This modern outdoor dining area features a painted gray wood plank table complete with vibrant red placemats and white dishware. Clear glass bowls with bright yellow lemons and white candles are used as an easy yet eye-catching centerpiece, creating a festive yet laidback outdoor dining experience.
At a large table (this one seats eight) consider using several small centerpieces rather than a single grand one. Here, a glass bowl filled with crabapples creates a low centerpiece while silver cups brimming with peach rosebuds add color and interest to each place setting.
