Outdoor Fall Dining

Good morning!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  :-)  Mine was very lovely, spent with lots and lots of family -- my favorite!

In the part of Arizona my husband and I live in, October is just the beginning of Fall.  Right now, we are experiencing warmer temperatures during the day (think 80s-90s) and incredibly beautiful nights (60s-70s).  This means that I am currently dreaming about outdoor Fall dining!  :-)  My husband and I have a relatively small patio in comparison to our parents' yards; but we like to spend our mornings and evenings out there -- eating, drinking coffee, and talking.  This got me inspired to find some of my favorite outdoor Fall dining escapes to share with you today!

Don't you just love the warm colors?  :-)  I think that's one of my favorite parts about Fall -- the transition from brighter colors to shades that I find to be much more soothing!

What are two of your outdoor Fall dining essentials?  I think mine would have to be San Pellegrino and a cozy wool throw or two!



  1. We had an unseasonably warm day on Saturday, and got to dine al fresco with friends on their new screened in patio. Afterward, we made s'mores at their fire pit. It was lovely. Out here in New England, we're deep into fall and getting into the fearing-winter phase. So it's all about hot food and drinks: stews, soups, hot apple cider, and hot chocolate. Good for the soul and the taste buds.

    1. That sounds so lovely! :-) I can't wait until it gets a little bit cooler so that I can start making some homemade soups! I agree that it is good for the soul!
