Last week I finally got around to hosting a dinner in my new backyard! Much thought went into creating an intimate space for my friends to dine a la fresh air. I wanted each place setting to feel formal in terms of the set up, while keeping the vibe casual and comfortable.
Since we were under the night sky, surrounded by breezy trees, and looking over the twinkling city lights, I steered away from anything that would compete with the already-beautiful atmosphere. Rather than loudly patterned plates or napkins in bright hues, I set the table with subtle succulents, simple settings, and earthy tones.
Here are some fun things you can incorporate into your next dinner party!
This was such a great night and I can’t wait to do it again. Have you hosted an outdoor dinner party lately? Share your pics in the comments so we can inspire each other!
