Outdoor Dining

The summer entertaining season is in full force and there is nothing more delicious than alfresco dining. While the food need not be complicated, there is something lovely about dressing up your outdoors to add a little glamour to your dinner or lunch event.

Take inspiration from these gorgeous images (see more on our pinterest board here)



A colourful table cloth with simple stems in bottles is a cost effective and easy way to tie together a colour scheme.



A low table with cushions is a fun way to create a relaxed Moroccan inspired dining experience.



We love this cool table runner created with brown butchers paper, masking tape and hot pink paint.






Lighting has a way of setting the mood for an evening dinner party. String lights, fairy lights, lanterns, candles in mason jars or outdoor pendant lights can be hung above the dining table to create a magical vibe


Flowers need not be expensive, even the simple hydrangea works beautifully as a centrepiece when repeated in vases up the middle of the table.



A canopy of hanging flowers and mini terrariums ties in a colour theme, perfect if you are dining under a tree or pergola.

Floral crowns and garlands are having a major moment, Lana Del Ray, Katy Perry and Kourtney Kardashian have all been spotted rockin’ floral hair pieces recently. We can’t get enough of all the gorgeous images of beautiful floral headwear and have been so inspired we even had a go at creating some of our own. Here are some of the images that have had us ooh-ing and ahh-ing…

We recently had a go at making our own floral crowns with silk flowers, wire and satin ribbon. We kept the colours light and dreamy with soft creams pinks and detailed greenery.



FC2v2 FC1v2 fc15v3The Wolf Cub make an incredible range of crowns and garlands (images below), and they can even make custom headpieces. Check out their full range here and follow them on facebook here.



FC11Confidence is the key to rocking floral headwear, channel your inner love-child and keep the rest of your outfit relaxed and floaty. Garlands and crowns looks great with beachy waves, soft dewy makeup and boho inspired accessories..
