A Breezy Alfresco Affair: Embracing the Joys of Outdoor Dining

Here at Domestic Science we’ve always been lovers of embracing the art of alfresco dining and celebrating the beauty of outdoor living, whatever the weather! Our favourite part is setting the table, usually involving laying it with a rustic tablecloth, layering fun napkins, glassware and plates to create a harmonious display ready to host a feast and impress the guests! With good food, friends & family and a balmy Summer evening you are set for a memorable soiree full of festivities.

This week Scarlett has curated a selection of alfresco dining essentials, pulling tones of yellow, green and blue for a playful layout with a natural palette, perfect for outside. Taking the star centrepiece is the popular Gluggle jug in cobalt blue, which adds the perfect touch of whimsy to the table. Filling it with a refreshing fruit-infused beverage, your guests are sure to marvel at the unique gurgling sound it made when poured, we sure can’t get enough of it! To pair alongside your Summer drinks, why not serve up a fresh and feelgood dish! We love this Superfood Salad by Naturally nourished, with Erica Roudriguez’s recipe using vitamin packed ingredients full of flavour, texture and colour, “The quinoa, peas and nuts give it a little protein boost and the mango and basil dressing adds some zingy sweetness”, and we can confirm … it’s delicious! Follow the full recipe over on her website 

We love to play around with patterns and textures to see how they work together. The combination of our coloured glass tableware, striped & gingham fabrics and cobalt blue highlights, all sit perfectly upon the round zinc table, creating an elegant rustic space for a feast. We especially love the zinc tables, Individually handmade based on an original French design, finished with a rustic white painted iron base that is built to last. With zinc's natural properties, the table top will age gracefully over time, developing its very own unique patina and character. And don’t forget to add comfort to your alfresco dining by elevating your existing furniture with our variety of mattresses. With beautiful patterned fabrics and soft cotton padding they are the perfect versatile lounger to relax on in the garden with a full tummy, taking in the evening sun.
