The impending fall is taking the edge off the sweltering summer heat, and dining al fresco is back!

everything fab
But who needs a table when you can have soft grass and antique linens?

Good bread…

Better wine…

Doesn’t this look like a proposal waiting to happen? Sigh…
Anywhere with fresh air works, really. But, we have to admit, some picnic spots are more idyllic than others… Talk about a dinner party!

The right setting and a few favorite things can create an evening to remember with little fuss at all.
We guess it just goes to show, the simple pleasures in life are the only ones really worth having.
Hoping your day’s a picnic!

P.S. Friends, we have a favor… And a prize! 

When you’re on Pinterest tonight (because you know you will be!) would you mind going to the NYDC’s Pinterest Page and repinning our design board?

You’ll be entered to win our new fave design book: Tom Scheerer Decorates. We reviewed it a couple of weeks ago and are OBSESSED. (i.e. We’re keeping our copy…) 
No need to comment or anything; we’re keeping track via the board — so if you pinned before the giveaway started you can still win! If you win and you already have the book, we’ll let you choose another 🙂 
Thanks, sweet friends. You are all wonderful!
