One of the biggest joys of the summer months is eating outside. After a busy day, an evening spent under the stars with friends and family over dinner and wine is the perfect way to unwind. A few special touches can make it even more enjoyable – think printed linens, raffia, stoneware, striped cushions and a beautiful parasol. Invest in these luxe pieces now, and they’ll set the tone for many alfresco dinners to come.
“Use your tablecloth as a starting point. Like a good outfit hero, its prints or colours can inform the rest of your setting. Then, add layers – the more textures, the more inviting the table.”
“Have a large number of guests? You don’t need 20 of everything – just mix and match. Different prints or colours can add to the charm of a table setting.”
