Sweet summertime! So glad it’s here. Sunny afternoons by the pool and balmy evenings under the stars are perfect opportunities to show off your party panache. And setting a beautiful tablescape is one of the ways to make your get together memorable for your guests. 


 Summer is the best time of the year to entertain, and setting a fabulous summer tablescape goes a long way in creating a relaxed and special mood! Setting a great table does not mean a lot of work! It means being smart and playing up what summer is all about! It also makes a simple family meal feel extra special and helps to spark some fun conversations with our kids. They can be so so easy and casual, and they can also be a dinner dance under the stars… and everything in between!


Whether it is a birthday party, shower, or just simply beautiful reunion, we are going to share some summer tablescape ideas for inspiration and tips for you to set a fabulous summer table for entertaining! And it is not as hard as you may think!

Smarty tips:

Don’t want to spend the summer cooking all day? Yep, me neither! The last thing we all want to do is to be a slave in the kitchen when the temperature soars!!! Think about making food that is light and can be eaten cold or at room temperature. And anything you can make ahead is a summer winner!

Keep drinks light too! Serve lots of great infused waters, iced tea, and even a fun mixed drink! Use lots of in-season fruits and herbs!
