Simple everyday enchantment is one of my favorite things. Simple is always in style. A little bistro table and brunch on the porch. This tablescape is styled around a small collection of cabbage ware salad plates. The green is an eyecatcher! Even better when green is combined with black and white. Don’t you think?
And when it comes to tables and entertaining- it is all about natural, easy and pretty. A garden brunch – party for two.
#1 Mix and Match
Maybe and eclectic mix of designs – Natural woven placemats, cabbage ware dishes stacked on white plates & green goblets… maybe a summer seasonal anchor. Cream linen napkins and vintage silverware tied up with mossy green ribbon, all give you a garden feel. And… don’t forget the base layer – a white and black plaid tablecloth. I think I once mentioned that I’m not a matchy-match sort of girl. I am all about black, white, and green combined this season.
#2. Wicker Chairs
An added sense of cozy are two outdoor wicker chairs softened with white lumbar pillows. Create a cozy area with what you have and enjoy.
#3. Added Personality
Creating a little spot to enjoy a cup of coffee & feel like you are in a little cafe in Paris – right in your own front yard or porch, that is, all inspired by green cabbage ware. I used cabbage ware pottery plates for a pop of color, favorite vintage silverware and chunky handmade serving boards for the croissants and cheeses.
#4. Flowers and Ambiance
It is no secret that I am a big fan of table settings and flowers and table settings with flowers, but due to limited space – one single bloom seemed to speak the loudest. So, I left the drama to one single white rose and a small candle in a vintage silver creamer. With centerpieces- I always think simple is best. With a small table for brunch, one simple bloom seemed to be enough. It is easy and charming, and it doesn’t need much else.
That is as simple as it goes. My very last and most important tip for decorating any space inside and out is create a budget and stay within it. All of what I share are curated over time, through new items purchased online, department store, to vintage items picked up at an antique shop or thrifted. There are items I snag when I find them on sale or for a discounted price, and items that I know I want, and just need to pay full price for – which is far and few between. At the end of the day take your time and curate your look, don’t rush it. I hope you enjoy this simple cozy summer tablescape inspired by my green cabbage ware plates. I hope you are thinking of a few items you may already have to get this same or similar look. Summer dining has a special place in my heart here at Rustic and Refound.
