Sure, the people-watching may be limited, but your options are endless. This collection of fabulous ideas is sure to awaken your appetite for style. Whether you decide on cozy casual or grand garden, indulge in a little alfresco dining of your own this summer!
Table for Two
Take your morning coffee out of the kitchen and enjoy a little serenity designed for two. These spaces serve up entirely different styles but offer all the luxury in quiet, outdoor spaces. Loving the earth tones, wood and iron elements, and abundant greenery in the first space. Makes you feel like you're on vacation, doesn't it? ........Tuscany, anyone?
Slip (your furnishings) into something more comfortable. Camouflaging those old wood chairs and chipped tables with the magic of colorful fabrics will always make a positive impression.
Be creative. If traditional outdoor furnishings are not in your possession, hunt around. Just look at the loveliness vintage finds and heirloom treasures can create.
If you are lucky enough to live on the water, a folding table and chairs is easily transformed to the "finest-table-in-the-house" at your own romantic bistro!
A Family Affair
The best part of dining outdoors is sharing a little quality time with family. Make family time more special by sharing a meal together outside. Create warmth and unity by using an umbrella as a focal point. Leave it open even after the sun goes down and accessorize with lighting for a more intimate feel.
And let's not forget what fun can be had at "Porch Parties". No matter the size, there is always room for more at the table and no one ever feels cramped! Think about it... I bet everyone can pull up some hilarious memories from impromptu "porch parties". Good times. Plan some.
