With late summer temperatures on the rise, we’re ready to cool things down with the dreamiest, airiest tablescape imaginable. Our starting point: often-overlooked milky-white ceramic fruit sculptures. Play with your food—or the palette at least—by pairing faux fruit centerpieces with their real-life counterparts: white asparagus, grapes and melons are garden-fresh works of art. Then continue the mood with towering branches studded with alabaster blooms (fluffy white hydrangeas anyone?). Check out our roundup of pearly-hued vintage centerpieces for ideas on how to bring this ethereal (and slightly surreal) look to your table.
