Summer Tablescapes for Festive Entertaining

By guest blogger Mark Kintzel

Warm weather is here, and so is entertaining season. I’ve got three projects in one that will help you transform your outdoor or indoor space on a limited budget. With the versatility these offer, you can host all summer long and always keep your party space looking fresh!

I’m using some sap buckets and a berry tray that I picked up at a flea market last month. You can experiment with your own containers: wooden fruit crates from the grocery store, vintage vases, clean ceramic pottery, or whatever you have on hand. Wait until you see how these inexpensive containers pop when paired together!

The possibilities are endless. Mix and match outdoor elements like stone, moss, and sand to create the unique look that suits your event best. How easy and beautiful!

For more of my simple summer projects, including instructions for folding your own pinwheels like the ones in this video, check out the Maria’s Farm Country Kitchen Facebook page.
