evening at home

OUT BACK Fall's inviting air simply cannot be ignored with rich colorful foliage that just makes you want to be outdoors. Add the magical touch of dusk descending on the porch, and you have two heaven-sent components for a simple but special evening meal. MELLOW PLEASURES Create a setting that matches dinner plates and linens to the muted tones of nature.

Heirloom bell peppers and red pears enhance a woven basket stuffed with freshly picked flowers that add cottage charm to the porch supper. RESTFUL ENVIRONS Warm wood tones cocoon this screened porch, making it the perfect spot for sharing food and lively family conversation. Candles offer just the right light as the sun fades and…

POLISHED PARTY Try a new approach to this year’s backyard barbecue, treating dinner guests—and yourself—to a gussied-up alfresco affair. A thoughtful grouping of comfortable patio furniture gives guests a place to mix and mingle while nibbling hors d'oeuvres before the main event. A large fern, plants in full bloom, and wicker embellishments enhance the classic color palette carried from décor to tabletop. Return to this inviting space for dessert and coffee, a blissful ending to a delightful repast. CHIC COMBINATION A dreamy backdrop of plump cream pillows and a cool stone tabletop give this display a freshness that perfectly offsets the blue-and-white ceramics and crisp pinstripe linen. Understated ivory flatware flanks indigo Casafina dinner plates that anchor the serene setting. Clear water glasses keep the atmosphere light while washed damask napkins tied in…

BOUNTIFUL BEAUTY As fall’s sweet breeze casts away summer’s harsh heat, the long-awaited season of porch parties returns to the forefront. In this setting, play with colors inspired by the variegated tones of autumn apples—the stars of the show. Continue the scheme with a natural centerpiece spanning the length of the table. From dahlias and camellias to chrysanthemums and ranunculus, shades of peach, pink, ruby red, and burgundy add a delightful punch to this vignette. Display the bright blooms at staggered heights, and then achieve a more filled-in look with soft moss, green leaves, and garden-fresh herbs. NATURAL SPLENDOR Invite guests to relax in plush cushioned chairs that encourage conversation and camaraderie. With place settings in reach, friends can cozy up in the crisp comfort of fall’s glorious weather. The fireplace décor reminds visitors…

lavender allure

PROMENADE OF PURPLE A unifying theme of lavender ties together various lacy and ruffled patterns of dinnerware by Mateus, while delicate butterfly accents bring a fanciful feeling to this tablescape. Goblets and tumblers in an understated emerald hue make the perfect accompaniment to purple plates and crochet-trimmed linens. The etched elegance of rosy stainless steel flatware adds to the whimsical style of the gathering. Simple striped ribbons tied in bows become napkin rings, easy and appropriate for an alfresco spread. Like flowers, all these individual elements, lovely on their own, complement each other to enhance the radiant experience of summer in a Southern garden. GARDEN-FRESH GALA Gentle breezes and the graceful fluttering of butterfly wings fill the yard with color and activity. Recreate the ambience of a stroll through your personal verdant oasis…

SUMMERTIME CHIC Invite a friend for lunch on the patio, and let beloved china truly shine on a sunny day. No need to shy away from a vibrant palette with this setting.

DAZZLING MIX The runner, with its geometric shapes and kaleidoscopic colors, sets a stage for the easygoing yet boldly creative event. Choose modern accents like bubble glass and cobalt drinkware to draw out the graphic qualities in the tabletop décor. A contrasting effusion of red and pink Gerbera daisies supplies a burst of cheer and pops against the leafy scenery. Adding balance to the display, a chicken wire birdcage lends a rustic finishing touch that’s sure to inspire happy heart-to-heart conversations.…
