Next in our Summer Series is Saffron Marigold’s Waltz of the Vines – which is exactly that. A soft mellow yellow background with vines intertwining and dancing across the pattern, laced with touches of coffee, green and mimosa yellow. If you like sage greens and blues, and long for the sounds and smells of the ocean…this will transport you to a beach in a heartbeat!
Let’s talk al fresco dining today with this luscious vine printed tablecloth!
We all know that creepers and vines love summer. They scramble over arbors and pergolas, spilling forth their heady blossoms, crying out for us to take shelter below…either to sit on the porch swing or dine al fresco. So call your friends over, grab your dinner plates and your food and head outdoors, there’s no better way to enjoy summer!
Tableware: Dinnerware, glassware and napkins
Serve up some champagne in these brilliant crystal hand painted flutes from Etsy? Aren’t they fabulous? The amber glassware sparkles and reflects light in addition to having the same caramelly coffee colors.
For napkins you could use these summery floral napkins from the same collection, or if you prefer, solid color napkins from Rawganique, which will highlight any one of the gorgeous colors….the sage green, the mimosa yellow, the cafe au lait, its your choice!
Curtains and drapery
Curtains from the same collection printed on a soft, summery voile will keep harsh light out while giving you privacy. Nothing says summer like easy, breezy cottons. If solid curtains are your pleasure, then these elegant wheat colored hopsack curtains echoing the café au lait color of the print will do wonders.
Artwork and lighting
Even though Waltz of the Vines is such a summer print, it has such lovely rich autumnal colors I couldn’t help but pick Autumn Melange for artwork. The same caramel coffee hues but in richer deeper shades, offset by yellow highlights is perfect. And this quirky lamp from Cloudberry Market adds a a fun twist.
A summer recipe:
Whatever your menu is, be sure to include this amazing cherry tomato salad. Its light, colorful and summery.

Wow! It will be an unforgettable evening. You’ll remember how much fun you had setting the table with these luscious linens, and they will remember how fabulous the setting looked! And do share the pictures with us!
