How to Style a Mediterranean-inspired Tablescape
Whether you’re hosting a laidback al fresco lunch or an outdoor summer soiree, consider this your ultimate guide to styling an effortless (yet Instagramable) Mediterranean-inspired tablescape.
Set the tone
Styling the table and setting the mood is always the most enjoyable part and there are some simple ways to make your outdoor gatherings feel special. The tablecloth is the foundation of the table; make it bold. Our block printed tablecloths, available in ocean blue or aloe green, set the tone whilst organic-shaped ceramics and handblown glassware make the perfect accompaniments to evoke a sense of summer by the sea.
Go-to table styling trick
Always be sure to create a variety of heights on the table using flowers, glassware, and candles, but make sure guests can talk over your arrangements.
“I love mixing and matching pieces you love while keeping it casual. Our philosophy at L&M Home is not to be afraid to use nice pieces for every day. For this look, I chose locally grown white cosmos for flowers on the table, along with vibrant heirloom tomatoes to celebrate the height of summer”. - Brooke O’Brien, Stylist
On the menu
Long, slow meals and casual entertaining are essential features of Mediterranean summer life. Invite your guests to a joyful gathering with delicious food and uplifting colours. For a menu that oozes summer in every sense, consider communal platters of fresh local produce – think pasta al limone with zesty Amalfi lemons or a delicious tomato and burrata salad.
