DINING AL FRESCO

The simple pleasure of dining al fresco. Last night was our first dinner on the deck! While Vashti is dreaming of her upcoming ski getaway, I am so excited for warm weather, longer days and dining outside. It is truly one of our most favorite things to do...
I have been dreaming of this patio on Balboa Island since I saw it in House Beautiful. I have been on a lookout for these chairs ever since!
Love this bohemian vibe and the layered rugs.
Who wouldn't want to eat outside on Celerie Kemble's terrace? The yellow against the green grass is so bright and fresh. 
Natural wicker adds such warmth to this space. 
Look at all the hanging chandeliers...this dinner is a bit dressed up!
Metal chairs, so simple and I love them in all different colors.

Cheers to sitting outside and enjoying the weather!

    1. Right?! If I close my eyes I pretend it's the waves I hear, not the trees rustling! I have issues:)

  8. I love that you did this post! Last night my boyfriend and I were talking about how we have to get chairs and a table for our little patio area at our apartment because the weather is getting so beautiful. Perfect timing :) I am obsessed with the NYC rooftop dining area... I would die for that.
