Long weekends always put me in a lazy, hazy mood, a let's-scroll-through-Pinterest-for-pretty-things mood. On my mind this past Memorial Day weekend: gorgeous, colorful, fantasy outdoor dining spaces that are the stuff of dreams.
It's not that all of these are huge or have amazing views (although some of them are and do), but they're simply beautiful setups that make you sigh and imagine what your loved ones or group of friends would look like in that setting, what you'd serve at the table, how long you'd all eat and drink into the night...
What does your dream outdoor dining space look like?
