Dining Alfresco

The clocks have gone back, the afternoon’s are lovely and long and the evenings are light. But it’s still early April so although it looks beautiful out of an evening it is still pretty chilly. I think we all get a bit carried away and cant wait to get the BBQ’s going and the tables laid outdoors for Alfresco dining and we probably even think it will be fine to go out with a sleeveless top, or even worse a dress and a little jacket.  I know that if I’m cold I cant enjoy myself, I cant even have a conversation because I cant concentrate on what anybody is saying, all Im thinking about is how freezing I am.  So at this time of year it would be wise to still wear trousers/jeans/tights AND a jacket.  If you are hosting a dinner at home in the garden, be sure to put up plenty of lights for ambience , cosiness and sparkle.  Check out my inspiration boards for eating out.
