We've had some lovely weather recently and it inspired us to host an alfresco dinner party in our backyard.
I decided on an late summer/early fall vibe and created a tablescape with a pear theme adding faux pears and dried floral stems to the centerpiece.
We invited two other couples over and I set the table in our backyard gazebo.
The place settings were kept simple with a charger, dinner plate and napkin. Faux pears became the perfect placecard holders.
I used my copper flatware and this new green stemware I recently found at HomeSense. I only had 4 of them so the place settings on the ends of the table got a different glass.
A beige tablecloth was topped with a brown runner and green placemats.
The centerpiece was created by using a footed tray and filling it with faux dried floral stems, pears and a glass votive holder.
I also added string lights which added to the ambiance as the evening wore on.
Another glass votive holder filled with small faux pears was set on each side of the tray in the middle.
We have been slow to start entertaining again after the two year hiatus but it was wonderful to get together with friends after so long.
This is a hastily taken (blurry) pic as I was busy visiting but Mr Delight prepared us a yummy meal of seafood linguini.
I'm hoping our lovely fall weather continues and we can enjoy some more alfresco meals before the seasonal chill sets in.
Are you looking forward to fall or holding on to summer?
Thanks for visiting!
