I know that summer is fading fast; here in London we're lucky enough to be having a bit of an Indian summer and I'm wondering if this gorgous sunshine is going to last until the weekend. If so, there has to be some last minute summer entertaining .... eeking out the alfresco experience whilst we can. Think blousy hydrangea, storm lanterns and candles, fading pastel petals, ombre effect napkins and of course, soft throws for when it gets chilly...
vintage cutlery and pretty pastel tumblers (similar from here)
raid the garden for the last of the summer blooms
layer cloths for a less formal look
sprinkle petals for romance
think strings of fairy lights, deserted beaches
and send your guests home with a bouquet of poenies, a sweet reminder of summer
