Set a pretty summertime table using inexpensive lemon yellow plates from Dollar Tree paired with chinoiserie blue and white china.
How often can you purchase an entire set of dishes for the cost of a single place setting?
When I saw these on-trend and oh-so-pretty lemon dishes at the Dollar Tree, I splurged on the entire set of dinner plates, salad plates, bowls and mugs. It was $16 well spent!
For a pretty summer tablescape, I paired the inexpensive lemon yellow dishes with blue and white china and some of my thrifted chinoiserie pieces.
It was a quick change-up from the patriotic July 4th tablescape, as simple as switching out a few accessories and linens.

For each place setting, I layered a round woven mat with a blue and white charger, a lemon plate, a yellow gingham napkin and a lemon bowl. (I found the oversized Toyo blue and white plates at an estate sale.) I used hammered gold flatware from West Elm. (You can find a similar set here.)
Besides, you don’t have to switch out everything to create an entirely different look for your tablescape.
To change up the centerpiece from the July 4th tablescape, I added a few faux lemons and lemon salad plates. The lemons were from Kirklands earlier in the season, but you can find similar ones here. Or just use real lemons.
Chinoiserie oyster shells would have been a nice addition, too. They’re great salt cellars.
A tablescape this bright and summery calls for some citrus-flavored cuisine.
These recipes would pair well with the lemon yellow tablescape:
