Monday Moodboards - Dining Al Fresco - 29th June 2020

This week's Monday moodboard is themed around dining al fresco! Yes, this country doesn't always have the BEST summer weather to contend with but you'll always remember those late night chinwags around a beautifully set table with candles burning and the slow hum of the world going to sleep. We've been so focused on 'bringing the outside in' through our interiors the last couple of years but I also really like to bring the indoors out, making a real effort when setting a table outdoors for friends and family to sit around. I've suggested a few of my favourite recent finds below but let me know yours too!

1. Gingham Tablecloths - with ruffles - Gingham and ruffles- what's not to love. I've had my eye on one of these for a while - a gorgeous statement piece that will transform a beaten up patio table.
