The following post is from Lisa of The Pennington Point:
Summer is the time to eat outside. Not only do you get to enjoy the great outdoors, but there are no crumbs on the floor to sweep up. But just because you eat outside doesn’t mean you can’t make it pretty.
Here are some easy ways to brighten up your outdoor table!
Pick up $5 worth of flower at the grocery store and plop them into a bucket or jar. It will perk up your table like nothing else!
Lanterns from the dollar store can take an outdoor space from picnic to party.

A simple tablecloth that’s lying around in a drawer, or just a piece of fabric or lace, can dress up your outdoor table.
Instead of chairs, try using a bench to add a touch of flair to your eating area. You might also take your dining room chairs outside for a meal occasionally.
Drinking from mason jars adds charm to any summer meal!
Use a collection you already own to bring that touch of the unexpected. Birdcages, instruments, books, sports equipment, camping gear, just look around and see what you’ve got.
How often do you eat outside?
