Dining al fresco (Italian for “in the cool”) is among life’s sweeter offerings. But there’s no need to spread out a stained picnic blanket or scuffed folding chairs. We enjoy putting our best foot forward, home staging design-wise, when entertaining outdoors — from custom brick ovens to mason-jar mescluns. Keep it simple and low-key (think linens and flowers) or go the whole nine yard(s) with a sumptuous deck rug or table candelabras. Below, inspiration from coast-to-coast to recreate in your backyard.
–either way, you’ll get a fresh breath of al fresco reDESIGNed.
