Canadian summers are so short that we try to soak up every minute of it. Using our outside spaces to gather and entertain guests is a great way to enjoy the warmer weather. Creating a beautiful table setting can be costly but you can save money by thrifting. It may even leave you with some extra money in the budget to get a nice bottle of wine or a decadent cheese to enjoy.

When decorating outdoor spaces you can go with a more neutral table setting to let the beautiful colours of a landscaped yard stand out or you can have some fun by adding in some gorgeous colour to accentuate your space. One of the colour combinations I am loving right now is green and blush pink. Here are a few photos that I am inspired by.

I stopped by my local Ottawa Salvation Army thrift store to see what I could find that would work with my colour scheme. Here’s what I found:

One pro tip to help you visual when trying to pull your look together is to use a table at your thrift store to set up your place settings. By doing this, I was able to try out different items and see what worked best for the look I was trying to achieve.

I love these thrifted pieces that I found! By adding a linen tablecloth, silverware and some gorgeous peonies in the blush vase you have created a stunning space on a budget. Next time you are looking to decorate, make sure to hit up your thrift store! Happy thrifting!
