Honolulu Outdoor Entertaining

Hawaiian designer, Michelle Uchiyama, gathered some of her friends for a dinner party held at at clients home on the coast of Hawaii.  She wanted to incorporate all the elements that would represent nature and the culture of her island state.  The setting is breathtaking!

"In Hawaii, the ocean always extends an invitation to dine outdoors," says Michelle. "Here, as guests of nature, we only have to travel as far as our own backyard."

Here is what she served her guests.....

  1. Everything is stunning and looks delicious!

  2. That is beyond spectacular. Having lived in Hawaii for 6 years....it is still my favorite place on earth, though I didn't appreciate it as much when I was there and frequently got "island fever".....it is so beautiful however. That setting is pure magic......I can almost hear the waves crashing, feel the rush of warm ocean air.....ahhhhh! Great visual!

    Have a wonderful day!

  3. how stunning! how awesome would it be to be a guest at that dinner? :)

  4. I LOVE the vase with the sea urchins in it! The sea urchin is an under-appreciated inspiration for decoration I think :-)

  5. We have visted quite a few times. The islands are beautiful! Who could resist a table setting in that environment?!

  6. That is one destination that is on our list! We would love to visit Hawaii. The table setting and food look amazing with the view. I wish we weren't still covered in snow here! Auuggghhh...
