In this tablescape by @homeofmalones, she uses sliced open oranges to create a table runner that adds depth, texture and color to this bright and fragrant dining experience! Pair with our Fruit Grove Paper Placemats to tie the table together.

Using a plant as a centerpiece can quite literally bring your table to life! Try this yourself with a small lemon tree, and add blue elements to cool down the brightness of the yellow. Here @pineapplesonparry used our Blue Chinoiserie Vase Wraps to complete the look!

Don’t feel like dealing with fruit? It doesn’t matter! Try adding subtle citrus elements like embroidered cloth napkins to add pops of refreshing color to your table. Molly Boyd and Sarah Tucker used our Lila Chinoiserie Placemats by Camilla Moss to compliment the peachy hues.

For an easy clean up, try laying out your citrus on a tray and placing in the middle of your table for a bright and beautiful centerpiece! Molly Sohr used our Coral Paper Placemats to add to the beachy feel of this summer table.

If you plan on hosting a lot of guests, try placing a small orange or other citrus fruit by each of their plates to add color throughout the table. When styling with citrus, you can never go wrong with our Fruit Grove Paper Placemats!

Place a handful on lemons (or other citrus) in a bowl to add color without having to go through all of the work. They could even be fake for all your guests could know! Grace Hamlin pulled this summer BBQ look together with our April by Camilla Moss Paper Placemats!
