Don't be afraid of color, embrace it! Have fun with it, mix it up. Using color is like laughing out loud. It's fun!
Mix rustic with chic. A well worn red bench looks FAB with the elegant white laced cloth and red stripes. Just because it's a picnic doesn't mean you have to use paper plates...pull out the goblets and enjoy!
Look in your junk pile for inspiration, whoda thought birdcages would look so good hangin from a tree? Throw in some votives and you've got dining by candlelight.
Who needs benches when you can use hay bales? Simple burlap is used for the tablecloth with a splash of sunflowers for color.
Don't be afraid to use your indoor furniture outside. It changes the whole feel of outdoor dining.
Paper lanterns are always festive. If you want to throw in some "JuNK SaLvaTiON" style use hanging pom poms too.
Outdoor entertaining isn't just for summer, take it into the fall...paired with a fire pit for warmth. What more could you ask for?
Now get out there and have some fun with this!!
