summer dining: gender-neutral

Summer entertaining usually brings lots of bright colors, flowers, and modern floral prints – but chances are that most guys won’t appreciate how gorgeous those fuschia plates look with the orange trellis cocktail napkins nearly as much as the girls do. So if you’re looking for a tabletop design for an upcoming Father’s Day dinner or graduation party that’s summery and festive but not overly girlie – here’s a color palette from cb2.com that would work nicely: bright blues & greens toned down with neutrals like charcoal, ebony & white.

summer dining: gender neutral {pictured above} striped lounge runner , palette dinnerware in blue and green, round rope placemats , straight-sided candleholder , taper wine glass , mudra placecard holders , and fresco vase in storm.
