Spring Al Fresco Table Setting Ideas



I'm feeling just incredibly energetic and inspired these last couple of weeks, and surely this fabulous Spring weather that we've been having plays a huge part in motivating me. That...and plenty of time outdoors soaking up the fresh air! 

With the holiday weekend coming up, today I'm sharing a table setting...


...that I did out in our garden a couple of weeks back for a dessert gathering. I hope that you find some inspiration for your weekend...


Weather permitting we just love to dine outdoors and so do our friends and family...


We generally don't do anything fancy with food, and setting the table with china and silver makes even the simplest of meals so special...



 White flowers blend with any table setting...


I love white not only in my home decor, but in setting a table...as it's so versatile and can be used for a simple dessert party to a bridal party...


 The vintage dishes, stemware and flatware were all yard sale finds from the past...


Antique cut glass compotes filled with fresh fruit and sprinkled with blue sugar dots...



 With Easter coming up I found some pastel marshmallows and sprinkled them on the table for the guests, and for color...

 


Thanks so much for stopping by and as always I hope that you can incorporate some of what I share into your own decor...

Thank you Ann. The tablecloth is from Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Couture...and is actually a bed duvet used as a table covering:-)
