Do you feel like summer is flying by? We sure do! It seems like every year after July 4 the days just disappear and we are trying to savor the days of summer even more. These outdoor spaces are just the kind of spots where anyone would be lucky to while away a summer day, getting some sun and taking a quick dip in the pool, lounging in the hot tub with a cocktail as the sunsets and hot days give way to cool, breezy nights.
Entertaining outdoors is one of the best parts of summer.
A great entertaining space is certainly the best place to start when it comes to outdoor entertaining.
For effortless outdoor style, we love the idea of creating outdoor spaces that are cohesive and mesh well with our interiors, as though the outside is simply another living room, an extension of the peerless style within.
After all, when the outdoors beyond are this beautiful, who wouldn’t want to spend all year in any one of these outdoor spaces?
Great landscaping only makes a stunning outdoor space even better. From perfectly planned greenery to beautiful blooms to charming and delicious planter boxes where guests can pick their own lettuces, herbs or veggies that will later be on their plate, great landscaping is another layer of outdoor entertaining hospitality.
We love the little things when it comes to entertaining, like setting the perfect table. Beautiful blooms from the garden, a favorite china pattern and a special, meaningful touch–like a sprig of rosemary, a box of chocolates or a favorite book–are all it takes to create an outdoor experience to remember!
Are you planning any outdoor entertaining for the rest of your summer?
