Woven & Wonderful

Get your summer table popping with color and texture to boot!

With so many hours of evening summer sun, we are taking advantage of the day’s last rays and moving our dinners outside. Lit by candles and bistro bulbs alike, these backyard fêtes are colorful affairs grounded by tablescapes as cheerful and colorful as the company.

Taking our color cues from far-flung color destinations like Amalfi, Mexico City, and Santorini, we are spicing up our summer soirees with beautiful shades of yellow, orange, and pink. So, get inspired and set a date. You have a party to plan!

Richly Romantic

If a trip to Positano is not on your roster this summer, bring the colorful magic of its bougainvillea bursting with pink buds atop walls of rich ochre to your home with a decadent summer dinner full of colors that delight.

Lay down a colorful tablecloth in a fun hue or cheery pattern—we’re loving Josef Hoffman prints for their playfulness and bold colors. Taking notes from the the hues on display, layer our Woven Fringe Placemats on top for a sustainable, statement-making base (Fun fact: These pieces are handmade of sustainably sourced recycled twine).

Top your placemats with delicate dishes in shades of blue and white (Royal Copenhagen anyone?) for an unexpected change in scale and color. Simple flatware set atop linen napkins with hems in a shocking pink keep things playful and make room for simple drinking glasses.

For a gorgeous, sustainable centerpiece, pile this season’s citrus and other ripe fruits in the center of the table and place a piece on every plate for a pop of color and a tasty after dinner treat.

Fiesta Fantastic

Needing a tablescape that feels fresh and fun day to night? Look no further than Mexico City for color and pattern inspiration a-plenty. Our high-impact setting works perfectly for a weekend brunch, al fresco luncheon, or sizzling evening soiree. Whip up a pitcher of sangria or margaritas, dishes of homemade salsa and guacamole, and let us show you the rest!

Starting with a colorful, checked tablecloth, set out our Woven Rattan Placemats—we chose pink to complement the tablecloth’s hues—and top them with zesty, glazed plates. Place a carnation or rose on each plate for a bit of drama or tie up colorful napkins with our beaded Floral Napkin Rings for sweet floral touches.

As a final, fun touch, serve ice-cold Topo Chico waters and margaritas atop our Woven Fringe Coasters. Salud!

Thank you @shoptheavenue for creating this beautiful table setting.

Colorfully Complementary

Like Santorini at sunset, this summery tablescape comes alive with fresh hues of orange and blue. It’s a perfect color pairing for breezy brunches and simple suppers. We combined a delicate, floral tablecloth with our orange Woven Rattan Placemats to create an eye-catching base for each place setting.

Topped with vividly colored, floral plates, white linen napkins, and bamboo-stemmed flatware, this tablescape balances petite prints and details with enough bold colors and textures to entertain the eye. Bud vases filled with loose bunches of orange blooms and bowls of fresh peaches continue the color story down the table while keeping things simple and chic.
