Dining Al Fresco

Nicole-Richie-Al-Fresco-Dining-Blue-Table-Setting-via-DiCorcia-Interior-Design-NY-NJDuring warmer months, dining al fresco is one of the greatest pleasures! Nothing beats casual food, great conversation and festive drinks paired with a mild breeze. I find guests tend to be more relaxed and really feel at home. It doesn’t hurt that a little spilt wine is no biggie – just hose it off – cleanup is a piece of cake! I’m head-over-heels in love with this “relaxed and eclectic” Laurel Canyon backyard belonging to Nicole Richie and her family! This incredible summer dinner party Richie hosted for her girlfriends is a little bit glamorous, completely relaxed and utterly perfect in my book!

Do you eat outside often? If so, what’s your favorite cuisine to serve? I always enjoy doing something really casual!

  1. love, love, love eating outdoors. we always grill and it’s always very casual. steaks, ribs, kabobs…..corn on the cob, nothing fancy!! actually, in general, i am a casual cooker. roast chicken, pot roast, meat loaf…..love those comfort foods!!
