Every summer of my life has included a summer visit to the lake in Ontario, Canada.  That means lazy beach walks, time to relax and read, and hours with friends and family.  It also means evening dinners on the deck watching the sunset.  My mother has put together an amazing collection of tabletop items but her go-to tablescape includes her raffia placemats brought home from a market in the south of France years ago and her blue and white splatterware.  It is an easy recipe for a fresh and pretty summer tablescape. 

Even though some of her things have been collected over time, I’ve linked to exact or similar options here so that you can put a table just like big mama’s together for your next outdoor summer gathering.
