Inspirations for casual summer entertaining

These photos were styled by Lara Hutton of The Names Agency. This Australian stylist marvelously created scenes for products and food amongst other things. I discovered her through a post on design to inspire blog.

If the photo in the park and the veranda scene do not inspire you to organize a stylish picnic this weekend I do not know what will. It is fun to see how a few careful chosen items can generate a magnificent atmosphere. These two themes are easy to duplicate. And they can be done on a limited budget.

The food photographs are simply stunning. The shabby chic style goes hand to hand with alfresco dining. If you stay at a cottage this summer, take notes on how these recipes are plated. When you look at it after the facts, it seems so simple to highlight comfort food. Enjoy the views.
