Simple pieces for alfresco dining

Author

Posted by , 6th May, 2016

Summer, for me, is all about eating outdoors, from coffee and croissants in the early morning sunshine to long lazy lunches and simple, relaxed dinners that, weather permitting, go on long after the sun has gone down and usually necessitate a blanket or two to drape over shoulders and the lighting of a fire pit. Having the right pieces to dress the table comes with the territory – call it rustic luxe – from simple water glasses and an elegant bowl in which to serve a simple green salad to linen napkins
