Create a Simple Lemon Tablescape for two in your own outdoor setting. Dining al fresco is always fun when the weather is perfect. Even better when you can create a little romantic soiree at home with your sweetheart.
My Lemon Tablescape is part of the Late Summer Tablescape Tour hosted by Chloe of Celebrate & Decorate. Join me along with 22 more talented ladies who love to set a beautiful table for entertaining. You can find all of them at the bottom of this post. Please give yourself the pleasure of peeping in on their decor.
What could be better or more fun than pint size Mason jars filled with lemon infused cold water for our later summer soiree on the back porch.
Hubby and I are apt to sit and talk for hours as the sun sets so I brought the pitcher of water out to our little romantic table.
Milk glass is growing on me. I have begun to admire it when we go antiquing. It can be expensive so last year I made a set of Faux Hobnail vases and you can too! See the easy tutorial here.
The little hobnail candy dish is an antique store find. It’s just perfect to hold our lemon drops for long converstions on the back porch. I used it during the Easter season to display my DIY Blue and White Easter Eggs and the dish really made the blue colors pop.
Apparently I’m having a love affair with Melamine. I have to pick it up to touch and admire it when I’m out shopping. Late last summer I found these cute pink and yellow lemon theme Melamine dishes on clearance at Marshall’s. Score for me because they were less than $3 for the set!
My lemon tablescape plate stack is layered with a plain bright yellow round placemat which is topped with a wood look charger. Both are from the At Home Store. Then those fabulous Lemon yellow and pink Melamine dishes with the dinner plate first followed by the salad plate. The linen napkins are a Home Goods find on clearance of course!
There are two tablecloths being used. The white lace on top has a pretty cut pattern so I placed a yellow tablecloth underneath to show through. My vision was simple and a little romantic. I didn’t want too much yellow which might be overwhelming.
Grocery store flowers are always fun for creating a little romance in a flower vase.
Our centerpiece is off center because we wanted our place settings to be next to one another for intimate conversation.
You simply cannot have a summer romantic dinner al fresco without dessert. Lemon bars dusted with powdered sugar helped us to linger at the table just a little while longer.
Keep Scrolling and treat yourself to these gorgeous Summer Tablescape Ideas. Be sure to save your favorites to Pinterest and share them on Facebook for your friends to enjoy also!
