A Rustic Chic Late Summer Supper

Late summer dining outdoors.  What can I say?  It’s a great pleasure IF you don’t have to contend with blazing heat and the omnipresent bugs which are part and parcel of the season.  But a wonderful friend kindly offered to dish up the grub on her breezy screened porch  if I’d set the table (and wash the dishes after).  And since I jump at the chance to set a beautiful table, I trucked over the china, napkins, cutlery, glassware, decanters, cachepots and a huge antique urn along with armloads of hydrangeas for the otherwise low-key supper.  The hostess’ large collection of white-painted iron tables and painted wicker furniture were the perfect foil against all the crisp white and green.   A Rustic Chic good time was had by all!

Design tip:  Who says flowers always have to be the centerpiece?
