A Summer Citrus Soiree

There's nothing I love more than a themed get together (as evidenced by my children's birthday parties), and summer is my favorite season, so what could be better than a summer soiree?! Citrus is so bright, fresh and summer-y, I just knew it had to be the theme for this fun tablescape.

My best tip for planning any party, gathering or even casual dinner is to choose a color palette and stick to it. Even if you don't have a clearly defined "theme," simple touches like coordinating table linens make such an impact and help everything to feel intentional.

For this backyard tablescape I wanted something that felt effortless, fun and laid back. I started with this classic blue and white gingham tablecloth.

It's a staple piece I pull out often and was a great base piece to layer in the citrus hues mixed with blues. 

 
Next I scooped up some outdoor entertaining essentials at Walmart. I am so impressed with Walmart Home's selection for summer. Both the plates and glasses are shatterproof - perfect for outdoor dining!


I especially loved this caddy of silverware - it makes grabbing the cutlery and heading outside such a breeze.


Walmart Home has been my go-to for a while for affordable home finds, so it was no exception this season. The darling vintage-style pitcher is perfect for serving old fashioned lemonade.

I topped these pretty glasses with a grapefruit wedge for a pop of color.


The yellow gingham napkins carried through the cheery theme, and were perfect for layering on some little citrus cakes from the bakery at each place setting.
 
 
And these fun woven placemats grounded everything with natural texture - their pattern reminds me of summer sunshine.

 

Here is a round up of my favorite citrus-themed and outdoor dining finds from Walmart if you'd like to recreate this look and throw your own citrus soiree! I can promise it's just the thing for a summer evening.
