Mostess Summer Table

Island Vibes Tablescape

 I'm so excited to share our Mostess summer table using the entire Island Vibes Box. Scroll through for decor, hosting tips and a little island inspiration. 

Tablescape Trio

At Mostess we like to keep things simple (but still swoon-worthy!). Every tablescape should have three basic components: Table Covering, Place Settings, Centerpiece. That's it!

1. Table Covering

Our partners at Turkish-T have the perfect summer textile. If you have a modest sized table (like mine) you can use the towel as a tablecloth.  If your table is larger in scale, simply fold the towel (horizontally) and use it as a table runner. The soft natural texture creates small wrinkles and waves that will give your tablescape a laid-back look. Included in every Island Vibes Box.

2. Place Settings

The phrase "place settings" brings to mind an old, antiquated table. One where you are expected to sit up straight and refer to strict rules of etiquette--but not at Mostess! We like to take a fresh spin on hosting. So for the place settings I used Monstera leaves from my local florist, and layered my dinner plates and Mostess flamingo appetizer plates. The playful detailing keeps both the guests and hostess feeling relaxed!

For glassware, I used the Island Vibes botanical glasses and pineapple stirrers.  Our partners at 8 Oak Lane made a refined, yet whimsicle glass that will be the envy of all your dinner guests.  We love them so much that we included four in each Island Vibes Box!

3. Centerpiece

I used the Island Vibes Box teak wood tray, key limes, and fresh flowers! 

the extras

After the tablescape trio is complete, you can have fun by adding a few personal touches. Our resident calligrapher, Amber, used cream colored tiles to create tropical place cards. For a refreshing pre-dinner treat, we placed out our Island Vibes Box key lime cookies on each plate. For an extra pop of island style, I used utensils with bamboo details. 

Special thank you to the companies who collaborated with Mostess to style our tablescape: Kate Elizabeth Photography, Styled by Kelsey, For Love of Lettering, Genie Mack Designs.
