Al Fresco Dining ~

Entertaining | Summer Inspiration

Today I am dreaming of al fresco dining. I just love it when the air is still warm at night (dear sun, we miss you), the bbq is fired up, some yummy wine is uncorked and sitting around the table with friends and family...ah! And as always, the more the merrier.

It makes me smile. 
Here are a few photos that do the same. 

I love the casual elegance and rustic touches.

How about you? Do you dine al fresco when you can?
We have more rain in our forecast, but a girl can dream right?

My hubby is not a fan of eating outside, Chelsea. He is a bug hater. We've been having so much rain here that I haven't had a chance to get outside and clean our outdoor furniture! I guess I should be glad that I at least got it all out and in place!

I love eating outside. The food always seems to taste a little better!

I LOVE these pictures. I think we have similar taste! *waiting for my 'Restoration Hardware' themed backyard, but sadly it's been too rainy and we'll need 'bigger plans' then 1st thought! Someday though!!
thanks for posting!

I love the first photo! I can't wait for sunny summer. We have been playing dodge the rain/hail to use our grill outside.
