I get excited when hosting a party, especially a summer, outdoor event.   Somehow there is nothing like setting a gorgeous table for family and friends.  Yet it doesn't take much to make it beautiful because all it really needs is great linens paired with unique flatware and a few flowers. summer dining

I'm not one who feels a table needs to be overly elaborate.  In fact, I prefer utilizing high quality linens that accompany summer time flatware, such as Sabre.

Pairing a nice Libeco linen in Yale goes perfectly with Sabre Nature wood.  The combination is ideal when you want to give your dinner table an earthy, modern feel.  Both are made with high quality fiber and wood, giving you years of use.

Another one of my favorite combinations that is energetic yet subdued is combining the Libeco Fjord linens with Sabre Natura flatware in a beach side turquoise.  It's perfect when you want to bring the fun of summer onto your table without being overwhelming.   Your guests will love the fun, playful colors.

Try adding a different style to your summer outdoor table this year.  Mix Belgian linen with the elegant French flatware and see what combination you create.
