Hello friends. I hope you had a nice weekend. We’re in the process of doing a backyard makeover which unfortunately, it’s taking a little longer than expected. I’ve been missing my outdoor space but I hope that once it’s completed, it will have been worth the wait. In the meantime, I’m joining my friends in Styled Set Summer home Style blog tour, hosted by Lory. Today we’re sharing beautiful Summer tablescapes which I hope will inspire you. I decided to share a fun and colorful tropical fruit and floral tablescape.
I love putting together pretty tablescapes and just for fun, I filmed the process for you so you can see.
HERE is the video.
I used all kinds of citrus and tropical fruits along with grocery store flowers.
I made these delicious looking fruit salads and placed them inside a coconut. The little ‘confetti’ like garnish is actually are pieces of carnation petals that I cut.
Just because we currently don’t have an outdoor dining table doesn’t mean I can’t you our new outdoor dining dishes. These pretty dishes are from the Canvas Collection by Canadian Tire and I love that they look like just like stoneware pottery.
I used this adorable toucan side plate also by the Canvas collection. It doesn’t get more tropical than a toucan in my opinion. I actually spend some of my childhood living in Costa Rica and seeing these beautiful animals was a normal thing. 🙂
Here is a view from above…
If you watch the video you will see that even though the table seems very lush, it only took a few flowers, some faux greenery and some fruit to make it nice and full.
I think the fruit salad served in the coconuts is my favourite part.
But of course the peonies are also pretty awesome…:)
What do you think? Have you ever used outdoor dinnerware indoors? Nowadays they’re just as beautiful as regular plates don’t you think?
Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you have take a minute to visit my friend Anita at Cedar Hill Farms.
Here is the rest of today’s lineup.
