A Boho Alfresco Tablescape

Welcome everyone to the summer tablescape Blog Hop.  Many thanks to  Rita from Panoply for organizing this fun event. I hope you sit back and enjoy some lovely summer tables. The links are at the bottom of this post.  Enjoy😃 If you are coming over from Pam's blog Everyday Living welcome.

I decided to use some bright summer colors, boho style. Bright red orange  Gerbera Daisies with roses and carnations. The colorful  floral tablecloth is  made with Quality 100% Cotton Duck Weave Fabric which is more resistant to Wrinkle, Shrinkage, Fade, and Stain. Boho style is casual, colorful and fun using natural elements.

The plate stack consists of these Blue woven round placemats, perfect boho table decor for a summer table. A bright orange charger follower by the pretty blue and orange dinner plates . Next is a white salad plate with an orange hibiscus flower plate and finally a turquoise compote.

This are is right off our dining room with a firepit.  The orange chairs fit in nicely with my table's decor theme..

The napkins are damask with a pretty aqua color tied with a Pier 1 orange flower napkin ring.  I do miss shopping at Pier1. You can see the cottage in the distance, along with my hummingbird feeders.

A fun and colorful table set for two off our patio. We have two large comfy rockers to sit and take in the gardens, koi fish and the darling hummers.

Napoleon Bee flatware is the perfect summer flatware.

  1. Linda, I have always been a fan of the orange and turquoise color scheme, it just sings summer! The plate stack is perfect and I love the orange hibiscus plate. Your garden and grounds look like a five star resort. The last photo at dusk is stunning. I could just sit in that lovely spot for hours. It is always a pleasure to sit at table with you! Happy Summer!

  2. Such a bright and cheery table, your outdoor space is incredible. Love all the color!

  3. So bright and cheery! I miss Pier 1. It was one of my favourite stores to browse in.

  4. Linda- I love it--it is so much fun. For some reason, with the colors, I thought of Pioneer Woman right away. It makes me think of warm summer days and being surrounded by happiness. Love it! xo Diana

  5. Oh my gosh, Linda, I’m crazy about your boho table!!! Your plate stack is amazing and that fun tablecloth is perfect with the cake stand. Don’t you have the perfect setting to enjoy all this??!! Happy summer!

  6. Oh my, Linda! You've created the perfect, festive outdoor dining area with your colorful place settings and accessories, all set to impress! And it certainly does that! Once again, you have the unique ability to set the loveliest tablesettings for any occasion, and this one is no exception! Your beautiful gardens definitely adds to the lively atmosphere, too!

  7. WOW - what a bright and cheery table - I am amazed at your dish collection (you must have a dish room for storage - lol) The setting is so pretty and you and Paul must enjoy sitting out there. I love the rug, too. Well done, as always!

  8. Linda this is so vibrant and colorful, which I love! Great tablecloth and dishes and the flowers are lovely! Love the cake stand!

  9. Your boho table is such fun, Linda. I love how you were able to include all the colors of the tablecloth into the dishes and setting. It's just so darned cheerful!

  10. I love love this Linda! So happy and fun, the tablecloth is so bright and colorful! I love that Pioneer Woman line and have several things from it too. Gerber daisies are the perfect flower to use and I love the turquoise accents in the straw mats and the turquoise napkins and goblets, so pretty! The hibiscus plates are adorable and the napkin rings so cute!! Of course your patio setting is completely dreamy, that is where I would be all the time.

  11. Loving your colorful, Boho setting, Linda. Each time I see photos of your outdoor spaces, I'm reminded that you live in a resort setting. How nice you can enjoy this most of the year. Happy Summer!

  12. Well, that was bright, cheerful and fun!

  13. Linda, what a bright and cheerful table you have set to welcome summer! The plate stack is gorgeous and your flowers are so lovely. It all looks so pretty with your beautiful gardens in the background and what a happy place to be. A pleasure to hop with you and wishing you a very happy summer!

  14. Linda, what a colorful, bright and fun summer tablescape. And, oh how wonderful the table looks set within/against your beautiful outdoor landscape and patio. It's impossible not to smile when viewing it. I always enjoy --- and look forward to seeing --- how you mix, match and style all the terrific details of your linens, dishes, glasses, flatware (you know I love the bees!) to create a thematic table. Happy summer!

