Table Linens

When it comes to setting up a picnic table, choosing table linens right off the bat is surely a wise decision. Because we were after an easy-going but chic country style outdoor picnic decor, choosing a buffalo plaid picnic table cloth was a no brainer to imbue a true picnic feel. After all, what’s a picnic decor without the charming checkered gingham pattern front and center, right? Thus, we have swathed a red and white buffalo plaid tablecloth on our backyard table. But to spruce up our chic picnic table decor up a notch, we decided not to settle on dressing our table with just one linen so we have paired the red and white checkered tablecloth with a dark blue faux denim polyester table runner and repurposed a rustic natural burlap chair sash as a second table runner. The riveting combination of red, white, and blue added a vibrant contrast of color with the green grass underneath and surrounding lush trees whereas the rustic jute runner has brought a bucolic textural element to the tablescape that accentuated the classy and refined appeal of our picnic table set up. If you are worried about how to secure a tablecloth to a picnic table in case the wind decided to swish around your backyard, you can always use our plastic tablecloth clips to keep your linens right where they belong saving you the hassle of searching for random heavyweight objects at the last-minute to avoid your table linens from slipping away from your backyard picnic table.

Centerpiece Decor

As soon as the base for our backyard picnic table was ready, it was time to decorate it with exquisite decorative accessories to stylishly augment our table aesthetics. Since we were aiming for a well-decorated picnic table that oozes a sophisticated flair, it was only fitting that we adorned our tablescape with a couple of glorious and unique flower centerpieces that’ll add splendor and glamour to our dining table. While florals arranged in a vase sounded like a conventional idea for our picnic table centerpieces, we ended up putting a creative spin on our picnic table flower arrangements and opted for pretty flower kissing balls in red, blue, and white hues which perfectly complemented our color palette. Moreover, we wanted to ake our outdoor dining tablescape a tad fancier, hence instead of using a vase, we have perched our plush silk rose flower balls on our magnificent gold-colored tall stands. Featuring a gorgeous flared shape with splayed base and top and a crystal clear acrylic ball in the center, our floral centerpiece riser stands not only gracefully showcased the exotic rose flower balls but the metallic gold finish and the tall sleek structure added drama and height to our tablescape.

Although the pretty floral kissing balls set on top of the gleaming gold stands were the star of the show, our end of summer picnic table lacked the glowing radiant effect to light up the space. But with the winds changing its course, using candles to brighten up our backyard picnic table was off the table. So to match our chic style outdoor table set up, we thought placing metal lanterns filled with starry string lights would be a nice scintillating addition to our tabletop decor. Exuding a soft twinkling glow, the vintage lanterns which we positioned on small white wooden boxes are surely one of the highlights of our picnic party table decorations as you can see in the video. To further add an idyllic flair to our tablescape, we decided to creatively arrange a lush artificial greenery garland entwined with fairy string lights in the middle of our table zigzagging between the floral stands and the lanterns which has elegantly tied everything together. However, if you feel that your dining table decor won’t be complete without a bunch of candles, you can choose our LED candles to illume your summer picnic table or use hurricane candle holders to protect the candle flame from sniffing out in the midst of your alfresco meal.

Place Settings

Once we were all done with our centerpieces and tabletop decorations, we moved on to our picnic table place settings. As for the dinnerware, we decided to skip paper plates and opt for posh flatware to accentuate the chic appeal of our summer picnic table. To be honest, we’ve been absolutely in love with our newly arrived white disposable dinner plates which feature an intricate gold lace design stamped on the outer rims of the round plates, and since we were looking to create elegant picnic table settings, now was the perfect time to showcase them to impart an extraordinary allure. Combining the convenience of plastic with the charismatic appeal of real china dinnerware, these classy disposable plates with metallic foil trim will also make cleanup after the picnic a cinch. To further enhance the ornate aesthetics, we have paired the dinner plates with our antique white and gold chargers and white handled silverware for that extra bit of pizzazz and oomph along with our silver stemware on the side to let our guests toast to the wonderful summer season. However, when it came to choosing napkins, we didn’t look any further than our faux denim napkins and decided to style them into cute little rose flowers to strike a perfectly cohesive look which ended up being our favorite little detail of our picnic table settings.

Additional Decorations

Although our picnic table was all dressed up, our bare chairs looked unappealing and would have been a sting in the tail. But to avoid overkill we settled on bedecking them with just some plain navy blue colored fitted chair covers for a simple but sophisticated appeal. Moreover, in order to weave in a rustic yet charming flair, we decided to hang our all natural burlap pennant garlands all around for a picture-perfect outdoor picnic decor which elevated the entire backyard set up. If you plan to set up your table under a roofed area but don’t want to miss out on the verdurous grassy appeal or you’re looking to avoid dirt and grassy stains, we strongly recommend that you lay out our synthetic grass rugs on the floor to achieve that same desired look and refreshing feel.
