Create an inviting al fresco dining spot
Mixing odd pieces of furniture, textures and colours will help the atmosphere to feel carefree and cosy. Make it easy for yourself by using what you already have at homely. Put down rugs to make the overall impression more homey. Use throws and cushions to turn no-maintenance outdoor seats into comfortable extra places to sit– the throws can also be used as wraps as the sun goes down.
Laying the table
If space is tight, try putting all the food on the table. Food wrapping is ideal for handheld food such as burgers. Just sit the food in a serving basket, along with fresh seasonal vegetables for guests to munch on.
Set the mood with deco and dreamy lights
We love to see our customers get creative with our products. Go for it! But please note that altering or modifying IKEA products so they can no longer be re-sold or used for their original purpose, means the IKEA commercial guarantees and your right to return the products will be lost.
