Home Improvement

Outdoor soirees have always been some of my favorite settings for being with friends. I love the way that being outside can make even the most formal of events a bit relaxed, and on a beautiful day, nothing is prettier than a blue sky as the backdrop. For these kind of events, rustic style furniture with dressier accents always makes for a great combination that is bound to bring plenty of compliments to the hostess. In the photograph above, the hanging lantern garland is a fun and practical way to light up the setting as the sky gets darker through the course of the meal, and is an easy way to create more of a setting, instead of just the act of being outside. Though the weather keeps transitioning here from warm to cold on basically a day-to-day basis, I will have to fit in as many outdoor gatherings as possible. However, I know that once I return to Texas, heat is a constant, and these gatherings will be, as well.
