I love hosting dinner parties outdoors during the summer months and am feeling inspired by these gorgeous bright tablescapes. I am such a fan of the bold use of colour, bright floral arrangements and the mismatched tableware, these tables feel like a fun and inviting place to dine with family and friends.
The key to recreating this look is to focus on the colour selection - select two to three bright colours (like the aqua, pink and peach/orange tones above) and work with a white base. Floral arrangements bring these tables to life - use freshly picked garden blooms or search flower markets, you don't need to spend a fortune just look for large blooms that are in season such as hydrangeas, or use single flowers in an array of small jars.

For table and glassware - mix and match existing pieces with bright accessories, remember it doesn't have to be perfect, the key to creating this look is to focus on a fun and eclectic feel, an odd mix of tableware and serving options works fine, just ensure the colours all tie together. Enhance the table with brightly coloured napkins and placemats, DIY is always an option - source cheap and cheerful fabrics and make your own. If you are not keen on sewing use pinking shears to cut out large fabric squares to use as napkins, you can also do this to create a table runner. Another way to tie the colours together is through the use of decorations - think bunting, paper decorations, streamers and balloons and don't forget about lighting - lanterns, candles and fairy lights, they all create ambiance and look stunning used in a garden party.
