There’s nothing better than a late summer evening out on the deck, and a tablescape with candlelight and fresh cut flowers from the garden.
Late Summer Tablescape Features
You’re in for a treat my friend! My four fabulous friends and I are sharing our late summer tablescapes, with one last hurrah for summer. Make sure to check out these amazing bloggers at the end of my post for much more inspiration than you can even imagine.

When creating this late summer tablescape, it was more about the perfect lighting, fresh cut flowers and outdoor view for me, rather than the dinnerware.
The dahlias, zinnias, cosmos, and bee balm were all freshly cut from my flower garden. I decided on a larger arrangement for the center of the table, with smaller glass bottles surrounding it. Tea light candles give the table that extra special touch.
I’m always been inspired by all the gorgeous tablescapes I see on Pinterest and Instagram with the most amazing outdoor settings. I really can’t believe it took me so long to pull a table like this together before now. This is my first attempt. At least I did it before the end of the season!

Nature as the Backdrop
I couldn’t have planned the gorgeous pink-streaked sky and glimmering water any better on this late summer evening. I couldn’t tell you why, but even the mosquitos stayed away!
It was a perfect late summer evening, with a candlelight tablescape on the deck. I’m not going to lie to you. After I took all the pictures, I cleared away two of the place settings and had a romantic dinner for two with my husband. My hope is to recreate this tablescape next summer for our friends. It will be so nice to entertain again. But until then, I’m ok hanging out with just my hubby and our pups!
