Simple Summer Tablescape

Pollie's Place Simple Summer Tablescape

Summer is the best time of the year to entertain, but that does not mean setting a great table has to be a lot of work. My goal is to set a simple summer tablescape that can easily be added to for different occasions and holidays. Summer, to me, is all about "easy!" My favorite way to tablescape in the summer is to use white dishes with natural accents. I also try to buy accent pieces that are versatile and can be used for multiple seasons. Mixing neutral shades with a few floral accents is the perfect way to bring timeless elegance to your summer table. Plus, it looks superbly fresh and delightful.

For this simple summer tablescape, I've chosen a neutral color palette. The timeless look of ivory, tan, white, beige, and grey will never go out of style. Here, I started with the Nubby Table Runner from Pottery Barn. It is woven by hand from purely natural fibers and brings warm style to every meal. Also, how amazing are these lemon leaves placemats from Pier 1! They are definitely a conversation starter and make the table seem fresher and more alive. The greenery really pops against the neutral color palette.

I fell in love with these Magnolia Napkin Rings and Gratitude Script Napkins from Pier 1. The wood chargers are from Bed, Bath, and Beyond and the elegant scalloped plates are from Target. I might have a little obsession with white dishes! There is nothing more practical as a white dinner plate for both entertaining and every day use. Have you ever noticed how your food looks served on a white plate verses a dark plate or one with patterns? {Give me "all the white dishes!" Who is with me?}

Sharing a few more photos of the dining room below. For me, the "icing on the cake" for this room is the Calhoun 6-light Candle Chandelier. I highly recommend this chandelier, whether, your style is farmhouse or french country. It's beautiful and unique with a touch of rustic charm. You can use Candelabra Bulbs or Edison Bulbs, as I have here.

Perfect Summer Dress

Happy Summer friends! I'm so excited to share with you the perfect dress for summer! I absolutely adore this dress! I fell in love with it's feminine floral pattern and I knew I had to try it on. The designer is Maggy London and it's called, "Fit & Flare." A pastel garden print dials up the charm for this jewel-neck day dress tailored from lustrous stretch-woven sateen. It's tank sleeves and fit and flared skirt compliment any body type. Trust me when I tell you that the flared skirt will make you want to do twirls like when you were a little girl.

Don't you just love it when you put on a dress and it just make you feel good! This dress is very versatile. If you have any weddings or dressy occasions this season, I highly recommend this dress! It's also the perfect dress to wear to casual summer lunches, picnics, barbecues, etc. I love just added some pearl earrings and bracelets to dress it up, while, throwing on a blue jean jacket to dress it down.

Also, if you don't like this floral print or colors, or maybe you are more of a solid print gal, don't worry, this dress comes in a variety of colors and prints! Here, I've paired the dress with my favorite linen TOMS wedges. But, it would also look great with a pair of heels or flats. I have no doubts that you will enjoy this dress as much as I do! A beautiful dress that is also comfortable is a WIN, WIN in my book! I hope you have a great summer and don't forget to come say Hi on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest!
