It's official, summer is here, the warmer sun rays are peaking through, and we’re being greeted by the scent of cut grass. The days are longer and evenings warmer, having been in what feels like the LONGEST winter I am loving spending as much time outside as possible.

Enter Al Fresco dining. Delicious food, delightful company, and flowers by the dozen.
So, grab your fave summer homewares, find a sunny spot and get creative with your tablescape. From rattan place mats, to striped tablecloths and lots of gold cutlery, eating Al Fresco has never looked so pretty…

Forget perfect cutlery placement and pristine centerpieces; instead layer colors, textures and whatever feels most natural on the day for an eye-catching tabletop.

Mix & Match

Don’t get caught up with the finer details: a playful table will create a sense of joy for everyone around it. I love my under the sea plates for occasions when I’m not taking life too seriously! These plates layer perfectly with my slogan dinner plates, it’s all about the mix and match!

Spotlight on… Glassware

Turn tippling into a fun affair with the Slogan Wine and Gin Glasses – and keep little guests happy with animal hi ball tumblers.
Try to experiment with different materials, heights, shapes and shades of accents (a gold metallic accent here, some rattan placemats there). In my mind, the quirkier, the better!

The Extras… 

It wouldn’t be a complete tablescape without all the little extras! There are sooo many ways you can inject colour and texture into your Al Fresco set up without breaking the bank! Most of my faves are from Homesense, TK Maxx, IKEA or H&M Home. Styled with the right finesse, these items go from boring to chic in seconds!
