Home visit: set the table for summertime

If you don’t have any outdoor space (or the weather lets you down!), you can still bring the feeling of summer to your table. Anne-Solange uses fresh flowers and DIY decorations. Get inspiration here.

Make your everyday table special

Fresh flowers and fresh linen make this table. Take a bunch of flowers – hand-picked or shop-bought. Don’t spend lots, the trick here is to separate the bunch into individual stems – even flowers from the garden look beautiful displayed this way! And don’t worry about finding lots of different vases – Anne-Solange uses a mix of drinking glasses, vases, old jars and pretty teacups. To make her place settings special, she adds a decoratively folded linen napkin to each.

We love to see our customers get creative with our products. Go for it! But please note that altering or modifying IKEA products so they can no longer be re-sold or used for their original purpose, means the IKEA commercial guarantees and your right to return the products will be lost.
