A big challenge of outdoor events is lugging around all kinds of equipment, especially burdensome tables and chairs. By swapping chairs for pillows, set-up in a field was easy breezy. Though the great outdoors can feel like a big space for parties, gathering around a low table anchors the focus and gives place to an intimate and private space in the middle of a large outdoor area.
Fall prairie grass and golden-hour sunlight shining through the trees provided the perfect backdrop for our table-scape that showcased a sweet little cake centerpiece, roasted and grilled farmers market veggies, bountiful cheese boards, dainty desserts, and our own floral designs.
When we discovered Pillows & Prosecco on Instagram, we were drawn to the neutral style of their decor that could fit any occasion and color theme. This beautifully showcased our colorful fall food aesthetic.
We often think of outside gatherings as large festivals, like the State Fair. But it is absolutely possible to create an intimate space for a small party in the great outdoors.
