‘Tis the season for outdoor entertaining! Seriously, this is the part of summer that I look forward to all year long. Once the kids are out of school and the evenings magically turn balmy and breezy, we jump at the chance to enjoy our dinners in the backyard. Especially with a group of our closest friends. Maybe it’s the longer days, or perhaps it’s the slowing of busy schedules, but something about these summer nights always sets me at ease and puts a huge smile on my face. And, honestly, how could it not? Good food, great people, a beautifully set table…it’s the best, am I right?
To gear up for the summer entertaining season, I’ve gathered up a few swoon-worthy table settings that have me daydreaming about future get togethers and parties. If you, too, are needing some inspiration keep reading below…

I’m all about this mix of copper and bright greenery. That giant leaf! It’s simple and elegant, yet utterly eye-catching.
Can you imagine receiving an invitation to this dinner party?? The low table, the piled moroccan rugs, the giant pillows…it’s a recipe for the most relaxing evening ever. Count me in.

Beautiful succulents and white pillar candles — both are affordable and easy to find! I love a sophisticated table setting that doesn’t break the bank. Pretty glassware adds the perfect finishing touch.

So, the flowers are absolutely gorgeous but I am dying over the combination of the natural fiber placemats with white linens and those adorable little air plants. Totally stealing this.

If only every dinner party could be this lovely. It’s a design trifecta of white cakes stands, industrial lanterns, and comfy ottomans. All with a beautiful string of al fresco lights hanging from above. Truly, a little slice of heaven.
