Al Fresco

It may be September but we still seem to be graced by such glorious weather that I intend on making the most of it. It won’t be long until autumn comes along and we’re greeted by the burnt hues of the season, but until then, I am making the most of having relaxing dinners outside with friends and family.

Here are a few lovely images that I have found to act as inspiration when laying the table and for creating the perfect evening setting…

Table Style

There is nothing more satisfying than creating a well laid table for festive parties. When out walking, it’s easy to pick up inspiration for styling the perfect table, and vases of winter foliage dotted along the centre of the table or fallen branches can add instant glamour to the setting.

I love to tie ribbon to the stems of wine glasses and roll napkins up with brown string – all of these touches are inexpensive to achieve and can be used over again, what ever time of year.

Happy Thursday!
