Setting the Summer Table DIY


I love finding beautiful inspiration for table settings and this one is fantastic. I have posted before about creating your own faux coral branches.

Simply spray paint knobby branches from your garden, craft stores or online in coral and/or turquoise. Manzanita branches - either faux or real work great.

Here is more inspiration.

Wicker wrapped candles are everywhere nowadays - yesterday at my HomeGoods there were tons in every shape, color, and size. 

Did all those who ordered the Fortessa faux bamboo flatware receive theirs? Here is mine in an Amanda Lindroth island tray. It would look great with this table setting. Amanda Lindroth's Island Trays are 40% off - the sale ends today. Click here.



  1. I am expecting the Fortessa flatware today. Love the Amanda Lindroth tray to hold the flatware. Not sure whether you are good for me or bad!!

  2. Hi Beth,
    My flatware arrived, perfectly packaged, on Saturday. It is gorgeous with wonderful weight. Thanks so much.
    And today’s post has my Christmas wheels turning. Just stunning….and easy to do!

  3. Love the manzanita in teal! On my decorate list....

  4. I received my Fortessa flatware and love the design and the weight. I just need some sunny days to enjoy the outdoors and pretty tablescape.
