Barbecue fun, garden party, or cozy afternoon coffee in the apartment or outdoors: when properly presented, your delicacies taste twice as good. The eye is particularly fond of eating in a moody atmosphere. You can create an atmospheric ambiance with summer table decorations, such as flower stalks, nicely arranged, and tableware in bold colors. Our ideas ensure a great look on your summer table.
When summer is our guest, we prefer to eat outside. Regardless of whether it is indoors or outdoors: It is not just what is on the (garden) table that counts, but also how you put it in the limelight. Nature will help you with the most beautiful motifs and play of colors. And that’s exactly what forms the basis for summer table decorations. So work with strong blue, yellow, orange, light green, or pink and fruity patterns. Natural materials go well with this. Linen, glass, bamboo, ceramic, or stone belong on every summer table. If you now arrange airy, light accessories, you have the perfect summer look. Here come our decorating ideas:
The Basics: Dishes and Glasses
Crockery in summery colors or with typical summer fruits, such as lemons or oranges, is ideal for setting your table in summer. Choose rustic cutlery with a wooden handle; you are doing everything right. Cutlery in gold rose, or black is also trendy. Also possible: classic silver. Your decoration for the summer looks very stylish if you coordinate the whole thing with your tablecloth. Are plates and cups particularly gaudy? Then a calm fabric color is good. On the other hand, white tableware can be highlighted with bright yellow, orange, or green cloth napkins. Combine it with a tablecloth printed with yellow lemons, oranges, or apples, and a good mood is inevitable.
A serving tray with colorful glasses and a water carafe sets nice accents. Alternatively, you can set up shapely glass vases for the flower arrangements. With glass, you decorate just right in summer.
Summer Decoration on The Table
Tablecloths and placemats for summer table decorations are made from natural materials, such as coarse cotton or raffia and sisal. Linen napkins are tied with a thick cord and look very inviting. Slate slabs are an eye-catcher, on which you can arrange pillar candles and lanterns for atmospheric light in the evening. Take up motifs from nature and place small terracotta pots with palm, almond, or olive trees on or next to the summer table. Meadow flowers, herbs, and flowering branches of nature are also doing well.
Would you like a personal touch? A slate with a hand-lettered message or with the evening menu welcomes your guests appropriately. Beautiful place cards complete the individual approach.
A cake stand with fruit is a wonderful snack in between, and it is also a pretty eye-catcher.
You can hang lanterns in cheerful colors or decorations with fairy lights over the table.
Flower Greetings on The Table
A must-have on every summer table is flower decorations in vases, glasses, or empty glass bottles. Fresh cut flowers in colored vases, such as daisies, dahlias, and sunflowers, are the first choice. If you like it extra classy, choose roses. A colorful bouquet of meadow flowers, on the other hand, emphasizes the vintage look. Sweet peas, star umbels, peonies, and feathers look great in ceramic vases. Also pretty: attach individual styles to small, simple lanterns.
Summer, Sun, Sunshine: The “Motto” Festival Table
Motto tables are popular with your guests and make table decorations easier for you in summer. We have summarized the most beautiful four:
Maritime. The colors white, blue, red, and many stripes bring special coastal greetings to your table. To do this, decorate wood, ropes, and nets. Placemats and napkins are also borrowed from the sea with beach motifs. Small shells and starfish in simple glasses, as well as lighthouses and mini anchors, let Sylt chic and beach house feeling move in with you.
The Mediterranean. Create an uncomplicated ambiance for your dinner invitation. The intense colors and scents of the Mediterranean countries determine the table decorations, especially outside: deep blue, juicy olive green, and calm earth tones. The patterns are Greek-striped or checkered like in living in the Italian style. Also good: citrus fruits and painted ceramics. Lavender exudes its wonderful aroma in small, simple vases.
Pool party. The focus here is on a good mood and tropical outdoor accessories. Lively glasses, funny drinking straws, stirring sticks with flamingo or pineapple attachments, and rubber animals on the exotic patterned tablecloth – it can’t be colorful and crazy enough on this summer table. A bowl with tropical fruits and a stylish ice cube tray underlines the motto: Let’s have a cool party!
Country house. This style is dominated by the subtle colors we know and love from a summer meadow. The accessories are also delicate and playful. Seagrass and jute placemats cover a white wooden table. Bowls, boards, jugs, and baskets are made of light-colored wood, zinc, or wire. In addition, flowers, flowers, flowers, especially astrantia, white lisianthus, light blue asters, pink oleanders, or spinsters in the green.
