Summer entertaining and reinvigorating ourselves happens out of doors with fresh air and greenery – in our gardens with luscious fruits, flowers, food and friends! Today, I'm going to show you how to use your backyard & garden as a dining room.

Are you and your backyard - garden ready these summer days??
Whether we live in the city, country or somewhere in between, being out of doors feeds our souls!! Blues and Greens of all shades are such calming colors in our wild, busy world!! They are a bit of sky and garden whether used inside or out!
This week I am sharing a bit of backyard bliss…al fresco dining and “outdoor living spaces” – relaxation is on the menu!!
Dinnerware of bone china, ceramic, earthenware, porcelain, stoneware and even enamelware, melamine or acrylic can all create tableaus of fun, happiness and beauty! Select your favorite colors, designs and enjoy!
Feel free to combine antiques with today’s beautiful designs for personal settings, for all to love!
For cocktails, buffets or sit downs…casual or formal, manners, great food, drinks, beauty and attention to detail all count! Cheers!
There are many beautiful Green Dinnerware designs available, some solids in charming shades, textures and shapes…some patterned from leaves to swirls! Bernardaud Praiana or Constance are charming examples and favorites.
I am always a fan of elegance…indoors or out!
Creating tablesettings outdoors with china and crystal is so unexpected and festive!! If we move furniture and lighting outside, it immediately transports your heart and mind to another time and place…vacation vacance or not! Tres chic, non??
Modern and casual dining are naturals for the backyard and out of doors. Mixing them with rattan, wood, and bamboo add textural interest and warmth. Centerpieces can be as simple as a bowl of lemons, fresh fruit or pitchers filled with wildflowers or herbs!
Mario Luca Giusti acrylics, MacKenzie-Childs enamels, Caspari paper and Juliska are now making non-breakable designed tableware for casual, lightweight easy care use! Bamboo is even available in charming, earthy designs!
