Tropical Meets Tassels

If you're all about neutral color palettes, then this is the perfect summer place setting for you—and it adds plenty of fun elements to your tablescape (hello, jute charger and tassel napkins). We especially love this tropical melamine plate from Terrain that can be brought outside without having to worry about chips and cracks. The gold flatware collection from World Market ties the whole look together (plus, would look great in a holiday tablescape).

A Splash of Color

If an at-home fiesta is in your future then this placemat is a must. While this placemat stands out on its own, the place setting is taken to the next level when paired with coordinating colors (we suggest turquoise). To create this summer place setting we used a patterned bowl, a solid yellow plate, turquoise napkins to match the placemat, and classic stainless steel flatware.
