Lemon Tablescape For Two
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.

Shirley, I love the lemon tablescape theme, so very pretty. Layering the tablecloths makes a perfect foundation for your lovely plate stack, who doesn’t love melamine?!! Lemon bars are a favorite treat and yours look delicious. It has been a pleasure blog hopping with you.
There is nothing more summer than lemon. Your tablescape is so pretty, and something I would actually do as its for two people. Beautiful job.

Aren’t all of the melamine plates they have come out with so fun! Yours are especially cute, with the paper plate look to them. Lemons are such a wonderful fruit, pattern, them, decoration to celebrate with in the summertime, and the addition of the lemon drops is such a cute addition! Thank you so much for sharing your table styling talents and joining in our hop!
Sunny and romantic is what comes to mind when I see this lovely outdoor tablescape. I love the color yellow and small hints of it can add so much cheer without being over powering. Your pink and yellow lemon plates are absolutely a great find. I love how you used a yellow tablecloth under you white cut out lace tablecloth for added color. Gosh, I could use one of those delicious lemon bars too. A beautiful setting for a summer afternoon.
Your lemony table is so cheerful and summery! Your lemon bars look scrumptious, too! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction
Since Mr Buzz and I empty nesters who also enjoy sitting out on our covered porch, I should make an effort to set a fun table just for the two of us more often. Your sunny, refreshing table has motivated to do just that, for the rest of what’s left of summer. I love, love those fab dishes and am now craving a lemon bar! Gonna have to bake some now too — blaming you for the extra calories!
Love your lemon theme. The plates are lovely, especially with the pink showing through. How wonderful your faux hobnail vase is. The tutorial is quite easy. Thank you for sharing. The mason jars with your twine and straw is a wonderful addition. I do love adding a lemon or cucumber to my water. The best is the lemon bars, making us all want one. A pleasure to join on on this blog hop.
I love the burst of sunshine on this table! The pink and yellow plates caught my eye right away and hurray for melamine. It’s become a favorite of mine also for color and variety. I’m drooling over the lemon bars and thinks it’s time a bake a batch.
Shirley, you are a girl after my own heart with that lemon alfresco service. I buy lemons and drink lemon water year-round, so that automatically appealed to me. Of course, any food with lemon also piques my interest, it’s so refreshing and adds such brightness to even soups in winter. Your table is equally refreshing.
What a cute alternative to hobnail! I checked out your tutorial – you sure could’ve fooled me to thinking it was the real deal!
Happy to be in your company this week.
Shirley, So nice to meet you! I can tell you are a happy person to style a happy and cheerful lemon yellow tablecape. I love hobnail and have a small collection. Your tutorial for faux hobnail was very interesting.
Your lemon squares look delicious and your al fresco setting is so pretty.
Oh I can just about taste those lemon bars! The lemon water jars look so cool and refreshing, they bring you right to the table where you want to sit and linger! I love all the cute melamine plates available these days, they are irresistible and so perfect for alfresco dining…Lemon love!
Your lemon table for two is perfect for summer. Your lemon plates along with the other yellow and white accents on the table make a pretty setting for enjoying a dinner with your husband. Your lemon squares made my mouth water. That’s one of my favorite desserts!
