Happy Monday! I hope your weekend was wonderful. I couldn’t sleep in for some reason and Saturday I was up at 5am working and tackling the to-do list. I suppose getting up at 5am isn’t too awful when it allows you to get so many things accomplished before noon. Not to toot my own horn or anything but I whipped up this blog post, cooked an awesome breakfast casserole, ran 2 miles and cleaned my inbox. Boom.
So what inspired this lemon table display? A grocery shopping trip. A bag of lemons called my name from the produce section. Truth.
When it comes to spring and summer entertaining cheerful color patterns are prominent. This lemon inspired soiree table display and place setting is easy to recreate and would make for the best ladies brunch date eva. Let’s chat about planning a lemony soiree!
When it comes to entertaining guests make simple decor pieces stand out. When creating this lemon inspired soiree place setting I knew I wanted more focus on the person attending rather than the plate or napkin. To create this place setting marker simple cut paper into a triangles, write your guests name, hole punch the top, tie on some ribbon, apply to a food safe stick and place in a lemon. An easy and stylish place setting that’s totally the center of attention!
Dressing up the table should always be fun. I added in my favorite mason jars (seriously, love these guys) and pieces of decor from my home. I often pull owls, books, crates and other random items from the house to add to displays which helps show off my personal style.
Fabric can make a world of a difference! This piece of fabric was used in my Blog Fete photos with Melinda Tomasello and she so graciously passed it along. It’s bold, colorful and totally makes the table. I finished off the table by adding lemons to a small wooden box along with ‘flower fillers’.
The display was soooo cute I didn’t want to take it down. It could have stayed up all season and been acceptable, right? Happy spring and summer entertaining and when life gives you lemons….
