Dining Al Fresco


We’re all in agreement: there are few things better than summertime dining. That feeling of being under the stars with good company at a beautiful table is one that we’d like to replicate as much as possible. And because we’re all staying home this summer, these kinds of gatherings are filling up our calendars. So whether you’re serving up a family meal in the backyard or hosting an intimate al fresco gathering, it’s time to refresh your tablescape to match the occasion. We did the work for you and outlined a few of our favorite things to create a summer table that you’ll never want to leave. Bon Appétit!
