Weekly Table Setting: Summer is Coming

For this week's setting, we're back to bright, fun colors, but this time these colors are all summer. Gone are the soft hues of spring, the greens and pinks and pastels, even though we're safely nestled into the spring season as we speak. Here at Didriks, we're already thinking ahead to the even warmer days, days of backyard barbecues and lazy picnics, and endless opportunities for outdoor entertaining. The basis of this table setting is the iittala Origo Dinnerware Collection. The collection features a colorful stripes design, which adds cheer to any table setting. To pair nicely with the plates, we used vibrant Libeco Home Polylin Blend Tablerunners in Verde, a new seasonal color that has a lovely saturated green/teal hue.

The napkins  were also from the Libeco Home Polylin Collection, and we featured them in another new color, Lemon Yellow. The napkins were set between the  iittala Salad Plate and the Dessert Bowl, both in the Orange color scheme. We also included an orange iittala Origo 10" Dinner Plate, and flatware from the David Mellor Odeon Stainless Steel collection.

The sea green glassware came from another iittala collection. Shown here are the iittala Kartio Large Tumblers, which pair beautifully with the deep green table runners. The combination of the two makes the dinnerware appear to jump off the table, which creates a really vivid and dynamic look.

As accessories on the table, we included a Pillivuyt Cake Stand with a Sabre Flatware Madras Charm Bread Knife and Sabre Flatware Madras Charm Tart Slicer, both in Orange. The cake stand is anxiously awaiting a summer bundt cake, with bright berries cascading down the sides.

It's exciting to think of those warm days that aren't so far off now, and it's certainly time to start considering your outdoor entertaining needs. We hope you'll stop in - virtually or in person - and see what our collections have to offer!
