Take It Outside!

Whether it’s a casual picnic, your personal version of Dîner en Blanc, or a sandwich and cool drink in your Adirondack chair, dining outside is one of the pleasures of summer.

Somehow food eaten outdoors just tastes better, but if you want to crank your experience up a notch try these ideas:

 

 

Set the table with a pretty table cloth and use colourful dishes to serve the food.

Add light and sparkle for evening meals with solar lanterns, string lights or candles.

Keep insects out of drinks with “Bev Caps”.

Fill mason jars with bouquets of wildflowers to decorate the table.

Provide shade – set up under a tree or create shade with an umbrella.
