With a picturesque backdrop, little is required to create a party setting. Many parks or outdoor venues provide picnic tables and long benches or chairs. To add glamorous touches to your picnic, cover the table with a colorful fabric like this suzani print and layer it with a solid white tablecloth. A Moroccan wedding blanket or cozy throw on each bench creates a warm, comfortable place for guests to dine.
Furnishing an outdoor room can quickly add up, but using creativity and some elbow grease will save your budget. "Visit flea markets and find inexpensive furniture to paint or otherwise repurpose," designer Lourdes Dumke says. Colorful spray paints are great for plastic furniture and don't require priming. Dress up other pieces with slipcovers and outdoor fabric pillows.
A touch of metallic around the holidays always adds a festive vibe. Bring some sheen to your fall color scheme by introducing dishware with metallic rims. While silver is always more popular, gold and brass are great options for adding warmth.
Wreaths are excellent sources for adding color and texture to holiday tablescapes. Consider placing vessels inside coordinated wreaths for added layers of visual interest throughout the table. Here, a dessert is elevated to new heights with a twig and berry wreath placed around its vessel.
