Dining al fresco with Wicker Emporium

Dining al fresco with Wicker Emporium

Long nights, summer warmth…says dining “al fresco” to me! Enjoying a meal in a beautiful room with a beautiful table makes the experience even better. Enjoying a meal outside should feel the same. The trees are in full bloom, the flowers are gorgeous so create a beautiful space to share a delicious barbecue with your family and friends. Here is what is inspiring me…
outdoor furniture and decor

  • You don’t always have to have typical dining chairs. I love the lounge chair that is comfortable and allows for “eating on your lap”. You don’t always have to be so formal when eating outside.
  • Pillows with pops of colour are a great way to give your space a cozy feel. I’m loving these triangle geometric pillows. Gorgeous.
  • While eating on your lap is a fabulous alternative. It is nice to have a table. It anchors the space and is a perfect spot to play late night cards under the stars.
  • Candle light. Gorgeous as always outside. These lanterns work beautifully indoors and out.
  • Mirrors. These mirrors are not water proof but fabulous to hang on your fence while having a dinner party. They not only make the space feel larger but the texture is beautiful in the garden.
  • Stools. A great accessory for extra seating. These stools are whimsical and scream ‘summer fun’.
  • An indoor/outdoor rug is a wonderful accessory to add to your outdoor dining area. It brings the space together and that red gives such a pop of colour against the grey
  • Planters. Flowers, flowers, flowers. Three of these along your deck with gorgeous white flowers…beautiful. The perfect finishing piece
    Summer is so short. Treat yourself to a beautiful outdoor dining experience so you can enjoy a delicious meal al fresco!

Keep it Beautiful.

Together with my hubby, we're working on renovating our 1920's home in Ottawa, ON to create beautiful spaces to raise our 5 year old, 2 year old and baby girl and be house proud. He's got the tools and I'm the designer. Small or big, all spaces deserve to be beautiful and functional for real life and with real life budgets.

Wicker Emporium offers fine wooden furniture and home decor from our stores in greater Toronto, Ottawa, Halifax and Atlantic Canada.
