Garden Party

Happy May Day, dear friends! I apologize for the lack of posts this past couple of days, but we’ve been traveling last minute. My husband had a work trip to Cambridge come up and Isabella (my daughter) and I decided to join in. Despite the rainy forecast, the weather was stunning over the weekend so we had tons of fun outdoors, exploring Boston and its surroundings.

Today we’re back to life as usual and I just realized it is May already!!! How is that even possible?!! Did April just whizz by?

For today’s post, I’m thinking fine dining outdoors. I gathered over time a great number of beautiful al fresco dining inspiration and it’s time I share some of it with you. Country living definitely has its perks and one of them is being able to be outside more. However, despite your location, there’s always a way to carve out some space for a relaxing, nature filled corner. Even small balconies can be transformed through clever design ideas into a veritable oasis.

In my opinion, one of the best ways to make use of a garden is entertaining outdoors! Nothing beats a fun garden party and I hope you’ll find through these images inspiration for your next garden bash. Spring is on!
