Summer is all about dining al fresco with great food and beautiful tabelscapes. Also, lets be real, we Chicagoens only got 90 days of summer so we make sure to be outdoors as much as possible. One easy way to enjoy the summer is to eat your home cooked meals outdoors, even if it is just your morning cup of joe. However, if you have the opportunity to host a small gathering al fresco then use your surroundings to decorate your table. Last weekend I hosted our extended families fathers day, you can read all about my outdoor barcart here and here, so I wanted to make sure our tablescape was stellar to celebrate all the "dads" in our family.
Using as much as I have in my yard and home I pulled something together.
