Summer Table with Glass Bottle Centerpiece

Summer Porch Decor

It’s time again for another fun Pinterest Challenge, hosted by Cindy from County Road 407! This month’s challenge is all about creating a beautiful summer table with a glass bottle centerpiece.

If you’re stopping by from Shiplap and Shells, welcome! Kim’s stunning garden near the water is the perfect place to enjoy outdoor dining, don’t you think?

If you haven’t heard about the Pinterest Challenge before, here’s how it works: Several different bloggers take the same photo, and create something similar that will work in their own homes, and with their own style. It’s so fun to see all the different interpretations of the same photo!

You can see some of my past Pinterest Challenge posts here:

Our inspiration photo this month comes from Karen at Sanctuary Home Decor. Wouldn’t you just love to sit down and dine at this beautiful table? There are so many things to love about it!

My Summer Table with Glass Bottle Centerpiece

I’m using many of the same elements as Karen for my summer table with a glass bottle centerpiece:

  • outdoor dining space
  • a variety of glass bottles
  • flowers cut from my own garden
  • taper candles
  • similar place settings and cloth napkins
  • bread board

We love eating outside almost every night when nicer weather arrives, especially because we have this screened porch off the back of the house. We can dine here in peace, without any bugs bothering us, and watch the sun set as we eat most evenings.

Karen’s inspiration photo is a lovely reminder that dining outside doesn’t have to be just for grilling or BBQ dinners with paper plates. You can still set a lovely table outside on the patio, porch, or deck, and enjoy a beautiful dinner outdoors, candles and all!

Roses for Summer Table with Glass Bottle Centerpiece

Karen used peonies in her summer table with a glass bottle centerpiece, but sadly, my peony blooms are long gone already. But my roses are producing like crazy, so I cut several pretty pink stems to use in my bottles. These are my rescued clearance roses that I planted last year. You’d never know they were marked down to only $5 and looking a bit sad at the time. They’ve definitely come back to life!

The bottles in my centerpiece are a combination of bud vases saved from my daughter’s wedding, and little vintage bottles that I gave my mom as a gift for her last Mother’s Day.

Two of the crystal candlesticks were a long-ago wedding gift from my Grandma Rose, and the other two were a gift from my mother-in-law.

The stemmed bubble glasses are vintage and were inherited from my Grandma Louise.

I love using all of my sentimental pieces to create a pretty table.

Summer is all about relaxing, slowing down a bit, and enjoying the warmer weather. Setting a beautiful outdoor dining space is a great way to do all three.
