For the last few days, all I seem to do is day dream about hosting a lovely brunch, or dinner with close friends in the backyard, sitting under some flickering lights in lanterns. Keep in mind that it has been cold, rainy and grey around here. That could be the reason, and the fact that I am REALLY ready for spring to really sprung, not just in theory. I miss the warm summer evenings and the long works and hikes we take as a family.
Whether you are in the same predicament as me and don't have the nice weather yet to have the al fresco dining, or are the lucky ones in a sunny part of the world - these outdoor spaces can serve as good inspiration for your gatherings now, or later. I love the idyllic settings. It's the kind of space you can graze over a meal for hours with good company, and not even realize that a minute has passed.
Even with it's modern styling this spaces feels real chill and relaxed. Love the hanging lanterns, I feel that lanterns are just a staple of an intimate outdoor seating/eating area. They add an intimacy like nothing else.
