Summer Inspired Blue and White Table Setting

With this beautiful summer weather we are having, I thought it was time for a summer inspired table setting using blue and white!

In my opinion, blue and white are perfect colors to use in the summer...

Summer Inspired Blue and White Table

Ever since I decorated the kitchen for Mother’s Day, I have been wanting more blue and white in here.

After all, blue and white does feel summery and gives that coastal inspired feel!

Recently, I was fortunate to win a $100 gift card to TJMaxx/Homegoods from the blog, In My Own Style.  I used it to purchase these blue and white Ralph Lauren place mats…among other things!

Blue and White Place Setting

Yes, I have been quite lucky with giveaways lately!  I mentioned the other day that I also won the ebook, The Bloggers Guide to Copyright and Trademark Law – How to Protect Yourself and Enforce Your Rights written by Breighanne Eggert…which is a must read!  I highly recommend it!  With all this luck, maybe I should play the lottery!

Then I could buy more blue and white…lots of it….

Until recently, I hadn’t been buying too many things – since we splurged on our kitchen remodel last year.  My husband is still recovering from that…financially and mentally…lol.

Besides the place mats, I already owned the other pieces on the table.  The starfish add some coastal touches and always appear around the house this time of year.

Plain white napkins mixed with the textured napkin rings keep things casual.

One of these days, I will get around to buying a new table and chairs.  These work for now.  Don’t even get me started on the counter stools though.  Yes, I am still shopping for those!  *Update – I finally purchased new counter stools!

I use these rattan chargers from Pier One all the time…one of my smartest purchases.  They are so versatile and mix with almost any style.

So far, I haven’t grown tired of this view from the table.  This time last year, things were a bit torn apart!

On the middle of my island, I threw a little more blue and white together with this tray from Homegoods…another one of my gift card purchases!

I hope you enjoyed my summer inspired kitchen table setting.

Expect to see more blue and white in my kitchen from now on and stop by tomorrow to see how I updated this look for the 4th of July!  You know it’s practically around the corner!  You can now see that post – Patriotic Table Setting.

    Your table is perfectly summery! Those placemats are gorgeous and work perfectly with your dishes. I giggled a little about knowing that you have to let your husband recover. Isn't that the truth? We learn these things with time. I hope you'll join us for TOHOT today. 🙂

    Fresh flowers are essential for my summer table. Preferably dahlias and sweet peas! Zinnias are also good 🙂
