Delight in entertaining can result from using your garden as a favorite dining area.

Choose a shady secluded nook, but one which will afford easy access to the preparation area. The table can be elegant with crisp linens, stemware, exquisite dishes, sterling and a crystal centerpiece overflowing with colorful blooms. Matching candelabra completes the romantic scene.

Or perhaps your special motif might be the country-cottage look. Striped or checked placemats with matching decorative tumblers surrounding colorful pottery sets the mood. Then float votive candles in a shallow bowl mingled with a scattering of interesting stones and your favorite garden flowers. This creates an engaging image.

Provide easy-to-move chairs which can be re-positioned conveniently in case mother nature does not cooperate and is a bit unfriendly.

Guests are certain to enjoy your “elegant” or “country” dining in a happy garden – rest assured!
