Orange is a color that is often left out of tablescapes and table settings. It can be a fun color to use — as it enhances the colors of food in addition to being a happy and bright color.
I like to use orange with whites and greens in late spring through summer. Then I use orange with browns and rusts in the fall. (The fun salad plates were a gift from my brother-in-law, Brad. Love them! They are also great at Halloween with black napkins.)
With outdoor entertaining, I like to add coordinating pillows on some of the chairs (usually the two end chairs). This adds color and comfort. The 20″ square pillows work well with our patio furniture. I tend to browse places like TJMaxx (pre-summer season for outdoor pillows) and Pottery Barn & Restoration Hardware sale bins (after holidays). I have extra 20″ pillow inserts that I keep on hand. Add a pillow cover/sham — and you create a coordinated look. If I find a really great deal, I buy extra pillow shams for our chaise lounges.
Gotta love orange! At least I do…
