By Crate & Barrel
Blend accessible, seasonal elements to create the perfect backyard reception table.
1. Set a Casual Scene.
Mix solid and patterned dinnerware—whatever you have on hand—and layer over a burlap runner. The natural texture serves as an earthy counterpoint to terra cotta. Instead of elaborate centerpieces, cluster bud vases of single seasonal blooms down the length of the table and keep the arrangements low for easy conversation
2. Bloom Simple and Seasonal.
No need for elaborate centerpieces. Instead, cluster bud vases of single seasonal blooms down the length of the table. Keep the arrangements low for easy conversation.
3. Do Something Unexpected.
Fill bowls with lemons and arrange among the flowers for a sunny burst of color. Fruit breaks up the monotony of the blooms and adds more textural interest. Scatter votives throughout to set the table aglow.
