When the weather is nice, why not enjoy dinner with your family and friends outside? Come spring and summer in Tennessee, there is nothing better than dining in the fresh air, with a cold cocktail in hand. Get inspired for backyard alfresco dining with our stylish in-stock serving ware.
Vibrant Cherry Red & Teal
To complement the colors of the season, we love a vibrant tablescape. This design features cherry red and teal, for a look that is classically southern. Our warm fruitwood farm table acts as a base for White Square China, Navy Blue Velvet napkins, and Pure Glassware. A cool-toned, Dove Grey runner lends another hint of blue to the table. Meanwhile, our Brushed Copper Flatware and Audrey Gold Rim Glassware bring a touch of glam via metallics.
Natural Lime & Lemon
Sometimes less is more! For this natural table design, fresh citrus and fruit was the star of the show. Atop Heritage Ivory Linens, we placed our simple Artisan China and Wood Round Charger, complemented by Brushed Copper Flatware. The centerpieces consisted of fresh greenery and citrus, which were perfect for the lush lawn setting. To tie some greenery into the tablescape, we opted for our favorite fern velvet napkins. This design is ideal for a bright mid-morning brunch or afternoon cocktail hour!
When you want a casual yet put-together look, opt for a farm-to-table design. This simple tablescape features our Artisan China, Sophia Flatware, and Madison Glassware. Despite the minimal serving ware and linens, what truly makes this layout is the table and chairs. Take our Cross-back chairs, which are plain yet oh so elegant. For a pop of color, you might consider brightly-colored napkins or a table runner. Perhaps in our Cornsilk Poly or Peaches n’ Cream Poly.
Bold Black & Gold
Black and gold are a classic pairing and surefire way to make a statement. This luxe and bold backyard alfresco dining table showcase a mix of moody hues, including black, gold, and a variety of red shades. For the serving ware, we opted for our Austin Flatware, Medallion Gold Glass Charger, and Madison Glassware. What amplifies this tablescape is the balance from glam elements, such as the gold and acrylic details. Take for example our always popular Acrylic Ghost Chairs! If you prefer an equally colorful but bright style, take a look at this colorful backyard party.
There is something so charming about gingham, and this backyard cookout-inspired table just does it for us. It was created using our Onyx China and silver Sophia Flatware. The true black plates are an easy way to bring the fun gingham tablecloth back down to earth. Yet super cute coke bottle centerpieces and our contemporary Davis Glassware keep the overall vibe light. For a look that is slightly more toned down, switch out this tablecloth for a solid or neutral color.

In regards to chairs, we used a mix of rustic benches and our elegant Cross-back chairs. Although simple, it creates a foundation from which to add color!

Metallic Place Settings
An easy way to add warmth to a colorful backyard event is with gold or silver accents. Featuring our Gold Round Lacquer Charger and Austin Flatware, adds a touch of metallics that contrasts beautifully against turquoise centerpieces. It also complements the golden yellows and sunset-inspired oranges throughout the event design. Don’t forget to pull these accents into other parts of your events with gold-rimmed glasses on your bar or gold side tables in your lounge. This creates a more cohesive look.
When it comes to table centerpieces people often feel the need to use matching pieces. A colorful backyard party is a perfect time to experiment with creative shapes and colors. This tablescape features a mix of vases, in teal, white, gold and clear glass – easy for a DIY backyard party. For candles, we suggest varying heights to add some dimension (though you can also create this with taller arrangements). As far as flowers go, consider keeping it simple but bright with a variety of wildflowers. Orange & yellow tones perfectly contrasted and popped against the teal and white glassware!
Vibrant linens are so much fun! The use of bright colors will lend a sense of liveliness to your event, plus make your event photos pop. Don’t be afraid to use different linens for each table either! Note how we were careful to switch up the color of our table centerpieces depending on the linen color. As a general rule: place lighter colored centerpieces on dark tablecloths and vice versa. Our Fuschia Etched Velvet Linens with their gold veining would be a another way to bring in a subtle metallic accent and a bold pop of color.
