Beautiful Finds For Outdoor Dining

I love the warm weather and being able to entertain outdoors. To me it’s the best time of the year to sit with family and friends have a wonderful meal, great drinks and terrific conversations. Whether I am having a simple get together with friends, a bridal or baby shower, (our family is exploding with new babies this year!) ūüôā¬† a birthday party or a more formal dinner party I apply the same formula of cooking and presentation to all these events. Keep them simple yet elegant with the message that you care about your guests and you are welcoming them into your home with affection and caring. None of this is difficult to accomplish. Starting with the table setting appropriate for the event, paper goods and plastic designer glasses are perfectly acceptable. Check out this site I found “Party at Lewis” where you can choose from hundreds of colors and designs! I went crazy, my new place for paper goods!¬† http://bit.ly/J6cYWW

Use flowers right out of the garden, from your local florist or super market. Take a look at this beautiful site where you can look at all kinds of ways to arrange flowers! It’s so easy to do and fun!¬† http://bit.ly/JCIE3P¬†


Whether it’s appetizers, the entree, or desert keep it simple so that you can enjoy your guests. Here our some ideas that I have on my web site that I know you will enjoy. Check out some of the other recipes too and set the table out doors and enjoy!
