the sweet escape

What does the notion of a summer escape mean to you? Is it a beach vacation? A glamping trip? A cottage in the mountains? Or maybe, quite simply, it’s a few uninterrupted hours puttering in your own backyard. The concept is basic, wherever your happy place happens to be: The Canadian Oxford Dictionary defines escape as “a temporary relief from reality or worry.” Those seven words hit the nail on the head, don’t they? We all know that we need to get away from the day to day sometimes and find some peace. The fact is, it’s good for us. And when you combine that feeling of bliss with summertime, well…no more words are needed. This issue is devoted to that idea of short-term (or long-term, as the case may be) relaxation,…

a taste of summer

Tabletop tips Start with a neutral background. We went with a solid white picnic blanket and added cushions for seating. The blue woven table runner captures the aesthetic of the scene. Use an assortment of complementary summery colours in several different tones. The jumping off point for this setting was the floral motif of the plates; we incorporated most of its hues in the other elements on the table. Remember the whimsy. Summer picnics should feel informal and spur-of-the-moment, so add in pieces that reflect that vibe. MORE FUN FINDS FOR A SUNNY STATE OF MIND.…
