I had so much fun creating the tablescape this month for our monthly dinner club! We decided on a summer theme, so I thought it would be fun to do a peachy summer tablescape.
If you are coming over from Simply 2 Moms welcome! I’m so glad you are here! Wasn’t Ann and Anne Marie’s tablescape so beautiful and creative?
My inspiration for this table was the cute peach pattern melamine plates I saw at Hobby Lobby several months ago. I picked up a few of the salad plates to layer on top of my thrifted white dinner plates.
My sweet friend Shannon (aka My Little White Barn) and I had a barn sale a few weeks ago at her adorable white barn. We used my white farm table for display and it was still in the barn, so I decided it would be the perfect setting for my summer tablescape.
She also happens to have a small peach orchard in front of her house, so I was able to cut some branches to use on my table. To be perfectly honest, the peaches aren’t quite ready, so I couldn’t use real peaches for my tablescape. But fortunately, Michael’s had some very realistic artificial ones.
place settings for a peachy summer tablescape
I used a large white dinner plate, layered with a smaller white dinner plate, then topped off with my peach pattern salad plate. As I have mentioned before, I have a lot of thrifted white dinner plates I have collected over the years. I have never paid more than a couple of dollars per plate and they come in very handy when doing any tablescape.
Did you see how I used them with this simple DIY tablerunner or on my Summer Porch Tablescape?
I highly recommend starting a collection of them, if you don’t already have white dishes.
I also have thrifted clear vintage goblets that I use at most of my table settings and for entertaining. Those are also easy to find at thrift stores and estate sales. You can find lots different color goblets too. I have a set of amber ones I like to use with fall tablescapes paired with my brown transferware.
For this tablescape, I used ivory linen napkins I purchased on clearance at Arhaus several years ago, and pulled them through my woven napkin rings. The napkin rings were purchased at Target and are from the Magnolia Home line.
I finished off each place setting with gold flatware and a clear goblet.
I started with 3 rectangle woven placemats and placed them down the center of the table to create a runner. They were touching each other, with no space between, so you can’t really tell it’s not actually a table runner.
This farm table is very narrow, so I opted for a table runner and no placemats. The plates slightly overlap the table runner.
I used a large white pedestal bowl filled with peaches and a few peach leaves. This large bowl in the center of the table added some drama. I added several branches from the peach tree down the center of the table and sprinkled a few of the faux peaches along table between the leaves.
For a finishing touch to my centerpiece, I added 3 vintage brass candlesticks with ivory tapers. Candlelight adds such a nice ambiance to a dinner party.
I hope you enjoyed this tablescape idea and found some inspiration to create a peachy summer tablescape of your own! If you liked this post, be sure and subscribe to the blog so you don’t miss a thing.
