Thanks for joining me in my “30 Days of Summer Entertaining” series. (Scroll down to the bottom for previous posts in this series) :)

Over the years, I’ve loved picking up accent dishes from the Dollar Store or clearance isles, that can be used for salad or dessert plates, or even side plates for bread. They go so well with standard white dinner dishes.

Start with a solid tablecloth, then your white dishes, and then add bright, cheery “accent” dishes.

I bought these daisy plates for $1 from Target. They really add a touch of happiness with my daisies that are blooming right now!

You can add fresh flowers, or even snip ONE flower from your pots and add fresh greenery.

Tie it all together for a fresh and summery tablescape!

Do you use accent plates to compliment your table settings?
