Seizing the day is a dictum to be taken seriously in the months that lounging, dining and recreating outdoors is most pleasant. We’ve gathered a few finds that improve those al fresco hours even further.

An outdoor- and spill-friendly tablecloth is essential for patio season. This one, in durable coated cotton twill, picks up its pattern from Sicilian pottery. Its weight keeps it hugging the table on breezy days. Round and rectangular sizes are available. From $79.95, Williams Sonoma Photo courtesy of Williams Sonoma
