With summer just around the corner, you may be planning your next outdoor event.

Whether you’ve been dreaming of an elegant outdoor dinner party, or a fun kids’ birthday on the lawn, your table will most likely be the focal point.

Perfect Summer Tablescapes

In all corners of the world, people gather around food.  Even in mourning, we gather around food.  So, it makes perfect sense that your food table is going to be a huge focus at your next event.

Here are 5 different decorating styles that can help you create a gorgeous tablescape for your guests.

The Edible Tablescape

Let your place settings surround an artfully arranged spread of fruits and vegetables.

Edible tablescapes bring lots of beautiful color to your table. Not to mention, a lovely fruity scent.

This type of table decoration is great for brunches and lunches. One word of caution, if you’re going to use cut fruit, consider placing this table in a sunroom or screened-in porch to avoid a swarm of flies.

The Illuminated Tablescape

This is perfect for a romantic summer night or wedding reception.  Arrange white candles in a series of glass or crystal containers.

Your entire table will sparkle and illuminate your place settings.  The candlelight will provide a lovely, calming ambiance that is sure to put your guests in a relaxing mood.

The Balloon Tablescape

These are always fun to look at.  You can create a floating canopy above your table or anchor balloons to the center.

Either way, creatively arranging balloons of different sizes and colors make for an awesome tablescape.  This is also a very budget-friendly option.

Balloon tablescapes are especially fun for baby showers and birthdays.
