Entertaining // Peggy’s Picks of the Week

Summer is finally in full gear and we couldn’t be more ready to spend quality time with friends and family. That means it’s also the perfect time to share our entertaining favorites for a inviting and beautiful table setting!

The best part about this time of year is not only being able to finally feel the warmth that this season brings, but most importantly being able to spend time with our favorite people! Bring on all the parties, showers, and get-togethers. With that in mind, there are definitely some must-haves that make hosting and entertaining easier (and prettier)!

We have gathered some stylish entertaining items to create a gorgeous tablescape, many of which Peggy has on hand in her own home!

Entertaining Styling and Decor

We encourage displaying your serving ware and entertaining pieces when not in use. Perfect spots include kitchen open shelving, sideboards, or glass cabinets like the one pictured below from project Cali Contemporary.

Candles & Candlesticks + Vases

Never underestimate the power of candles as a centerpiece to complement your flower arrangements!

Some of our favorite candlesticks ever, we recommend splurging on all three profiles and grouping them together on a tablescape or mantle (like we did at Project Grandmillennial)!

Table Runners & Chargers

Table runners and chargers are a simple way to elevate a table or place setting! We love this charger & linen table runner duo from Anthropologie that do just that – plus, the table runner is available in seven colors!

The perfect serving board, this black wood piece is available in two sizes from PHI Home. A great styling option for a kitchen, as seen in Project Reserve Ridge.

From the Manufacturer: In a durable mango wood and stained in a deep black, this serving board is made for the modern day host or hostess. Impress them with your charcuterie spread, with plenty of room for culinary creativity.


Drinkware doesn’t have to be boring and our picks prove just that! We’re obsessed with these artisan crafted glassware (below from Anthropologie) or a sophisticated ribbed choice (below from Crate & Barrel).
