Call me an eternal optimist, but I am confident that one day in the near future we will have consistent summer weather and it will be time to entertain outdoors!
I love this melamine (aka unbreakable) dish set from Hearth & Hand with Magnolia at Target. The black and white stripe is such a classic design, but reworked for a bit of a twist! The black and white dishes are such a great base to work with when setting an outdoor table. I personally would set the table with huge bouquets of peonies for the table centerpiece. I also think it would be fun to experiment with some bright pink roses.
That being said I think these dishes would look great with any bright fun flowers, or even stick to white flowers with greenery if that is more your style. I love a black and white palette as it lends itself to so many different styling options! These dishes are so versatile and allow you so much freedom to experiment with whatever flowers and greenery are currently in season.
Now we just need some nice warm summer nights!
