Dining | Al Fresco

This 70 degree August in North Carolina has me taking full advantage of our screen porch. 
One of my favorite things to collect is pretty vintage china. One of my favorite patterns, Blue Willow, is easy to find and really affordable. Instead of splurging on flowers, plant a succulent centerpiece and enjoy it into the fall. I already have rattan chargers, gold flatware and string lights. I am dying to add this ticking stripe placemat to the mix. 

Now I just to work on my cooking skills....


  1. You can always cater at the last minute, it's much harder to find pretty tabletop items in a pinch :)

  2. I've been wanting to make a little succulent garden for our patio. So cute.
