Whether it’s for a birthday party, an afternoon picnic, or a dinner party under the stars—dining al fresco seems like the perfect way to spend the warmer months. Check out these inspiring photos for ideas on how to decorate the table and how to celebrate the summer in style.
Decorating the table with edibles
I love buying a bag of bright green granny smith apples or lemons to use for decorating a table. The smells are wonderful and you don’t waste anything afterward, because you can use them for baking . . .apple pie and lemon tarts anyone?
Decorating the table with nature
You don’t need to go out and buy fresh cut flowers to decorate your outdoor table, just pick some wildflowers, leaves and twigs from your backyard.
The combination of flowers, plants and lemons for decoration is inspired—and cheap.
Don’t have a flat surface to place a table and chairs on? I love this idea of using floor cushions and a coffee table for colourful and casual get-together.
