Welcome friend! I'm so glad you have joined me here at Dreaming of Homemaking. I like to think of this blog as my journal, full of ideas that have helped me turn my house into a warm, welcoming home. My hope is that you too find this little piece of the internet a place to gather ideas and find inspiration.
What is better than spending time outdoors by the fire, dining along side it!I am going to share with you some easy summer dining tips so keep reading!
When planning an outdoor dining experience just remember for something to be beautiful it doesn’t have to cost a lot or be a ton of work. I will be sharing my tips, plus I have joined with 14 other bloggers and they are sharing recipes, tips and ideas for your summer outdoor dining experience at the end!
Find some mason Jars, glass jars, vases or anything you have on hand to put flowers in. If you have fresh flowers in your yard pick them, if you are like me and don’t you can order some to be delivered with your groceries or go to the local flower truck/farmers market!
Adding any type of lighting always helps! We use these solar string lights from HERE. If you don’t love the string lights you can add candles, or little fairy lights to your table. Having this outdoor fireplace or any type of firepit always adds some more ambiance too!
Honestly that depends on you and your guests. We like to start out with cheese and crackers.We typically will do BBQ – you can make that as laid back our as casual as you want. In the summer we always end with s’mores!
I love these dishes from ARHAUS, the melamine plates are a favorite and the glasses we use daily. I found this copper silverware and its held up so great!
Isn’t it amazing how a simple tablescape can make such a difference!
These lights really set the mood, I love that they are solar powered so they go off each night. You can find them HERE.
Now to cozy up this whole space this fireplace has been such a nice addition, while our Polywood table set looks as new as the day we got it and will last a lifetime. I hope you enjoyed my tips and make sure to check out these amazing blogs with all of their ideas and recipes!
Check out these amazing posts for so much inspiration! Now I am planning our next event – perfect timing with my family coming in!
