This Is How a Designer Styles an Unforgettable Fall Table Setting

Fall might be the perfect season for outdoor entertaining. While the summer and spring may be more regularly associated with dining alfresco, there's something magical about enjoying fall flavors surrounded by twinkling lights and bundled up by a firepit while crisp air fills your lungs. Plus, it's a wonderful alternative to the usual restaurant dinner or bar routine on the weekends. So before the weather completely transitions from brisk to biting, why not host a group of friends for a casual dinner party or even a festive Friendsgiving celebration?

Ahead, be inspired by the stunning spread and take note of Taylor's masterful tips for creating an ideal setup for an evening spent outside with good food and even better company.
