Guest Post: Dining al Fresco!
Thanks so much to Beth & Kristy of Design Chic for guest posting today… they always find the most lovely photographs to share with their readers. I love me some outdoor eye candy….Enjoy!
With summer in full swing and scorching days giving way to balmy, romantic nights, now is the perfect time to embrace one of our favorite things: dining al fresco!
Everything Fabulous: The perfect tablecloth simply makes a table, doesn’t it? Elegantly gathered and not too fussy, this white spread makes quite the statement. Looks like the perfect proposal spot to us! Champagne anyone?
Style Me Pretty: We all like bringing the outdoors in but bringing the indoors out? Looks like fun to us!
Cindy Rinfret Design: Whether dining indoors or out, the ambience of perfect lighting can take any evening from picnic to party. No matter what the occasion, you can’t go wrong with candlelight. We think, judging from the table, this host and hostess would tend to agree with us.
Lisa Bynon Design via House Beautiful: For some, farm to table isn’t just a social movement, it’s a way of life. If the table is already in the garden, overlooking the produce on the plate, all the better.
Deborah Jaffe Photography via Domino Magazine: Even if you can’t travel to a faraway land this spring, it’s nice to know that exotic adventures can be waiting right in your backyard.
Inspire Believe: Beautiful flowers are an outdoor dining must. We love the fresh from the garden look of these buds. Nothing is too fussy or overdone.
Ashley Whitaker Design: When it comes to outdoor dining, choosing a color scheme is key. We don’t think you can ever go wrong with a nautical navy blue and white–especially if you’re near the water.
Cindy Rinfret Design: What an idyllic brunch spot. No patio is complete without a beautiful birdhouse, and this one is simply perfect.
Telegraph Magazine: Thank you so much to Emily for allowing Design Chic to be guest bloggers today! We hope you all have a wonderful day! xo Beth and Kristy
Thanks so much, Beth & Kristy! These lovely pictures are so inspiring! I can’t wait until it cools off enough for us to start dining al fresco here in Dallas!
