What would summer be without dining in the Green Outdoors?? Today, I am celebrating Garden Green...Glorious Green!
There is simply something so exciting, romantic and invigorating about dining outside!
Whether we are enjoying a café in New York or Paris, a garden in California, Connecticut or Italy; enjoying a meal in the fresh air is lovely! It even aids digestion, while feeding our senses!!

My very first apartment – a charming attic really, 22 Garden Street in Cambridge Massachusetts, was actually painted white with Kelly Green trim!! I was so enthralled – inspired by Washington’s hostess Deeda Blair’s dining room, I absolutely had to live with this vibrant coloration!!
Even today, I have Garden Green as a special Pinterest board and live green plants in every room in my home!
We drink Green too!! Green Grasshoppers, Green Mary’s and, of course, the very healthy Green Tea…cookies and delicate ice cream too!!
International Designer Carlos Mota has devoted his entire, sumptuous book to this energetic hue!!
Green is beautiful on any table…and in every home!! Plants, veggies, fleurs…love them all!!
It brings everything to life!! Mottahedeh, Bernardaud…are all fans of fabulous Green and White – indoors or out!!

When you create your summer tablescapes, have fun ~ with dinnerware of fruits, veggies and all. Interjecting a few antique pieces adds a bit of history, interest and romance. Maybe a vintage icebucket, pitcher, vase or linens.
Bordallo Pinheiro from Portugal and Tory Burch’s Dodie Thayer Collections have whimsical, colorful recreations of cabbages, kiwis, lettuces, tomatoes and watermelons too!
Enjoy with creativity and many smiles!! Cheers to Garden Green!! xoxo MMK
