As warm weather will soon come to an end, most of us want to savour our time spent outdoors as often as possible. And what better way to make the most of the last month of summer than long, relaxing meals al fresco?
If you’re looking to create a joyful outdoor lunch or dinner for your guests, this charming table setting by Valdirose will give you plenty of inspiration.
MAKE YOUR TABLE INVITING WITH EARTHY TABLE LINEN
REFRESH YOUR DINING TABLE WITH A SIMPLE FLORAL ARRANGEMENT
Instead of buying the perfect bouquet of flowers, go outside and look around at what’s there. Some fresh blooms you can find in your yard, a vase of wildflowers from your area on even just a bit of green will work beautifully.
KEEP YOU GUESTS COOL AND PROTECTED FROM THE SUN
When it gets a bit too hot and sunny, you might want to consider a shelter to keep everyone comfortably cool. You can place a parasol or pergola over the table or even move the entire dining set under a tree for natural shade.
SERVE SEASONAL, LOCALLY GROWN FOOD
No need for anything fancy when you’re surrounded by the outdoors. Simply dress up your table with colorful foods, making choices based on what’s seasonally and locally available. For instance, you can roast your favorite meet or fish with some herbed vegies, compose a salad of fresh greens, and top it off with a simple homemade desert.
We hope you enjoyed these tips to create a simple yet elegant al fresco table setting.
