Al Fresco Dinner Party

 

By Kaitlin Chad

There is nothing better than spending time outdoors and there is no better time than summer to start moving your dinner parties outside “Al Fresco” style. These blue plates from Target were the perfect pop to the jewel tone flower centerpiece that our editors made themselves (from grocery store flowers no less). We added orange napkins to tie in the color detail on the table runner. Keep your outdoor set up super simple by skipping a tablecloth and sticking to placements or a table runner. Use plenty of bright colors and serve light summer flavors!
