When I started thinking about tablescape ideas for this I kept coming back to these indigo glasses and a summery brunch theme.

Why?

Because Mimosas!!!!

I have also been on the old school grapefruit diet. So I’ve been having my share of grapefruit halves and juice. They are just soo pretty!!!

In case you are wondering if you can have champagne with your grapefruit juice on this diet, the answer is NO!!

Uhm that would be the best diet ever and the whole world would be on it!!!!!

I decided to make this a Summer Brunch Series because I have too much to share for just one post.

I will also show you what I made that perfectly pink no-sew runner out of really soon, O.K. I will tell you now, it was an old sheet.

I love to use fruit when decorating for an event.

It is just so colorful and inviting and then my family gets to enjoy it.

I make that sound whimsical, don’t I?

Darling well-behaved children plucking cherries one by one from the bowl. In reality it goes like this: “Touch it and you won’t see your computer for a month!!!!” Then when I give them the “go-ahead” it is hands flying into the bowl of cherries to get a bigger handful than brother, blueberries smashed on the tablecloth, then throwing the blueberries across the room while the other one catches it in his mouth and then my heart stops because I’m sure I will be doing the Heimlich at any moment!!!!!

Did I mention that I have two teenage boys??? I love the crazy and wouldn’t trade it for the world!!!! I just like to laugh about it!!!

I had looked for blush pink linens for a long time but I just couldn’t find any

I found this old sheet that was the perfect blush pink and I just had to use it. Indigo and pink is a winning combo, don’t you agree?

Below I included a source list.

I used dish towels for napkins. These blue ones are from IKEA and I love that they are all a little different.

Simple Indigo and Pink Tablescape for a Beautiful BrunchI have mentioned before how I use dropcloths as tablecloths HERE The runner on my buffet is also a dropcloth.

I have mentioned in this tutorial HERE that these white dishes are my everyday dishes. They are from Pier 1 and I have had them for years. (linked below) They are still going strong. Highly recommended.

 By now you must be feeling amazed at all my fancy things. LOL. Ahem…teenage boys!!

I have used an old sheet, dropcloths, everyday dishes, dish towels and cuttings from the yard.

It is just proof that simple and casual can be beautiful too.

I put a stem of my climbing roses in a carafe for the table.

Then I added bowls of fresh fruit to the runner and my favorite appetizer.

A round of brie drizzled with raw honey. It pairs beautifully with fruit and/or prosciutto, and it looks so pretty on a marble cheese board.

The only change that I made in my dining space was raising my chandelier 10 inches. It was too low before.

I had waited for my husband to help but since he didn’t have time I did it myself!! Whoot whoot!!! What a difference it has made!!!!!

OK…full disclosure. My son helped me hold it up. In between catching blueberries in the air. He is quite good, actually.

Just a little FYI…..I read that a rule of thumb is to hang your chandelier 33″-34″ above the surface of the table for an 8′ ceiling, then add 3″ of height for every foot higher that your ceiling is. Since my ceilings are 9 foot and vaulted I went with 40″ above the table.

  1. First, let me say Jessica, it’s a good thing that you are so skillful in so many feminine arts, such as table settings. It balances out all that free flowing testosterone in your house!! LOL I love the idea of using hand towels as napkins, practical and pretty! It all looks so beautiful and those indigo glasses worked very well!

  2. This is beautiful! I am so inspired, and can’t wait to get my dining room back in order so I can play around with these ideas too! Thanks for sharing it with us on The Creative Circle Link Party!

  3. Jessica, I love using fruit for decorating for events too! It’s so fresh and yummy! I love the indigo and pink in here! The grapefruit was perfect. And go girl with the install!!! It looks so good!

  4. Indigo and pink are also one of my favorite combos! You’ll have to let me know how that grapefruit diet is treating ya! Beautiful table Jessica.

    1. Thank you Mysha. I appreciated being included in the Summer Table Tour. FYI..I decided that the grapefruit diet only worked because you take out all other carbs. So if you eliminated the grapefruit I think you would loose faster. Just my humble opinion.

  5. This all looks so good, Jessica and I love how you added that pink runner. I also have those same dish towels and love them. Haha you made me laugh with your boys. We moms know that life all too well. Thanks for sharing, sweet friend!
