Laid-Back Picnic Table

A weathered barnboard table is the perfect setting for an outdoor brunch.

No need for formal napkins or grand floral arrangements — keep the look casual with tea towel runners and a few potted succulents. Golden cutlery adds a sparkling vintage touch.

Find more entertaining ideas in our Summer Table Decorating photo gallery. Also, to learn how to make this DIY Tea Towel Runner yourself.
