Once you’ve made your table, dress it up! Add colour from your garden (here, hot-pink bougainvillea and kalanchoe), then pair with colourful bonbons.
Pretty in pink! Spruce up disposable wooden cutlery by dyeing it with red food colouring, then display in glass jars on the table ready for mealtime.
This trestle table is made of clear pine so it’s not meant to be left outside indefinitely, but by coating the legs and top you will be able to get many years of use out of it. If your guest-list expands at the last minute, this is a quick and easy project to knock together the weekend before.
