Hello dear friends! Happy Summer to you! I am so excited to share with you my lemon decor tablescape. This year I wanted to incorporate lemons in my summer decorating. My dining room table is my go to place to start decorating as it is located at the center of our kitchen and living room areas.
Adding Black and White with Pops of Yellow
Black and white is my go-to decorating color combination. These two paired together can give a classic and dramatic feel to any home. I was very pleased how the black and white complimented the bright yellow lemons! I love how the yellow gave a pop of color and really made a statement.
When preparing to decorate an area in my home, I always begin with an inspiration piece. As I was shopping I found this black and white polka dot table runner and knew it was just the thing help me get started. It creates a fun focal point for the lemon themed decor tablescape.
This black and white vase started out as a clear glass vase. As I was shopping I could not seem to find the exact vase that I was envisioning for my floral centerpiece. This lead me to this DIY project a few months back. My vision was to fill the vase with fresh summer flowers. My friend Candice, at Bloom Haven Floral Designs did just that! She created this beautiful arrangement of white roses, hydrangea and peonies, along with craspedia yarrow. The yellow craspedia was the perfect accent to the arrangement and pulled all the yellows in the table design together. I absolutely love how this centerpiece turned out. It exceeded my expectations!
Bringing Symmetry to the Decor
As I am decorating I like to create a symmetrical feel in the space. I was able to achieve this balanced look by using these wreaths on either side of the floral centerpiece. Next, I placed a black lantern inside of each wreath. They were a perfect fit! I placed white candles with a DIY black stripe inside each lantern. To complete the look, I added fresh lemons throughout the wreaths.
Creating a Lemon Decor Place Setting
Preparing a place setting it is essential when creating a dining room tablescape. By correctly layering your pieces you will be able to create a stunning place setting for your guests! To get this layered look, I began with these yellow and white striped rectangular place mats. I added a black, round place mat on top of a larger dark brown place mat made out of natural rattan to add texture. I then added a black round place mat to help create texture and build on a layered look. Next, I topped the place mats with a white scalloped charger. I continued layering by adding a black matte stoneware dinner plate and white embossed salad plate. I topped it off with a ceramic bowl to tie in the lemon themed decor. The white napkins and simple wooden napkin rings give each place setting a crisp and finished look.