  15. Linda, Your boho alfresco table is so cheerful and welcoming! I love your colorful plate stack topped with your orange hibiscus flower plate and aqua compote…the echo and mimic the tablecloth perfectly! I’m so envious of your year-round hummer visitors! We’re just starting to see our Ruby-throated hummingbirds here. You’re so fortunate to have such wonderful outdoor living, dining and entertaining areas on your property. As always, it’s a treat to join you at the table and hop with you, Happy Tuesday ♥

  16. I love your table, Linda. I showed it to my daughter who also loves all things boho, and she asked at what resort were the photos taken, LOL! Your setting is so pretty, and it does look like a resort! I love your colors: red and turquoise is a fun color combination. I love the texture of your turquoise placemats. They are perfect for summer, as is the colorful tablecloth! I do love eating alfresco this time of year, and I can tell that you enjoy it, too. Happy summer!

  17. Bohemian rhapsody! I love this style, Linda! All the colors, and the way you've mixed in the beautiful, colorful florals in the linens and plates brings a very lively vibe to the table. I can see picture it in a soft glow in evening light as well, with the relaxation of the firepit adjacent to it. Your property has so many wonderful areas for relaxing and entertaining, it would be hard to beat that in ANY vacation spot. I would just want to stay home, nothing better. Thank you for bringing the colors of summer to the table in this hop. in an alfresco setting. Happy summer!

  26. Linda, my heart skipped a beat seeing this beautiful and brightly colored tablescape. I love the various colors and set among a gorgeous landscaping. I can imagine taking in all of the beauty and sunshine seated at this festive table. I am sure it feels like being on vacation without even leaving. I love your use of bright and bold flowers for your centerpiece and napkin rings. It truly makes a cheerful statement. The Pioneer Woman pieces were definitely meant to be and works so elegantly into your tablescape. Now....I will have one of those cookies...please..... Happy Summer

  27. You had me at “Boho”. The colors are so pretty and my favorite is the woven placemats.

    Linda your boho setting is perfect! The bright orange and turquoise go so well with your outdoor setup… the fire pit adds the right ambiance and I have garden envy as my garden is still an aftermath of hurricane damage! We are slowly getting it back together but your lush landscaping is simply gorgeous! I also have the bee flatware and it is a natural with so many settings! I miss Pier 1!

    1. Linda I don't know why that comment is anonymous, unless it was because I was using my IPhone and the settings are not like my laptop...😳AND I wasn't finished with my comments...so to be continued...the Pioneer Woman cake stand looks a perfect match, how lucky for you. I did spy a beautiful angel in your garden...luv it, can you share where you got it? What a relaxing spot to watch the hummers and the koi pond. Happy Summer to you and yours. Blessings Always.

    2. Thank you Kari, I did write a post about anonymous comments. So sorry to hear your garden suffered so much. The bee flatware is so fun! The garden angel I bought on amazon. Blessings to you.

  29. Linda, your boho table setting is absolutely beautiful! I love all the color and your pretty floral tablecloth!

  30. So beautiful and fun....Thanks for sharing! Love the bright orange Gerber Daisy in the centerpiece!

  31. Your table, patio, and yard is so welcoming Linda! Your boho colors are so fun and fresh - orange and turquoise are so festive for summer! You pulled it all together so beautifully! I'm a big Pioneer Woman fan too :-) It's fun to celebrate with you! Happy Summer! ❤️ Jennifer @ Celebrating Everyday Life ❤️

  32. Oh Linda! This is such a fantastic table. love, Love, LOVE. All the Anthro boho vibes going on here. You cannot help but smile when you look at your table. Have a wonderful, sunny day! XO- MaryJo

  33. What a cheerful table Linda. I love the aqua color. The glass pieces remind me of the pool water...perfect for summer! Cheers!

  34. Linda, your bright colors and patterns are perfect for a summer table. Your pretty flower arrangement picks up the colors in the tablecloth and spreads the design around. Definitely, a fun table to dine at.
