Four Outdoor Tablescape Looks
01 Playful Office Space

Here at Studio McGee, we’re embracing the start of summer with open arms and open doors. Ensure your al fresco dinner parties are at their finest with the help of our four styled tabletop looks.

Whether we’re nestled under shady trees during a backyard garden party or out on the patio for a casual family weekday dinner, there’s something extra special about gathering with loved ones in in the open air. Besides the styled tablescape, nature is the décor.

It’s part of why we’ve spent so much time designing and styling tablescapes that reflect the beauty of our surroundings. With light textiles, woven textures, and playful prints, we’re making space for airy, soft, and subtle details. Here are four of our favorite styled summer tablescapes for dining al fresco and all the outdoor table setting ideas you need to get the party going.


Layers of Green

The light green tone of the Melrose Striped Tablecloth compliments the rich green hue of the Fontaine Melamine Dinner Plate to set the tone of the tablescape. The mix of clean modern stripes and charming floral motifs create an atmosphere of elegance and playfulness. If you are looking to add one more layer, consider a bar cart like the Haviland Bar Cart that is both beautiful and functional.


A Romantic Flair

All the little details from the fringe-lined Market Umbrella to the pastel color scheme of the Estelle Block Print Tablecloth evoke a sense of romance. The natural bamboo, delicate florals, and ribbed glass add to the ambiance. Don’t forget to set the mood and add soft lighting with woven hurricanes or taper candles.


An Earthy Aesthetic

The botanical motif of the Adela Tablecloth sets the tone for the entirety of this al fresco tablescape with a rustic and unfussy vibe. Everything else supports the tablecloth with a muted palette and sophisticated but laidback materials like wicker, linen, and clay. Finish your tablescape with a fresh set of greens as a centerpiece.


A Little Bit of Whimsy

There’s something eternally romantic about our Odette Melamine Dinner Plates, with their soft blue floral detailing and intricate edge. Place them on top of the handwoven Lutindzi grass placemats for a bit whimsy to your styled outdoor tablescape. These Round Woven Placemats are made by a time-honored African weaving technique that creates stunningly simplistic patterns that are textural and organic.
