From my (of course, lacking sources) “Outside” inspiration folder:
A pretty table for a casual evening… in a climate cooler than ours.
Twinkly lights and blue, blue skies…
A pretty, happy, very French table for chats and glasses of wine and girlfriends….
Am I the only one who thinks, “Um, ticks!” when they see this next picture? Beautiful otherwise.
This is better:
We’re throwing a 4th of July party because we don’t have any plans (when in doubt, invite people over)… but of course, our backyard is a mess, our house needs to be pressure-washed, and we have pro-level mosquitoes. Oh, well. Our friends don’t generally care, but we’ll see how much pressure-washing and twinkly-light-hanging can be done between then and now.
Do you have outdoor party tips and tricks to share?
