One of the draws of living in a part of the world where all forms of outside dinning, unless you are prepared to eat while wearing parkas sitting on stools made of ice/snow and chance having your lips or tongue stick to drinking cups; you are left with dreaming of the warm days ahead and look for inspiring settings, you may be able to recreate, once the bitter cold is long gone.
Here are some photos i hope will get your creative juices flowing and I hope will also add a little warmth to your day.
This setting reminded me of a setting in Italy ... Tuscany perhaps??
This one with a few modifications, could be transformed into a setting reminiscent of the tents that may have been set up for Marie Antoinette, on stops along her travels.
The blues and whites with the pop of yellow ..have me drifting to a setting in the South of France .. Provence
Whimiscal and a great inspiration for a child's outside birthday celebration...
Now this had me dreaming of enjoying a wonderful afternoon in the garden sipping champagne, wouldn't it be divine to have a greenhouse to laze away the hot summer days.. butterflies and birds flying by to say what a blessing...
This year we decided to host a boxing day Pancake Brunch ... of course with it being winter , everyone was inside. When I came across these photos .. I thought Hmmm OutDoor Pancake Brunch!!
I hope you have enjoyed your visit and will stop by next time where cold days and mid-day breakfasts make great companions.
