I love summer entertaining.  The produce is at it’s best, the weather is great, and best of all those so many pretty flowers!  We picked some flowers from our garden for this pretty summer tablescape.  This neutral loving girl, got swept up with gorgeous colourful summer blooms and embraced all the colour of the season.

The flowers are all from our garden, and it was so much mixing and matching them, picking them, and arranging them.  The flowers really were the inspiration for the whole table.

I used some pretty little vintage jars and made simple groupings of blooms.

For our flowers we used a combination of zinnias, cosmos, bachelor’s buttons, black eyes susans, and cone flowers that where all blooming in the garden.

They look so pretty and special under these glass cloches.    I just shopped my house and used a few that I already had.

Mixing and matching the different sizes of cloches was really fun too, and added interest to the table.

For the place settings, I used my everyday white dishes, but dressed it up a little with pretty gold cutlery and glasses for this summer tablescape.

The simple paper napkins make entertaining easy and add a little more colour and pattern.

We grew these from seed, they’re just an annual and so easy to grow.  And the more you pick them the more they bloom, so I’m picking away and enjoying them inside.
