I don't know why, but food tastes better when you're dining outdoors. Don't you agree? So, I love to dine outdoors. (I'll do anything to make what I cook taste better.) I started the table with a brightly colored vintage cloth that shouts "Spring".
It's easier to serve outdoors if I put our place settings on trays. This time, I used blue plastic trays. Red napkins are held in place by blue checked rings.
The blues and reds are brought together in these salad plates (Penny Lane Patchwork by Spode).
Square dinner plates are Nova Rouge by Gourmet Expressions.
I purchased these vintage flower cart glasses at an estate sale one time. I used them because they pick up the colors in the tablecloth.
A little wheelbarrow carrying a burlap bag of faux Lavender served as a centerpiece.
Have you dined outdoors yet this Spring? This is my favorite time of the year for alfresco dining. It's still a comfortable temperature outside, and the mosquitoes haven't begun swarming us yet.
Happy outdoor dining!
