Alfresco Dining (the enchantment of dining outdoors)

There is just something magical about dining outside.  The picture above (located at Spencer's Restaurant in Palm Springs, California) caught my eye.  Everything about it is enchanting.  Hanging lanterns, glowing table lamps, and the flickering flames from a fire pit transform an ordinary day into something mystical. Any alfresco dining will do!  Here are some… Continue reading Alfresco Dining (the enchantment of dining outdoors)
