Perhaps this might seem premature for those of you reading this in the UK, post wet and windy weather of today. That being said, I’ve been getting excited about the longer light hours that make the evenings seem like the stretch on forever and can’t wait for it to feel warmer so we can get outside for meals. There’s something special about dining outside whatever meal it is but I particularly love dinner in the great outdoors, lighting candles as daylight turns to dusk. I’ve put together a little array of inspiration for such an occasion (hopefully there will be more than one this summer). The table linen is in fact a scarf but I think it would look so lovely draped in the centre of the table or as a runner. As for those quesadilla’s… they’re calling my name with all that apricot goodness!
Even though you’re less likely to end up with a garden in London there are plenty of terraces and giant green parks for picnics. In some ways it’s even nicer, outdoor space without the work! I can’t wait to get out there!
