A Late Summer Italian Dinner Party

As we head into the last couple weeks of summer, an al fresco meal on a warm evening is just how I want to wind down the season.

I had been on the hunt for a table that would be suitable for a multitude of purposes, and discovered the perfect one at my secret spot for antiques. After purchasing a beautiful early American wooden cabinet earlier this year, I first discovered Litt Concept House. They have been in the antique business since 1973 and recently renovated their incredible showroom filled with one-of a kind antiques, gift and tabletop selections.

Inspired by my new Irish pine table from Litt Concept House, I immediately envisioned being outside for dinner. I filled the table with seasonal flowers (some picked from my Mom’s garden) and created a menu from all the beautiful summer produce at the farmers market.

Below, I share my menu and a few of my favorite things, including a similar table that is still available from Litt Concept House, so you can create your own end-of-summer dinner party.
