Warm summer days call for dining alfresco! And what better way to celebrate the season than with a coastal-inspired tablescape with gorgeous citrus accents—no matter your location. Blending a sea of pale blue or green plates with warm, cream-colored goblets and linens offers a subtle nod to a serene seaside experience without feeling “beachy.”

Placing a few shells at each place setting, an array of dried coral on the table, and a fishbowl full of a few bright shells helps set the coastal scene.

Skip the tablecloth or patterned runner and play off the natural wooden textures. Woven jute placemats, wooden napkin rings, and wood-accented flatware feel natural and balanced at this table.

To add a punch of color, opt for a floral centerpiece featuring sunset orange.
