Summer Table

I’ve been doing a little summer entertaining, and thought you might like my modern, pink, summery table.

I started with a light pink table runner on the dark wood, and then used my everyday white plates. I love these square side plates, and layered them with a simple pink cotton napkin. I love the pink glasses.

The centre piece is three frosted glass square vases, repeating the square from the side plate, filled with simple green hydrangea from my garden. On either side are hurricane vases with pink pillar candles.

I love the simplicity and clean lines, mixed with a fun colour like pink. This table made a great backdrop for a relaxed summer feast.

  2. Gorgeous! I love pink, so I am oohing and aaahing here. Can you tell me where you got those pink glasses? I’ve been looking for some.

  3. Hi Barbara, I got the glasses about 8 years ago, at a store that closed down, called the Home Store. Glad you like them, hope you can find them too.

  4. I’m running around in a frenzied circle and doing the happy dance! I LOVE pink and green!!! You have done a wonderful job here! The paleness of the pink paired with the vivid green is really great! Have a fabulous weekend!

  5. What an elegant table. The hydrangeas are gorgeous! And I love that color combination!
    Hope you have a great weekend!

  6. I remember vividly the day that we unpacked those pink dishes and I attempted to cram them into your hutch – I was foolish enough to question whether they would be used – who actually uses pink dishes? Once again, you have opened my eyes my friend. Now I know that everyone needs pink dishes. Perhaps even a full set of 12.
    missing you

  7. I love the pink dishes, especially with the green hydrangeas. Very chic in the more modern vases!
