dining alfresco

The picnic season has officially begun! Here are a few ideas for decorating an outdoor table in style...and on a budget!
Reuse, Recycle, Repurpose

Use what you have...

I removed the wax residue from old candles
and created this garden inspired glass hurricane.

Place a votive sized cup inside a 3 wick candle holder.
Fill the gap with moss and add a candle.

Layer mix and match green Transferware.

For an uncomplicated but dramatic centerpiece start by gathering a basket, pots, bottles, garden cuttings, small plants and moss.

Fill the basket with plants and cuttings...

Fill the gaps with moss and voila...

Upcycle old garden items like this metal sprinkler
into a candle holder!

Even Pea is amazed at how good the table is starting to look...

Dress your outdoor tables with the same attention to detail
that you give your indoor settings...

I hope you are inspired to dine alfresco this evening!
