This no fuss late summer tablescape comes together in a flash. I used bright pops of color for visual impact and warmth.
I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t always style a table for regular weeknight meals. However, I know that even the simplest tablescape can take the most humble meal to another level of enjoyment. Also, using minimal dinnerware leaves lots of room on the table if you want to serve the meal family style. When I look back on family meals when our kids were little this is something I wish I had done. Luckily it’s something that most of our grandchildren will grow up being comfortable with.
My no-fuss late summer tablescape starts with a plain and simple ivory tablecloth.
I used my dollar store cylinder vases and inserted white paper to hide the stems. Each one holds two-toned pink blooms that also help liven up the table.
Alongside each vase, I place a white taper in a small clear holder.
The small stack begins with hot pink woven placemats. The open weave of the placemats lends a light airiness that isn’t weighed down by their deep hue.
In keeping with the minimalist theme, I used a round white dinner plate and a beige hobnail salad plate with a simple folded hot pink napkin.
To finish the stack, I used silver flatware with a rose motif on the handles.
A plain stemmed water goblet is the only drinkware.
Optional Tips for This No Fuss Late Summer Tablescape
- Opt for a bare table or just a simple runner
- Choose between a tablecloth or placemats
- Combine paper and or plastic ware with regular dishes
- To pare down the centerpiece, place pillar candles inside the cylinder vases
