Mountaintop Tableau

The majestic views from a mountaintop deck offer a breathtaking background for a hearty, casual meal of Italian dishes ideal for an evening outdoors. 


RUSTIC AND RELAXED: It’s not a stretch to compare the views of the Southern mountaintop with those from the hills of Tuscany, so a menu of Italian favorites like fettuccine alfredo and parmesan chicken works beautifully for this setting. Complete the meal with a decadent tiramisu pie


MOUNTAINTOP ACCENTS: A pretty plaid cloth echoes the shades of the autumn trees beyond, and distinctive dinnerware, like the Maker’s Mark Line from Sir/Madam, shown below, adds personality and polish. Hurricane vases in three sizes hold candles nestled in decorative moss, and together they form an eye-catching centerpiece.
