Steal This Look: Summer Biergarten Table
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
Spring is here, which makes us think about outdoor entertaining, which inspired us to create a biergarten table setting on today's Martha Stewart Show. It's all inspired by San Francisco's white-hot Suppenküche Biergarten (good luck getting a table). Create your own modern take on the classic German biergarten with the essential elements sourced below, and for more information on this Bay Area haunt, see Restaurant Visit: Suppenküche Biergarten in SF .

Above: The sunny courtyard. For similar lighting, consider 48 feet of Outdoor Commercial String Lights ; $89.97 from Amazon. Above: Vintage German blankets are available to take the chill off the night air; the Bundeswehr Wool Blanket from the German Bund; a set of four is $159 at Deutsche Optik. Above: The Biergarten Folding Wood Table and Bench is available in natural wood (shown) and in orange for $549 from Oktoberfesthaus. Above: Illuminate your table with Recycled Bottle Lanterns ; 8.5 inches tall and $26.50 at Aha Modern Living. Another hanging lantern option is the battery-powered Soji Solar Lantern in white; a colored LED inside is responsible for the amber glow. We'd hang a cluster in a tree at the far edge of the garden. (N.B.: Happily, the price has been cut to $17 since the last time we admired it.) Above: The Six-Piece Beer Tasting Set from the Martha Stewart Collection includes pilsner, tulip, and pub glasses; $29.99 for the set at Macy's. Above: This Bavarian-style Stag Horn Bottle Opener adds a hefty Germanic note to the table; it's $110 from Jack Spade. Above: Straub's in New Hampshire offers a variety of brew mugs perfect for storing utensils; the Spaten Stoneware Mug is $14.50. Above: We like to use Elly Dish Towels as napkins; $3.99 for a pack of four at Ikea. Above: The Olivier Flatware Set features olive wood handles and is made in France; $69.95 for a five-piece place setting from Crate & Barrel. Above: The round 16-inch-diameter Galvanized Steel Tub is perfect for chilling bottles of pilsner; $54.95 at Vintage Tub. Above: Banish the bugs with this soy Mosquito Repellent Candle , free of citronella and DEET, for $56 (the concrete container is reusable) from Hillhouse Naturals Farm.
