A Bright And Cheerful Lemon Tablescape For Summer

Lifestyle expert, journalist and interior design blogger Candie Anderson of candieanderson.com shares how she created a bright and cheerful lemon tablescape for summer with Walmart.

 

My birthday is typically a week before Father’s Day. When I was growing up, we celebrated my special day on the renowned third Sunday in June with my grandparents, aunt, and uncle! This year I was feeling a bit nostalgic and wanted to do something fantastic since we didn’t get a chance to celebrate on my actual birthday! My family and I were planning on going to a local vineyard when we thought why not celebrate at home? The hydrangeas are more gorgeous than ever, the weather has cooled down a bit, and the breeze at night is so relaxing! As a huge fan of dessert, I knew I wanted a dessert table with a few of my favorite things – delicious cake and drinks. I’m so excited to partner with Walmart to create one of my favorite summer tablescapes ever with their stunning lemon tablecloth which I absolutely adore.

I love Walmart and have been a loyal customer for years. One of my favorite things about them is they offer free two-day shipping and returns on purchases over $35. The items I ordered for my bright and cheerful lemon tablescape for summer were all delivered very quickly and efficiently. Everything I featured today is from Walmart Home. The glasses, tablecloth, dishes, beverage dispenser, cake stand, and more are well made, at great price points, and look much more expensive than they are. I can’t wait to reuse my summer tablescape essentials time and time again this summer. I’m thinking I’ll have to make a s’mores bar next!

A Lemon Tablescape Is A Must For Summer

Lifestyle expert, journalist and interior design blogger Candie Anderson of candieanderson.com celebrated her birthday in June with a lemon tablescape! It's perfect for every summer occasion.

 

Over the years I have shared my love of lemon decor, especially lemon wreaths and garlands! When I was a kid my Aunt made the most gorgeous dried arrangements, I loved them all, especially her lemon wreaths. They were so elegant, chic, and warm. I knew when “I grew up”, I wanted a lemon wreath on my front door and lemon decor throughout my home! This style is so warm and inviting. 

When I spotted this gorgeous lemon tablecloth at Walmart, I knew I had to have it. It comes in a wide array of sizes. I purchased the 52” x 52” tablecloth because this size is perfect for a small patio table or card table. I decorated my wrought iron patio table with it, and will definitely use it on the vintage table in my kitchen as well.

Here are a few gorgeous lemon tablecloths you’ll love!

 

Gorgeous Patio Tables From Walmart Home

Walmart has a wide array of patio tables in numerous styles and price ranges! I have my heart set on this outdoor wood dining table. Isn’t it fabulous? It’s perfect for dinners with the family and will also use it as a desk when I work on my laptop outside! Spending time outdoors is my favorite thing to do. I’m much happier and relaxed in nature! How about you? 

Here are a few patio tables on my wish list! 

 

Beautiful Dome Cake Stand

Lifestyle expert, journalist and interior design blogger Candie Anderson of candieanderson.com shares her beautiful Pioneer Woman milk glass cake stand.

 

I fell in love with this beautiful Pioneer Woman milk glass cake stand with a glass lid months ago. In fact, I almost bought it in jadeite green for my mom for her birthday, but that color sold out almost immediately. Thankfully both colors (mint green and milk white) are now in stock. I’ve always been a fan of The Pioneer Woman! She is so talented and her merchandise is gorgeous. I actually had a chance to interview her years ago, and she was an absolute delight! I just wish her collection was available then so I could tell her how much I adore her kitchen essentials and how often I use them.

One thing for sure is this beautiful dome cake stand is a kitchen and outdoor dining staple. It’s the perfect spot to store cakes, cookies, brownies, or your favorite dessert in your kitchen or on your patio when entertaining! Since I live in a rural area, we get a lot of flies and bugs flying around during the warm summer months. I love that this cake has a dome lid. I can keep my food safe and secure from flying insects! 

 

 

You Can’t Have A Birthday Without Candles

I’m a member of Walmart+ and ordered my white cake with buttercream frosting as well as my gold candles from the store. The cake was so moist and delicious. It looked great with the gold “Happy Birthday candles” I chose! Here are a few glam gold birthday candles that won’t reveal your age, but will still allow you to make a wish! 🙂

 

 

Classic Dishes I’ll Use Throughout the Year

Lifestyle expert, journalist and interior design blogger Candie Anderson of candieanderson.com shares her beautiful Pioneer Woman salad plates which she used to create this stunning lemon tablescape for summer.

 

This summer I was searching for a classic set of dishes that my family and I can use throughout the year. I was so happy when I stumbled on this scalloped “linen” Pioneer Woman Cowgirl Lace 12-Piece Dinnerwear Set. The dishes are absolutely beautiful. I love everything about them, especially the “embossed bead pattern.” The set comes with four bowls, four dinner plates, and salad plates. They are perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, dessert, and snacks! I plan on using them throughout the year. Bring on Thanksgiving dinner! I’m already craving this amazing bacon stuffing!

If you’re anything like me and aren’t a fan of washing dishes by hand, you’ll be pleased to know that this set is dishwasher safe!

Beverage Dispensers Are A Must For Summer

Lifestyle expert, journalist and interior design blogger Candie Anderson of candieanderson.com shares her classic glass beverage dispenser and Pioneer Woman glasses on her lemon tablescape for summer.

 

 

This great beverage dispenser is budget-friendly, functional, and efficient! It’s perfect for a farmhouse, coastal-inspired patio, or garden party. I love that it has a handle so I can carry it easily and effortlessly. I didn’t use a stand so I had it on the edge of my patio table and it worked out great. I plan on using this all summer, especially when we’re working in the garden so we don’t have to run in the house and get drinks. All I have to do is fill it with water and ice, and it’ll be ideal. This beverage dispenser is great for lemonade, water, and iced tea.

I mentioned earlier that I live in a rural area and we tend to get a lot of bugs flying around in the heat. I don’t like using pitchers when entertaining because I don’t want anything floating around in the pitcher. Having a beverage dispenser makes it so easy and it’s much cleaner!

 

 

Beautiful Flatware  

I fell in love with Mainstays stainless steel flatware sets. Walmart has many different styles to choose from and it was hard to pick just one, I love them all. The 20 piece Pierremont flatware set reminds me of the one we used when dining on birthday cake as a kid so I knew I had to have it. Not only is it ideal for outdoor dining this summer, but will be a staple for years to come.

 

 

Tried and True Pioneer Woman Glasses

 

I have had these classic Pioneer Woman embossed glasses for two years and I’m still obsessed with them. They’re available in three different colors, are heavy duty, of great quality, and are used daily. Every morning when I get up I have two glasses of water, and use these great glasses throughout the day! I love that they are dishwasher safe and easy to clean. 

 

 

Gorgeous Vase Filled With Roses

Friends, I am obsessed with vases! I truly believe one can never have enough. Lately, I have been gravitating toward large round wide mouth glass vases. This Libbey Glasswares Wide Cylinder Vase is an absolute must for those of us who love fresh flowers! We have over 500 rose bushes, and we also grow hydrangeas and dahlias. We donate flowers to local doctors’ offices weekly. I love having fresh-cut flowers in my home at all times as well.

This season you can’t go wrong with the color yellow. It is more popular than ever. I couldn’t be happier since it’s such a happy shade! My mom made me the most beautiful birthday arrangement with a variety of yellow and white garden roses and boxwood! It looks so beautiful on my lemon tablescape. I can’t wait to use this garden vase time and time again. In fact, it’s such a great vase that I plan on buying more so I can gift bouquets to friends all summer long.
