Summer Table Top Ideas

Hey y'all! I can't believe it's already May! The warmer weather + the oncoming arrival of my best friend as a roommate have me dreaming of warm evenings and dinner on the patio! I just "splurged" on these placemats from Pier 1, which wasn't really a splurge because they are on clearance for less than $3 each! All the excitement made me want to round up some of my favorite dining pieces, perfect for al fresco summer nights! I picked items from three of my favorite stores: Pier 1, Target, and World Market!

Pier 1

Beaded Cream Melamine Dinner Plate Set of 4

These white plates would pair well with anything!

Brilliant-Cut Acrylic Tumblers

I love how much these look like actual glass! They feel fancy, not fragile! And they're usable year round!

Orange Colorblock Placemat

These are the ones I got! They remind me of sorbet :-)

TRANQUIL SKY BLUE MELAMINE DINNERWARE

These coastal inspired dishes would be so calming and fresh feeling!

Clarity Blue Acrylic Stemware

I think these would make for a STUNNING outdoor tablescape. and they're acrylic! Read: not fragile! Perfect for outdoors!

Woven Banana Bark Placemat

I just love the boho/eclectic feel of these!

CHINOISERIE LATTICE PERSIMMON MELAMINE DINNERWARE

Acrylic + Vintage Inspired = šŸ˜

Clarity Coral Acrylic Stemware

One more set of acrylic goblets! These are great for summer, especially if you're going for the fiesta/desert vibe

Landen Black Metal Lanterns

I think one or two of these would be so cozy on a patio table! Or by a staircase or chaise!


Target

If ya couldn't tell, I'm really excited about the Opalhouse collection ;)

MELAMINE DINNER PLATE 10.5" GREEN FLORAL - OPALHOUSEā„¢

How fun is this print?! I'd love to see it with some solid whites for a boho/coastal combo! Or for an extra bold table setting, pair it with a coral napkin! 

Melamine Salad Plate 8.4" - Opalhouseā„¢

I love the colors here! You could pair these with a bunch of different plates, maybe a white, navy, or coral!

Stoneware Mallorca Mug 24oz - Opalhouseā„¢

I got this mug last week and I am OBSESSED. It's huge! Big enough for a lot of coffee (my favorite way to drink it) and all the milk/cream I want.

ROUND STARBURST PLACEMAT - OPALHOUSEā„¢

Again with the coastal vibes. Turn your backyard into a calming oasis by channeling your inner beach house designer!

PLASTIC TUMBLER 16OZ - OPALHOUSEā„¢

These are so fun! And even adding these with some simple white plates and a blue table linen would be such a fun pop!

Plastic Margarita Glass 14oz - Opalhouseā„¢

I really love tablewear that looks like glass, but that I can't break if i knock it over. I would even use these indoors, I think.

Solar Metal Lantern Outdoor LED Light Set - Thresholdā„¢

I am absolutely on the lookout for osme solar string lights to add to my porch. They make a space feel so cozy!

Cream MacramĆ© Table Runner - Opalhouseā„¢

I love this neutral runner! It would be such a simple way to add texture to your table without changing the color scheme!

FLORAL NAPKIN (4CT) - HEARTH & HANDā„¢ WITH MAGNOLIA

I wanted to pull in something that isn't Opalhouse, and I think these napkins would be such a pretty addition to a simple white plate to give it a summer-y pop!


World Market

Indigo Melamine Dinnerware Collection

These dark blues would be a nice way to add in a dark neutral that isn't black. Plus they're so versatile! 

Blue Rocco Glassware Collection

For me, nothing says summer like a margarita. I loveeee these pitcher & glasses! 

Reactive Glaze Ceramic Citronella Candle

A stylish way to keep the mosquitos away! I love the colors in this one!

Napa Tritanā„¢ Glassware Collection

Again with the fancy looking, non-breakable glasses. These would ones I use year round. 

Wood And Metal Single Row Wind Chime

I am picky about wind chimes. So I would want to go to the store and see how these sound before I get them. But I love the modern style!

CACTUS MELAMINE DINNER PLATES SET OF 4

I like to sometimes throw in a fun trendy accent to my staples. I love these cacti and the colors are so pretty!

TEXTURED ACRYLIC BARWARE COLLECTION

A different take on the margarita pitcher. Or sweet tea or cucumber water!

Antiqued Zinc Latika Hanging Lantern

I would add some LED candles to these and hang them from a corner of your patio, or if you're roofless like me, these would be pretty in a tree!


I'm thinking that at some point I should do a post on my favorite summer recipes. What do you think?
