The charming courtyard behind Smithfield Cottage features a trellis adorned with jasmine, a Philippe Starck gnome for a cheeky nod to the garden gnome tradition and a long, communal wooden table where guests can congregate in this private, shady oasis. The Astroturf backyard means lower maintenance and a more sustainable design.
This beautiful table with clean, modern lines is easily adapted for the holiday with a gauzy, mummy-evocative table runner, a cute centerpiece and small votives. Even better, on Halloween this outdoor living room is a great place to gather with friends and a bowl of candy to turn the night into a grown-up celebration too.
Not a fan of orange and brown? No worries; your table's color palette doesn't have to be restricted to traditional fall colors. Instead try softer, cooler hues like the whites, pale greens and grays found on heirloom-variety pumpkins.
