Lavender & Allium Outdoor Summer Tablescape

 I moved outdoors for my latest tablescape. The weather has been sunny and warm so it was the perfect time to enjoy an alfresco meal.

I combined lavender and allium for a table full of purple power.

The cool colour tones helped make us feel comfortable in the warmth of the summer day.

The centerpiece began with three of these faux pots of lavender to which I added a faux allium bloom.

These glass candleholders were placed between the pots of lavender.

Faux lamb's ear stems were tucked into the lavender in the middle of the table which created a softness to the design.

The place settings started with a purple placemat topped by a gray charger.

Next, a melamine grape-patterned salad plate sits atop a sage-green dinner plate. 

The dish stack topper is a purple compote dish with an allium bloom for an added embellishment. Silver flatware was tied with a purple ribbon and placed alongside.

 An acrylic beaded napkin ring encircles both a green and purple napkin.

Faux lavender stems were tucked inside in keeping with the theme.

An aerial view of the finished tablescape...

 ...complete with a "candelier" overhead which adds to the ambiance in the evenings.

 I also added fairy lights to the centerpiece for a little sparkle.

In the background here, you can see a bit of our outdoor lighting as well.

This was a fun tablescape to put together using these purple flowers and coordinating it with our backyard lawn by adding green accents.

 Have you been able to enjoy many alfresco meals this summer?

Thanks for visiting!

  3. It's beautiful, Lori! My daughter's wedding flowers/colors were lavender. I love how you illuminated the pretty centerpiece. Wish I had thought of that for her centerpieces. Lori, your Canada Day tablescape touched me so deeply that I've shared a link to it in my weekly newsletter this morning. xo

    1. Thank you so much Marie for your kind comments on my lavender tablescape - how nice that your daughter chose that as her wedding flowers. I also appreciate you providing more exposure for my Every Child Matters Tablescape and highlighting the tragic circumstances that befell Indigenous children at Residential Schools and the trauma that continues to this day. Hopefully through education and awareness, we can begin to accomplish the many government and societal changes that are needed.
