Simple Summer Tablescape Decor

As you know by now, we have our house on the market to sell.
No offers yet but, all of the feedback from showings has been really positive.
I wanted the dining room we created from the formal living room to really stand out.  I was limited though, as most of my tablescaping props have been packed and are in a storage unit.  That really hinders what I can do for table décor.

I kept the place settings very simple.  A lacy place mat I bought at
World Market for my Easter table, topped off with a Dollar Tree lime green dinner plate and a fun striped salad plate I bought on clearance at Stein Mart awhile back. No drinkware or flatware.
The centerpiece is also kept simple with a pair of candlesticks from Pier 1 topped with candles from Ikea.  The vase in the center was purchased back in December when I met up with my blogging friend, Elaine, for a thrifting date.

The colors aren't a perfect match but, they sure are close.

My hope is that the tablescape is simple enough for a potential buyer to see themselves entertaining in this room and, bright enough to excite their senses enough to make an offer LOL! Fingers and eyes crossed friends!

  10. Hi Kathe
    Your table and colors are lovely.

  11. Hi Kathe, I love the way you decorated the table! I also love the crocheted placemats. My goal is to try and crochet my own placemats. It is so much work to try and back up a house and I wish you luck with everything. Have a great weekend. I saw it on petals to picots.

  12. That is a great idea, to have a table set when selling your home. I used to have a neighbor who ALWAYS had a table set. It always looked so welcoming & homey. Hopefully for you it will pay off. Best of luck. -Dawn
