With the summer season in full swing, our meals continue longer, indoors and outdoors, much to our delight. Special moments of sharing and togetherness around a table that make us want to celebrate and enjoy ourselves. The dining room table becomes a blank canvas on which to let your imagination run free. A place to express yourself, where a number of decorative essentials fit together with ease. In this article, The Socialite Family has put together six ideas for a beautiful summer table, just for you. The art of arrangement begins with your choice of tablecloth, a piece usually reserved for special occasions, which will give a festive spirit to our summer lunches and dinners. Choose a natural material, linen or cotton gauze – like our Oeko-Tex® certified Allegra collection – which will bring freshness to your room thanks to its varied colours. If you want to be more unconventional, opt for an embroidered or patterned piece that will stand out to your guests. Summer tables are also an opportunity to proudly display colourful and creative tableware. Mediterranean blue patterns like our Bolle pieces, poetic fish shapes at Tuba Club, these pretty handcrafted creations will sit elegantly alongside your vintage finds or your precious family service. Pitchers, jugs, decanters, silverware – mix contemporary and second-hand elements. Liven up your arrangement with country-style bouquets that reflect your image. Fresh or dried flowers, branches, sprigs of wheat – give pride of place to what you’ve collected on your walks! These sprays will be enhanced by a stage set of colourful containers with diverse silhouettes. Combine our Duetto composition vase with our Torino decanter, a receptacle that can be used as a feature in a play of heights and transparency! As you can see, the summer table is an ode to colour and romantic pieces, a playground to be embraced with pleasure for unforgettable holiday memories!
