Nature Inspired Summer Tablescape

Hi friends!

Get excited because I have a really fun summer tablescape post for you. And you can easily pull it off without spending a dime! Believe me. All you need to do is look around the house for can-be-turned-into-decorations treasures. Because that's exactly what I did.

I was recently inspired by Arhaus to share post-holiday tablescape ideas, and I had the perfect excuse to do some decorating but without spending any dollar. (Btw you should check them out. They have some amazing, swoon-worthy pieces. Oh boy, I would love to have one of these!!!)

I decided to go for a colourful nature inspired theme and built the whole tablescape around it. Summers is, after all, all about sunshine and dining alfresco. And colorful butterflies. 

I decided to use bright summery colors like yellow and pink. I looked through my stash of craft fabric for a piece that could be turned into a runner and found one that went perfectly with my summer theme! To make the print pop, I decided to layer it - so out came my white quilt cover, a perfect backdrop to what I had in mind!

Next, I surrounded the runner with faux leaves garland and painted yellow and pink butterflies and added them to the garland. If you don't have artificial leaves garland, you can easily make one with green paper cut in the shape of leaves and stitched together. You can also add fairy lights to the garland for that extra oomph for when the sun goes down.

For napkins, I simply wrapped left over crepe paper from Inaya's Little Birdie themed first birthday party, added twigs, leaves and a yellow butterfly to complete the look.

Common household items like sauce jars, tins and bottles made perfect vases for leaves, flowers and um some fabric flowers. And when placed inside a basket they made a perfect centerpiece, ideal for any table.

I again used a jar to act as a cutlery holder and added some grey stones.

Lastly, I hung lanterns and added candles for a magical evening. And that is it, you are done with summery bright tablescape setting. Was't it easy?  I just love how it all came together from things already in my home.

Since I love you guys so much for following my little blog, here are some more ways to go about setting a fresh summer table.

Simply add some paint to water to achieve this look. 

You can create this with scattered stones, fresh flowers in a bottle, tea light candles, and leaves inside a jar. You can also add some twinkle lights along with leaves for a magical effect. 

I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I had fun creating it for you guys. I would love to hear your thoughts so please leave some love by commenting below.

Cheers until next time! xx



  1. Love it! You did an amazing job :)

  2. Omg! This is beautiful! ❤ I love the exotic look you have created, and just by using the stuff found at home. First glance at the picture and I thought I can never do this! But you explain how-to-create-this-tablescape so well and make it sound so easy that I am going to give this a try in my house :)
