How to Set a Tropical Summer Kids' Table

Updated: Jun 12

Not sure how many big summer parties there will be, but it's always ok to celebrate with family! Or even if you have just a few friends over, setting a fun table is the way to go to make every get together feel special. I pulled out a DIY piece I made and used it in a different way, along with some super affordable tableware to give off some tropical vibes.

PIN for later:


The table was inspired by these cute toucan plates found at the Target dollar spot, along with the $1 palm napkins. These plates would be cute for a summer kick off party or an end of homeschooling party, haha, or any time all summer long really. Everything else I had on hand. They paired great with leftover Oh Happy Day rainbow ombre plates and my blush pink charger plates. I used palm leaves as placemats, which I got last summer from Oriental Trading. Also, I used them as a table runner. My pink coupe glasses (only $8.48 for 4!) are normally for adult beverages, but since they are plastic, they are great for kids as well! I used them to hold cookie treats.

Last Fall, I made this DIY pretzel holder, which can also hold bagels or donuts, etc. Get the tutorial here. For this setting, I used it as a centerpiece by adding a pack of $2 balloons and palms, and placing my cupcakes down the center. I hope this gives you a little bit of inspiration to dive into the summer! Will you be having gatherings?
