3 Ways to Decorate a Farmhouse Table for Summer
Compliment Your Table with Bench Seats
For an outdoor dinner, bench seats can be used instead of chairs. Wooden bench seating is reminiscent of a picnic table and can give a dinner party a great summer atmosphere. You can customize the benches with decorative pillows and cushions depending on the activity, or add plants and greenery as a centerpiece. With these small additions, you can add color and vibrancy to any table setting. If you’re looking for something a little more unique, try placing your plants in unusual containers. For example, fill a vintage-inspired watering can full of succulents and cacti, which are the perfect low maintenance summer plants.
Add A Pop of Color
An indoor table can be designed for a casual dining area or more formal setting all while retaining the farmhouse feel. For a casual, fun look, try pairing some colored chairs with your table. Bringing in some color with a set of interesting chairs is a unique way to brighten up space with an eclectic touch.
For a more formal look, try darker colored decorative elements. The rich brown of a leather-inspired table runner could be reminiscent of the Old West. Consider adding other Western-inspired elements such as wrought iron chairs and flowers kept in interesting shaped bottles instead of traditional vases. For a splash of color, incorporate vibrant large candlesticks. Flickering firelight adds elements of movement and dimension to any centerpiece.
