Starting now, on most days we’d prefer to savor our meals outside. For elevated yet approachable ideas on how to turn the park, patio, pool, field, beach, or backyard into a magical dining oasis, pore over Pinterest board “Al Fresco Dining” by Kelly Oshiro. As a California-based prop and editorial stylist, Kelly has an eye for entertaining, especially under the sun, and it certainly shows in her 84 images (and counting).
If you have a proper table, get inspired with all kinds of elegant ways to deck it out with table linens and simple centerpieces. If your setup is a little more makeshift, the board has you covered here too. Rugs, tablecloths, cushions, poufs, and temporary tented areas are all among the stunning solutions for outdoor gatherings. Grab a straw hat and your prettiest picnic basket and head to “Al Fresco Dining” to kickoff your outdoor soirée-planning.
