Similar to designating a preferred theme for your summer tablescape, discover the color scheme of your table for a fully cohesive and eye-catching look. The key is to strike a delicate balance, avoiding an overwhelming fusion of patterns and hues.

When determining the color scheme for your summer table arrangement, it is important to consider your surroundings and environment. You may want to incorporate the color of the flowers you are surrounded by or potentially the existing elements within your space. To infuse an extra sense of vibrancy, bold colors can be showcased through floral arrangements or refreshing cocktails, adding a touch of liveliness to your setting that looks natural and soft.

The power of colors lies in their ability to harmonize with our surroundings. Matching your tableware to the elements you are surrounded by often makes for a beautiful look. Coordinating your tablecloth with accessories such as napkins, candles, serveware, and vases is a crucial element to consider. A valuable tip is to establish a baseline colorway and explore different hues and tones within that palette. As seen above, there are various neutral and beige tones accented with a pop of greenery, making for a coordinated appearance.
