LOOK FOR NATURAL ELEMENTS
Opt to include lots of natural elements like wood, ceramic, fire and stone. These items might be simple but collected they pull together the intimate, easygoing feeling.
MAKE YOUR WEEKNIGHTS FEEL LIKE WEEKENDS
Don’t reserve the weekend feeling for just a couple of days. Challenge the norm with a late night swim, a sunset nature walk or have dessert outdoors. Go ahead, add a little Saturday to your Wednesday.
MIX TEXTURES AND STYLES
Mixing textures and styles can add excitement and balance to your table. Mix on your own or find pieces that have multiple elements on their own. When in doubt, a simple flower arrangement instantly adds color and texture to any tablescape.
DEFINE YOUR AREAS
Create cozy conversation areas by setting up groups of chairs and tables, each marked with a few torches, table torches or citronella candles. By designating specific areas, you make your backyard more digestible to the eye and allow different areas to become different destinations. Keep styles similar or change up the vibe of each nook to make it a new experience.
