The warm May weather has me dreaming about evening garden parties. Twinkly lights, comfortable seating, and a sky full of stars seems like the perfect way to spend an evening with friends. The centerpiece of my dream evening garden party would be this Design Within Reach Cast Iron Fire Bowl ($375). The simple, beautiful lines were inspired by Danish coastal living, when fire bowls were used to help navigate ships. The conical shape ensures that the lower bowl collects ash and elevates the flames off the ground to better dissipate the heat from the bowl. It would also be a great place to roast marshmallows, too; don't you think?
Other must haves would be the Anthropologie Springbok Benches ($1,700) made from handwoven rattan. And you can't go wrong with twinkly lights or an outdoor chandelier, either. Shop the look by clicking on each image.
