This seems like a dream picnic. Flowers on the table and in the appealing woven tote combine with blue and white fabrics and dinnerware to create a beautiful table. Fresh grapes are ready for munching and the wine is chilling in its natural terra cotta container.
Yes, this is a set piece, but you can create the same mood for your luncheon or dinner party without heading for the nearest farm. Start with flooring. A wood floor in a light to medium color will echo the shades of this straw without sticking into your feet. Or look for an area rug in neutral straw tones or even in sisal.
Choose a table in light tones or some variation of natural wood. Keeping the flooring and furniture consistent allows the blue and white choices to stand out. Set up your gathering near your sunniest window to keep the lighting reminiscent of outdoor summers.
Once the fundamentals are finished, have fun with the rest. Choose large numbers of flowers in coordinating colors and display them in large casual bunches. Mix patterns and styles, using color as the primary connection. Create a simple menu that specializes on fresh fruits and vegetables with a few cheeses.
You can recreate the magic of this photo without the hidden challenges with a little thought for the look of a space, and your luncheon will feel as special as this picnic does.
