Spotlight On: Summer Tablescapes!

12 Aug

Summer entertaining is wonderful, but every August–amidst the oppressive heat and humidity–I begin to yearn for cooler days and the more formal entertaining that accompanies them.  If you’re like me and you’ve had enough of paper napkins and checkered tablecloths, all hope is not lost.  You can insert a little bit more formality–even use your *good* china!–into your summer entertaining.  Just remember to keep it light and whimsical: create centerpieces from the vegetables you pick up at the Farmer’s Market, use the flowers from your garden, dispense with placemats and tablecloths and mix-and-match high and low pieces from your china cabinet.  The result will be nothing short of refreshing!
