take it outside June 30 2018

01 July 2018.  What's your favorite meal to eat outside?  Morning coffee in a sunny spot on the patio?  Sunset refreshments on the porch?  Dinner under the stars in the backyard?  We'll take all of the above during our short but sweet New England summers.  

Bringing all of the provisions outdoors however, requires assistance.  Our lovely and practical linen coated trays are at the ready.  Available in three sizes, these trays come in many of the same patterns as our kitchen and table linens.  

We're loving the combination of fresh figs, cheese, and crackers on the natural and grey thin white stripe pattern trays pictured above in size small.  

For more inspiration on what to put on your tray, Becky Krystal's article on building the ultimate cheese board (or tray as the case may be) will come in handy for sure.   
And this book, Platters and Boards: Beautiful Spreads for Every Occasion by Shelly Westerhausen, is full of beautiful ideas for bringing your meals outdoors.
