Set the table for summer with a mix of textures and colors and your beautiful tablescape will become the topic of discussion. We began with a Daffodil tablecloth from Xochi and poppy-inspired table runner from The Kitchen Company, Conway. White dinner plates from Paul Michael, Lake Village, balance the vibrant red Vietri salad plates from The Full Moon, Little Rock. We topped them off with Danic cloth napkins in navy, gathered with Marble Curry napkin rings by Xochi, also available at The Kitchen Company. Red pillows, from Ken Rash’s, Little Rock, give a punch of color to any summer table.
It’s all in the details
Blue glasses from Murphy Long Design, El Dorado. Yellow salt & pepper shakers from Cobblestone & Vine, Little Rock. Make a statement with simple flower arrangements displayed in a boldly-colored pitcher (Vietri, from Chez Weenie, Forrest City). Add serving pieces like the Arthur Court silver platter from Ragan’s Gifts, Stuttgart. When the sun goes down, light these trophy-inspired votives from The Full Moon.
When life gives you lemons…
Offer your guests fresh-squeezed lemonade (with or without a kick) in these dragonfly water glasses from Cobblestone & Vine. Embellished pitcher from Catering to You, Little Rock. Add a punch of color with Tag drink napkins (The Slaughter House, El Dorado) in a silver holder from By Invitation Only, Little Rock. The tablecloth is Florilege Saffron from Yves Delorme, Little Rock. Blue serving dish from Vesta’s, Little Rock, and metal tray with tile insets from The Now & Then Shoppe, Ft. Smith.
