always fresh, timeless and surprisingly works with a rainbow of colors. Perfect example of that, is the magnificent floral arrangement that I made using fresh Forsythia from my garden in a blue and white ginger jar with striking bold patterns. For an unexpected detail, I added individual mini arrangements in purple tones at each table setting.
So many elements inspired this elegant table. Such as the gorgeous Aerin Lauder floral table in shades of blue and green, the striking Bunny Williams plates and the ultimate tabletop luxury; hemstitch monogrammed napkins from Bella Lino Linens which added exceptional sophistication and style. This table couldn’t be more perfect! Side note: Bella Lino is currently offering 20% off Set of 12 Monogrammed Napkins!
Have you fallen in love with blue and white yet?? Even if you aren’t, you might be after looking at these photos.
Have a great week.
