Last weekend, my hubby was home from New Mexico and we decided that we would treat him to a special dinner. We love eating outside and I have a few special tricks that make dining outside easy.
1. Simple rosemary plants on the table make a beautiful centerpiece during the spring and summer.
2. Near the door to the backyard, I have a ready supply of plates, tablecloths, chargers and flatware. All yard sale finds.
3. The $24.99 wisteria I planted two years ago, provides the shade over the table to make it feel comfortable no matter what the temperature.
4. The light above the table holds tea lights, along with the lanterns on the table. No darkness will end any dinner in my home.
I can set a beautiful outdoor table in under 15 minutes. Less time than it takes to grill a steak!!!
