Setting A Beautiful Table For The Outdoor; Dining Al Fresco

5c3b4fd8694725f7af6b12251073a8b8Make 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.

c6efcc43889863ab9399e26d5cc60856There 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.

I hope this has inspired you.  Do you have any ideas to share?  We would love to hear from you.

This display of blue and white pottery and tile is a conversation starter, and is an easy way to add a cobalt blue accent.  It’s also always so nice to display a collection.f73e7eb49d591372abe08dc0c362f937
