As the weather steadily rises to warmer weather, casual dining – alfresco style in the fresh air is the place to be while enjoying a meal this spring! And when it comes to the season, nature is the perfect compliment to outdoor dining – likewise so does fresh, bright and colorful fruit. So why not spruce up your table setting by accenting your plate with a simple touch of seasonal fresh fruit! It’s a delightful way to greet your guests as they pull up their chair to sit at the table.
Whether you are using fruit as a name card holder or simply to embellish your plate, I’ve rounded up some table setting ideas that will inspire you to recreate the look for your next outdoor fête!
Rather than setting the pair of cherries directly on the plate, a layer was added with a napkin on the plate and tucked on each side, to add visual interest.
Using fruit as individual name card holders are fun and your guests can enjoy eating it at the end of their meal!
A fig sitting alone on a plate would seem uninteresting but by simply adding a stem of greenery underneath the fig, instantly adds dimension.
Adding dark colored fruit (like this pair of blackberries) on top of all-white dinnerware, is an instant way to add color and contrast to your place setting.
If your fruit comes with a green leafy stem like this kumquat orange, do not separate it. This floral-like combination paired with a dinner menu adds brightness and charm to the table setting.
