The client wanted to create a low country boil for a Saturday night Supper but wasn’t sure how to put it together or where to start. We started at the beginning with the menu, and over all navy, white and yellow color scheme.  Next we selected the outdoor dining space. Here is the inspirational mood board for the dinner party.

Outdoor Dining Space- Before Transformation

This is a beautiful space with neutral brick and corner fireplace with mantel. The only thing missing was an overhead lighting system, so we created a Do it yourself styled candle globe overhead chandelier.

The wrought iron table was the perfect size for the dining event which seated 6. We transformed the dining chairs and set the table in the new color scheme, navy, white and yellow.

The opposite wall which you can not see in this photo is solid brick.  We added a colorful yellow and white floral canvas to the wall and placed a long skinny buffet under the print.

This buffet held the beverages and take home favors.  The overall decorating theme was directed by a smokey mountain boil, aka low country boil but with out fish in the dish.
