Design Inspiration: Dining Alfresco

Today’s post is a special treat. In San Diego Magazine’s April Issue, four of our favorite bloggers got together to stage an afternoon of alfresco dining. Designed by Morgan Spenla of Pepper Design Blog, the table is equal parts casual and chic. Colorful glasses and dinnerware add a touch of formality, and benches create the perfect sit-on-the-ground tabletop for enjoying a meal outdoors. Organic Elements provided stunning arrangements and Terri Rippee captured it all. Thanks to Julia Wheeler, Kelley Lillien, Heather Feemster and Alexis Garrett for posing in the shots. Make sure you check out their blogs for more of their style inspiration.
