An outdoor dinner party is always special, whether you’ve invited all your friends and family, or just that special someone for a romantic night. But just like for any party, you’ll need to get organized and inspired to create something truly special - and that’s why you’re here!
With these incredible ideas, you’ll kick-start that dinner party in no time!
Romantic low table with stacked pallets
This low set up is perfect for a dinner for two! All you need is a few pallets to stack on top of each other, and the rest writes itself!
Rugs and pillows
If you want to take advantage of your space on the grass but you don’t have enough chairs for everyone, you can lay rugs and pillows all around, so guests can feel comfortable while enjoying the food!
Paper cocktail cover
This idea is great for two reasons: it looks cool, and it’s practical! The paper cover is super easy to make and it will protect your drinks from anything falling inside (the whole point of an outside dinner party if making it OUTSIDE, after all)!
There are many things we can take from this one, so let’s list them out:

Light it up!
Chances are you’ll go through the night with the all the guests, so be sure to set up a simple lighting system to keep the place well lit! Up there you can see how a simple light string hanging over the table area works perfectly and also looks great!
Show off the snacks!
A simple wooden plank across the table is the perfect place to display your snacks - guests won’t resist chewing on something when it’s so yummy and easily available…
Mason Jar Candle Holders
Candles create a beautiful atmosphere for an outside dinner party, but depending on the weather (and the decorations) it can be hard to keep them lit. Using mason jars as candleholders fixes that problems - your candles won’t burn anything nearby and will be lit for longer!
Mason Jar + Flowers
Another great use for mason jars as decorative elements - fill them with water and put some flowers in! It’s very easy to do and it creates incredible results.
