Al fresco dining

Al fresco dining

When the weather’s looking good, nothing beats dining al fresco. Easter is the perfect time to get-together with family and friends, so why not take the party outside and wow your guests with these impressive (yet oh-so-simple) table setting ideas.

Love all things bright and beautiful? Want a modern take on monochrome? Or like the look of a rural retreat? It’s easy to recreate these classic IKEA table settings thanks to our piece-by-piece guide.

And if the weather lets you down, channel that al fresco feeling by hanging fairy lights, filling your vases with sweet-smelling flowers and enjoying the outdoors, indoors.
