Tablescapes: Summer Soirées

If the kitchen is the heart of a home, then the dining room is its soul. More than just a place to dine, it’s a place to gather, to connect, to celebrate and to share. Rather than wait for a holiday or a birthday to gather with our loved ones – we believe in celebrating these small moments everyday. In our ongoing “Elevate the Everyday Tablescape” series, we spotlight simple ways to make a big impression in the dining room, and help transform your everyday meals into memories.

This summer, embrace eclecticism. In a season packed with holiday travels and proliferating parties, there’s no better time to slow down, gather loved ones, and share in a spontaneous midsummer soirée. Eschew the traditional table decor for accessories that accent the essence of the season. Balmy evenings flecked with turquoise waters and smoke-tinted hurricanes in blue hues to match from Belgian glassblower Henry Dean. Long days crowned by golden sunsets, saturated in the sublime, such as Matilda Goad‘s metal-trimmed rainbow spectrum tray. A distinctly patterned Les Ottomans’ platter hand painted by artisans in India, bold and playful like the sun, placed as the central accent of the set up. The unexpected table is a modern fusion of the precious and the playful. But most importantly, it’s as memorable as the moment.
