10 Favorite Outdoor Dining Spaces

With Spring finally sprung, now is as good a time as any to take that lunch or dinner outside. And with a brand new (potential) house on the brain, I’m dreaming of beautiful outdoor spaces. These are a few of my favorites …

The cafe chairs, the chunky wood slat farm table, the black and white graphic striped outdoor rug, the bougainvillea it’s all just right. (Rue Mag)

Dinner Party Gatherings

Maybe it’s that I’m dreaming of our trip to Italy as I write this, but I’m so inspired by all of these outdoor dining parties, set atop rustic tables, full of fresh salads, sliced meats and cheeses, and plenty of bread.  Traveling to Europe always has me re-thinking the way we live, eat, entertain, and just enjoy.  Don’t you think it’s high time we bring back dining al fresco with friends?

The Perfect Outdoor Dinner

I love every inch of this photo.  Whether a rehearsal dinner or the wedding party itself, I am a huge fan of an intimate outdoor dining experience, and this one is unmatched.

Home Tour: Maria of Dreamy Whites

Though it should come as no surprise, bloggers always have some of the most styled, elegant homes.  I on the other hand, spread my little creative outbursts across office/craft-room (that my husband put so much hard work into … and I now litter with ribbon, glitter, stamps, needles, office files, sandwich bags, my mind), kitchen counter, dining room table, coffee tables, nightstand, and bursting out of every drawer.

Back to the bloggers with the elegant homes …

stephmodo featured Maria’s home – the blogger behind Dreamy Whites – and it is just lovely.  Maria lives on a horse ranch in Northern California, where her husband is a professional trainer.  She’s transformed her home into a French-inspired farmhouse, all awash in soft whites.  I’m thinking of asking to move in.

For the full feature and all of the I-need-a-vacation-inducing pictures, visit stephmodo.
