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!

Flowers

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.

Bench

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.

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?

Lisa winds through her little Texas farm house every night, tucking in her nine homeschooled children and turning off lights. Then she scans the rooms & makes a mental list of what she wants to rearrange, restore or paint. Her husband of 27 years hangs on for the ride while she blogs about it over at The Pennington Point.
