Summer Table Inspiration from Chelsea Fuss

Summer Table Inspiration from Chelsea Fuss

We don't have much reason to read wedding blogs these days, but we are still drawn back from time to time to gather fresh inspiration for entertaining and dinner parties. There are some wonderfully decorated tables and party ideas out there in the blog world, and some of our favorites (especially for outdoor dining in the summertime) are created by Chelsea Fuss of {frolic!}. Read on for three of our favorites.

We like how Chelsea designs relatively simple and organic tables that wouldn't be too hard to recreate at home. They're not overly elaborate like some of the gorgeous yet way too detailed (for us, anyway) table settings we see in other places. Hers have a simplicity and sweetness that are very inspiring for al fresco dining in the summer time.

The table pictured up top is an herb-inspired table that would be very easy and inexpensive to recreate, with burlap-covered jars of fresh herbs, plain white linen, and simple plates. Beautiful!

This table involves gorgeous red geraniums, cheery namecards, vintage milk bottles, and a creative IKEA hack.

This final table is a sweet country-themed setting perfect for outdoor dining — whether you're on a roof in Brooklyn or in an orchard in Ohio you'll feel like summer has arrived.
