we’re finding every excuse we can to embrace the season and spend more time outside in the sunlight.
Dining alfresco is one of our favorite ways to get in the summer mood, and we’re excited to share a few of our favorite tips for creating the perfect outdoor tablescape.
Begin by grounding your space with outdoor dining pieces that bring the feeling of the indoors outside with thoughtful designer details. When we design our outdoor pieces with McGee & Co., we’re always considering what each piece looks like from every angle so that no matter how it’s oriented, it will look intentional.
Table linens soften any entertaining look, but they are especially important in an outdoor dining space to bring in a feeling of warmth and comfort. While we love a traditional full-table covering, don’t be afraid to forgo it and opt for a runner for a more casual approach.
Bringing your favorite indoor servware outside instantly elevates an occasional alfresco tablescape look. When styling for an outdoor scene, we love incorporating a few bowls for serving sides or fruit, a breadboard for placing bread or dishes, and a pitcher for water or lemonade.
Last but not least, add some height to your tablescape look with a vase and your favorite florals or clippings from your yard to tie in the surrounding greenery.
