inspiration – outdoors eating areas

What is it about eating a meal outdoors that’s so awesome? Maybe because it sparks memories of picnics, BBQs and summer vacation? Or maybe just because it is just different from the normal routine? Our house and yard are both totally torn up right now with various projects going on, but with the lovely weather the last few days, we have had the luxury of eating on our deck a few times! The deck is seriously my favorite feature of the house – right off the kitchen and covered, it is the PERFECT little spot for enjoying the weather. We made yummy grilled pizza yesterday for the two of us. The night before I grilled burgers for us (Boca for me!) and my brother-in-law’s family and we ate outside.  Our Margherita pizza grilling, mmm ——–>

It’s a ways off, but I have big plans for our yard and deck because I love entertaining! So while it’s rainy today and projects are being put on hold, here’s some inspiration for some outdoor eating/entertaining areas that will make any casual meal outside rock all your senses at once!:

How gorgeous are these spaces? They are more welcoming than any room in my whole house! I feel like any of these provide major inspiration for some things that can be done on a dime. Some fairy lights, some planted pots {I can spray paint some I already have}, and how awesome is that teal-painted door in the first photo? I think even in our new-construction home it would be a great idea to paint the back door a fun color.

{This reminds me I really need to do a post on the before of our yard before too much progress happens!}
