hydrangea and mercury glass tablescape

July is hydrangea season! Hydrangeas are one of my all time favorite flowers and they are in full bloom! We have several varieties in the back yard and I brought some in to create a simple but beautiful centerpiece for this summer tablescape.

We love to eat outside during the summertime but it’s been blazing hot around here so I set the table in the kitchen. We can still view the beautiful backyard but remain cool inside. It has been crazy temps reaching into triple digits for days in a row. CraZy!!!

A line of mercury glass vases are casually lined down the center of the kitchen table spilling over with pretty hydrangea blooms. Mercury glass votives are also sprinkled around the table creating a pretty glow.

The plate stack has an accent glass plate to tie in with all the Mercury glass pieces. The dinner plate is a white Wonki Ware plate, which you can read all about here{my latest dish obsession}. The plate stack is grounded by willow chargers, which I picked up years ago at Pier1 back when the stores were still around.

The plates are topped off with well worn April Cornell napkins, using assorted vintage silver napkin rings. Mother-in-law M got us the napkins when we were newlyweds so the napkins could also be considered vintage as well. Lol. I just love how the muted and faded colors in the linen napkins compliment the hydrangeas.

The flatware and glassware are also both vintage. The water goblets we inherited from my parents and the wine glasses we inherited from my parental grandparents. I love the European scale of the wine glasses with the delicate etching.

The table is pretty simple and sparse on purpose to let the hydrangeas shine!

These hydrangeas just make me so happy! Do you have flowers in your yard you clip and use to decorate?

These are always a favorite of mine to clip and use around the house. Here they are in a basket to greet our guests at the front door, mingled with some of the limelight hydrangeas.

They have also decorated many rooms inside our home, including the dining room here.

I love these hydrangeas in my green bottle collection{through the seasons – green bottle collection}. This is always fun to arrange and they bring a brightness to the kitchen, which I love and instantly makes me smile.

Not only do these hydrangeas grace our home when they are perky and fresh but also when they are dry and become a bit moody.

That’s a teensie weensie bit of Fall inspo since I noticed some stores are starting to turn merchandise over to Autumn. But I am SO not ready and wasn’t I just talking about triple digit temps? SO on that note, back to our regularly scheduled program.

I hope you found the hydrangea and mercury glass tablescape with all the summer feels inspirational and you are enjoying the lazy days of summer.

In the summertime, when the weather is hot, you can reach right up and touch the sky.”
