Lorene’s Two Summer Table Settings-Flower Garden and Sea Side Inspired Dinners

4 Comments 14 May 2012

Thanks Lorene Sasson for sharing two of your holiday tables with us! I love the holiday colors and themes that you chose! Now I’m ready for summer! Marlene

Hi Marlene!

The first night of Shavuot I went for the summer/ocean/colorful look, and for the second night, I went for a garden feel. I actually bought the mirrors and the silver chargers from Amazing Savings. The napkins and rings are from Bed Bath and Beyond.

I also used shower gifts from 6 years ago. The silverware was a gift from my sister, as well as the dishes and stemware. I love making the holiday by me  because I can use the items that are really special to me.
I was going to go thru with the whole summer/oceanside feel- but then I saw the flowers at the shop stuffed together and i love COLOR and at the last minute my whole table changed. but to stay true to my original theme, I threw in some ocean glass.

The second night-  I bought new dishes from home goods (Mikasa Cherry Blossom) and I already had cherry blossom branches that I have never known what do do with EVER so i put them away. I decided to bring them out of the closet and add them to the table with my new dishes.
The table runner is Lenox. The  pewter dragonfly/butterfly plates were a gift from my mother who was not here for the holiday this year, so it gave me the chance to make the nights by me. I cant wait to show her the pictures,I know she’ll love them!

I am very pleased with this table because everything really fell together nicely in the garden theme.

Thanks Marlene,  and Shabat Shalom!!

Spring Table Settings

Your spring table should be awash with flowers, colors and little delights…

Use a colorful placemat or tablecloth.

Adorn each place setting with a small flower.

Your centerpiece doesn’t have to be flowers! Here the cakes carry the coral theme and are beautiful on cake stands of varying heights.

A little whimsy goes a long way.

Pink is a perfect color for a spring table. These centerpieces have butterflies added to their bouquets. Each place setting also has a little moss with a flower! How charming!

These blooming branches are very romantic. I also love how they rolled the napkin horizontally across the plate.

Colorful accents like napkin rings and a table runner pick up on the colors of the flowers.

I love how these placemats look with the plates! Orange and turquoise is one of my favorite color combinations!

These are painted paint cans in different sizes and colors. They are so elegant here. The flowers look like they were plucked right from the garden!

This photo makes me dream of summer! I wish I were at that party… Fruits like strawberries look great when displayed in small bowls scattered on the table.


The little bit of burlap gives this table a rustic but refined beauty.

Have a lovely spring!
