1 Place potted herbs
A series of potted herbs in weathered pots reinforces the informal vibe of the table setting and speaks to dining outdoors in the warmer months.
2 Add some colour
Cobalt blue gingham napkins spice up the casually laid place settings and offer a hit of bright colour to the neutral tablescape.
3 Display blooming plants
Placing a few blooming plants in inexpensive buckets around the backyard provides instant colour and texture. and using a variety like lavender also gives off a heavenly scent.
