Table Decor Ideas for Dining Alfresco begins with inspiration from nature. Shades of green creates a natural color scheme for this easy to entertain table scape. A table set for four features brown paper as a table runner, chalk painted names at each place setting, fresh rhododendron chargers, pocket folded green napkins with silverware and a colorful main dish as the center piece on a wooden log slice.
At each setting hand-crafted rhododendron leaf rounds serve as the charger for the white dinner plate and solid green napkin fold. Eating utensils are held together in one place inside the simple folded napkin that compliments the living green charger. Assigned seating can be noted with individual names written with a chalk paint pen.
As an appetizer and pretty centerpiece, Caprese Galette is served on a large food-safe log slice. The tomato themed rustic tart provides a colorful focus to the table. For Dessert try Fig Balsamic-Tomato, Strawberry & Peach Topping served over vanilla ice cream. Unique flavor as it is sweet and savory, tart and tangy. The fig balsamic balances the tart and sweet flavors.
To help with the ambiance of the evening and to provide soft lighting, glass globes with green peas and tea lights are hanging on branches of a cherry tree. As the sun sets the tree lights up like fireflies in the darkness of a summer night. This table setting is simple décor that looks to nature for inspiration.
