Summer Dining {boho}

In the Summer, the boho appetite blooms outdoors.
Impromptu meals.
Beach parties.
Shabby-elegant, rustic, exotic, thrown-together, al fresco dining.
Picnics.

A little whimsy, a dash of magic.
Flowers, candles, incense, music, easy whole-foods, good conversation, wine.

Take your shoes off.
Let your hair down.
Relax.

Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted.
John Lennon

  2. This is a huge reason why I love the warmer weather so much. I love being outdoors and dining in the shade. I wish I could just dive right into these photos! So beautiful.

  3. Being outdoors in summer is great - especially on a cooler evening if its been really hot during the day. I'm going to a birthday picnic celebration tomorrow in the local park, should be fun!

  6. I love your pins, though I haven't enjoyed a lounging summer evening outdoors in a long while. The bugs here are too vicious for that. I do dream of evenings like those one day soon :).

  22. I LOVE these set ups! I should
    seriously try to do something
    like this outside now that the
    temperatures are starting to
    cool down. Now to figure out a
    way to deal with those pesky
