Looking to make a night in extra special? Why not set up a romantic al fresco dinner date night? Pick the perfect spot on a patio or under a shade tree for an intimate open air dining experience at home.
A vintage tablecloth is the jumping off point for the tablescape. Take cues for the color palette from your inspiration piece such as a tablecloth, special dishes, or even flowers. In this instance, pairing vintage green goblets, solid white dishes, and woven textured chargers updates the vintage pieces.
Garden flower centerpiece
Pulling the subtle yellow from the flowers on the vintage tablecloth, this garden fresh centerpiece gives the setting the right punch of color. Keeping the arrangement low and wide enables for easier conversation without blocking the view. This centerpiece features Procut sunflowers, David Austin rose called The Poet’s Wife for the focal flowers, and white buddleia as the filler flower.
Simple candlesticks or votive candles are perfect for an alfresco dining area. Also, think about citronella candles to keep the mosquitoes away, and try cafe string lights above the table for extra ambiance. What better way to spend a date night at home
