Hi friends ! Welcome back to the blog! Today i’ll be sharing with you a summer tablescape that will have you feeling like you are on a tropical vacation with out leaving the comfort of your home . Temperatures are rising here in my area , and I have summer refresh on my mind. Today i’ll be sharing with you my breakfast table styled for summer.

Walmart had everything I needed for my summer escape like this gorgeous planter I used for a tropical theme floral arrangement.

I filled it wit gorgeous faux orchids, and a few faux palm leaves . What I love the most about this arrangement is how affordable each stem was! Not to mention the free store pickup option I used . Walmart gives you free shipping on orders $35 straight to your doorstep .You can also use free store pick up like I did on this order if it qualifies .

Ive linked everything I used for my summer tablescape bellow . I just love the teal cups I choose from the Pioneer woman line .I also picked up these amazing salad plates , drink dispenser , nesting bowls , and kitchen towels all from the same line.

I finished my tablescape off with these beautiful neutral better homes and gardens placemats ,and dinner plates ! Now tell me what do you think ? My family loves the change of scenery here . I hope you do too. Thanks again for stopping by .
