Roses are in full bloom on every corner right now, and they create a cheery, fragrant atmosphere all around town. Today, we give you some inspiration for bringing that rosy-summery atmosphere into your dining room at home.
Our muse is the hand printed India Rose cotton tablecloth, available for round and rectangular tables. This exotic warm pink pattern is both romantic and playful, lending itself to a variety of tablescapes all summer long. In any case, your family and guests will be instantly cheered when they gather around this beautiful table, surrounded by people they love. Let’s look at some ways to accessorize this summery fair trade tablecloth…
First some tableware suggestions… Note that I am not recommending an entire new set of dishes: these are accent pieces that you can use along with whatever you already use. And, yes, these are all from Anthropologie… I just couldn’t help myself! These pieces have much of the unique, romantic whimsy that our own India Rose print exudes, and as such will work very well with it.
Summer Rose Centerpieces
Secondly, we have inspirations for simple rose centerpieces that you can put together yourself for a perfect India Rose ensemble. The fragrance alone is reason enough to have roses around, but these are particularly beautiful for their natural, vibrant elegance.
Summer Fruit Desserts
Finally, sweetly, we have ideas for summer berry desserts. If you chose to serve only one of these treats to your crowd, sans dinner, everyone would still go home happy! I’d love to say which is my favorite, but I’m afraid I’ll have to try them all…
India Rose Up Close…
India Rose is a favorite print of mine… I hope you like it as much as I! If you’re interested in this print for your table linens, I recommend purchasing a swatch. These are generously sized, and will arrive quickly to your home so you can decide if India Rose will become part of your summer entertaining repertoire!
