Make summer days and nights more memorable by enjoying a meal or snack with friends and loved ones al fresco. Why not savor the long summer days and cool evenings in your favorite outdoor spot. Forget about using paper plates and plastic, bring out the china, summer is way too short.
There is no better excuse to throw a party than summer. If your dining room is too small for a large dinner party than why not throw one in the back yard where there is plenty of room. Put a long table together and get creative with the table setting.
We love the look of this beautiful pergola. The vintage chairs and lush landscape is nostalgic and is a favorite spot under the shade to spend lazy summer afternoons, even a cup of coffee would taste so much better lounging on those pillows in the morning.
Why wait for a special occasion, why not have every meal al fresco. Treat your outdoor table just like your indoor one; there are so many ways to decorate the table, use colorful tablecloths and dinner plates; don’t forget to add candlelight. There is no better way to make your outdoor room glow than with the soft light of candles.
I hope this has inspired you. Do you have any ideas to share? We would love to hear from you.
