Summer’s sinking fast and the temperatures are beginning to moderate a bit, but there is still time for outdoor dining. A couple of weeks ago, a great friend opened her beautiful home for a Rustic Chic breakfast and dinner and I had boldy suggested a luncheon to round out the season. Yesterday was the day and we had the luncheon by her beautiful pond.
I brought over a small folding table and dressed it with a crisp and white cutwork drapery panel from India and paired it with grey painted Swedish chairs and simple white place settings. The only color was a small bunch of pale pink roses in a simple glass vase. The effect was somewhat etheral with all the light shimmering on the pond. Cream of carrot soup and a light salad were served to make this an especially Rustic Chic luncheon by the pond.
