Summer-Yellow Table Setting

Simple white plates keep the focus on the fresh seasonal food.

For a buffet-style party, keep costs low by using the glassware and dishes you already have. Create a big impact with colour, without commitment, by framing a large piece of wallpaper or fabric. Finish off the look with matching flowers and napkins.

Find more entertaining ideas in our Summer Table Decorating photo gallery. Also, try this delicious Cocoa Cannoli Cake Recipe (pictured here) at your next dinner party.
