Summer brings longer and warmer days, which makes it easier to enjoy food and company outdoors. Even as Labor Day approaches, it’s not too late to perfect your outdoor space for entertaining. Terra Outdoor Living’s Labor Day Sale starts on August 24th, 2016 and offers 50% off all Ventana furniture! Take advantage of this limited sale to help make your outdoor dining space as inviting as possible.

With the proper outdoor furniture sets, you can take dining al fresco on your own patio to an entirely new level of stylish. Try incorporating these ideas for outdoor dining you’ll want to make a seasonal tradition.

Choose a Stylish Table Setting and Chairs

You could drag your indoor table and chairs outside, but why not invest in proper patio dining sets that are designed to withstand the weather? From teak to aluminum, patio chairs and tables give your patio an authentic outdoor dining feel. It also eliminates the need to constantly move furniture back and forth. Be sure to have enough seating for everyone, and don’t forget about accent tables for seats away from the main dining area.

Prepare Simple Foods

Heat up the barbecue and indulge in seasonal fruits and vegetables, either fresh off the vine or seasoned and grilled to perfection. Keeping the foods simple places less stress on you as the host, and it’s perfect for outside eating.

Break Out the Drinks

Little says stylish dining better than the best drinks. Have a wine tasting party with your closest friends or break out some sparkling cider for those who need alternative options. With an outdoor bar setup and a couple of barstools, you might just feel like you’re in an entirely different part of the world.

Create Cozy Lighting

You can string lights overhead, create homemade torches from glass bottles, oils, and wicks, or set up a cozy fire bowl around which everyone can sit. Enjoying a summer twilight around a fire is the epitome of the summer atmosphere. If you have little ones around, break out the chocolate, graham crackers, and marshmallows, too.

Invite Good Friends

Whatever your outdoor dining set and decorations look like, the pinnacle of outdoor dining style is surrounding yourself with good friends and loved ones.
