Summer is officially here! I don’t know about you but we are ready for some warm weather and some good Summer festivities. There are so many fun ways to bring your family and friends together! Whether it is a grand celebration, a small get together for a backyard party, dinner party or a wine tasting party, count us in!

Backyards are the perfect venue for any party in the Summer! There are so many different celebrations you can have in your very own home. Graduation parties, birthday parties, pool parties, wine tasting parties, dinner parties; there are so many excuses to throw the ultimate bash!

Cocktails in the Backyard

A warm breeze on a summer night is always perfectly paired with a chilled cocktail! Throwing a few cocktail tables around your pool, patio or grassy yard is the best recipe for a great party. They are not only meant for your guests to mix and mingle but they are also the perfect accent to any design!

When we think of Summer, we think of all the bright colors and patterns embellished on the patio furniture, umbrellas, and our Milano collection!! Our Milano collection is filled with natural linen fabrics with fun prints and colors. It is perfect for any backyard event!

Oranges, yellows, pinks, and blues are the colors of Summer! We adore our Miranda linen making a depute at this backyard party!

Cocktail tables are a great way to splash some color and fun patterns throughout your backyard. They are great to have for events with multiple guests such as graduation parties and birthday parties.

Backyard Dinner Party Ideas

Coming from wine country, we love to be outdoors! An alfresco dinner and some La Tavola linen go hand in hand like cheese and wine. We take up every opportunity to have some yummy food, great company, and a relaxing ambience!

When you love the look of your table, but also want a touch of linen… La Tavola Table Runners are the ultimate win for a beautiful table you want to show off! The options are endless with table runners. Are you searching for the perfect balance of understated yet eye-catching? Or do you want a runner that is the showcase?┬áLa Tavola Table Runners are perfect for a variety of occasions! We love using runners to pull in something a little extra.

Pro Tip: have you loved one of the La Tavola linens, but are too scared to repeat it? Well, try using the same one in a La Tavola runner for an similar, yet updated look! Mix up the florals, dinnerware, etc., and your guests might not even notice ­čśë


Go bold with some pattern! Our Rio Grande pictured here is especially fun because the runners are used horizontally and perfectly complete the southwestern look. Who doesn’t love a stripe, especially a multi color one! This beautiful workshop was hosted by The Poffs and designed by Brannan Events with photography by Lauren Feddersen.

Even if you are already covering your table with a linen, using a runner is still a fresh addition! We love how our Charles Indigo runner shown here adds a bright, modern touch.



Do you live for solids, but love a good texture? Our Velvet Collection is made for you. A hint of velvet is perfect all year round!

Usually shy away from yellow? Think again. Our Velvet Golden runner is such a beautiful pop for this citrus themed table. This stunning inspiration was designed by Kelly Oshiro and photographed by Koman Photography. More where that came from on Style Me Pretty.


We simply love how the Velvet Blush blends in with these florals. We love how Kaella Lynn Events did not shy away from using this rich color against the light dinnerware, and how Jake & Necia Photography captured it perfectly.


Enough said.

Our 2018 Collection includes this Wes runner, and we could not be more obsessed. It is available in Curry, Navy, and Steel. We love it so much; the navy and curry are both displayed in the Napa showroom for your viewing pleasure. Check out the La Tavola Pinterest for more of our 2018 collection in use!

Drama, romance, luxury… the Aurora runner wears many hats. How stunning is our Aurora Blush under this outdoor chandelier?! The oversized runner provides lots of movement to add a whimsical, soft touch to any dining experience. Pastels never go out of style in our book. We are in awe of this editorial that radiates elegance created by So Happi Together and Sally Pinera Photography.

Which La Tavola runner is your favorite? No matter your cup of tea (still can’t get over the recent Royal Wedding ovbi!), try one of our table runners for your next party! We would love to be inspired by the looks you dream up! Share them with us on Instagram ­čÖé
