I have to be honest, after sitting at my desk to compose this summer table setting look, it’s going to be hard to stay working behind my computer instead of looking for an umbrella to sit underneath. I completely fell in love with these
I think any table setting (granted this is not a full table setting in the classic sence) should have a general color and material palette, but I think especially in summer it should be fun. I picked a mixture of different materials and patterns – polka dots on the glasses, organic shapes on the salt and pepper shakers, stripes on the umbrella and chequers on the table cloth – for a fun effect that personally makes me happy.
I think a table cloth with a pattern is great as well because you don’t necessarily need to iron it. I personally hate ironing and don’t mind wrinkly table cloths, but ever since someone pointed out on one of my Instagram pictures that I really should iron my table cloth it’s something I started thinking about way too much.
