As the summer weather heats up, so does social life. Picnics, potlucks, patio parties…and the CORELLE® LIVINGWARE™ GARDEN LACE pattern is a great way to add style to these summertime occasions.

With delicate flourishes and swirls dancing around the edges of crisp, white plates, this pattern lends a touch of tradition to any intimate gathering. Energized by a pop of fresh teal, the set is bright and versatile, making it a gorgeous addition to any summer tablescape.

Whether you’re planning a garden-inspired gathering with friends, a summer soiree or an intimate picnic for two, this playful design is ideal for elegant, upbeat entertaining.

Here are three subtle but sophisticated ways to dress up this dinnerware:

GET GARDEN CHIC

Put Your Green Thumb on Display. Whether you’re hosting an al fresco gathering, or trying to bring a touch of the outdoors inside, going natural gives you a chance to let garden style shine.

Start by dressing down your table with a no-frills cover (canvas drop cloths make surprisingly beautiful, inexpensive tablecloths). Add tiny terra-cotta pots filled with fresh herbs—they make a great, organic addition and perfect party favor, too. Mix in a bit of blue salvia or veronica for a pop of color that accents the pretty pattern on these plates. Finish with simple linen napkins for a table that lets the simplicity of the season shine.

SOUTHERN BELLE SOIREE

Gussy Up Your Girls Night! There’s nothing better than a night out with the girls…except maybe a night in! Plan a gussied-up girls night by setting a super-special, Southern-inspired tablescape with this delicate, fun and flirty pattern.

To bring out the belle in everyone, whip up individual bouquets of fresh-cut blooms. After all, making your guests feel welcome is what Southern hospitality is about. For a cute-as-can-be touch, serve drinks in personalized mason jars, complete with tied-on name tags. Don’t forget cloth napkins—a staple for any Southern table.

  • Menu Match. Bring it all together by whipping up something inspired by sweet summer flavor. For ideas on how to add fresh fruit to your table, read The Ultimate Fruit Salad.

MOONLIT PICNIC FOR TWO

Rock Your Romantic Side. What could possibly say “I love you” more than a romantic picnic for two? How about setting up under the stars? Whether you already have a special evening retreat, or you’re looking to create a new one, a peaceful moonlit picnic is a great way to bond with your sweetie.

Safely stack dishware in a backpack or picnic basket by layering the dinner plates with napkins. Don’t forget plastic champagne glasses, utensils and a blanket! Sweet and romantic with a touch of whimsy, this night will be one you remember forever.

  • Menu Match. Let your location be your inspiration. Enjoy local cuisine or whip up something special. These Date-Night Dishes are a delish (and easily packable) option.

Enjoy great food and even better company this summer when you invite CORELLE® LIVINGWARE™ GARDEN LACE to the table.
