Vintage outdoor dining

Date posted: February 24, 2014

With Spring fast approaching and we are looking forward to vintage outdoor dining, it seems that we need those warm summer evenings for an alfresco supper.

There is a certain charm about vintage outdoor dining and a sense that it is really relaxing and is not so formal. A casual approach to setting your vintage outdoor dining experience or  party, works well with mixed cups and saucers, mums old jug and nan’s teapot a real country living spectacle.

At Live Laugh Love we have an abundance of decorative three tier cake plate accessories to garnish the outdoor feast.

Cake plates with three, two and single tiers will give height and brilliant presentation.

Use old and new bottles, mix and matched colours and fill with your favourite blooms from the garden, this creates a wonderful centre piece for the vintage outdoor dining table and adds a dash of shabby chic.

Use old style luggage labels or tags for the seating arrangement. We love bunting whether it is bought or hand made it has a real nostalgic look and really promotes the garden party.

A Selection of substantial twigs from the garden placed into a plant pot or vase and pinned with Vintage outdoor diningblack and white photos of past memories makes a great memory tree. Out Door LED lighting is great to create a warm atmosphere, use a few strings of our drops or heart and garnish the table or around the area.

Think vintage with this theme …remember those street parties and a sense of community. Making do and mend was a way of life. One part of having a great out door dining experience or party is about the fun and celebration of the event and who is with us and remembering the great people that have left us.

This style is very feminine and is great for a bedroom or boudoir.Try to use some antique pieces of furniture that you can purchase form local shops, markets or auction houses. These vintage pieces may need a little TLC to bring them back to life, but the rewards are well worth it.
