Outdoor Entertaining

Happy Friday! What are you up to this weekend? Anybody having an outdoor party? I'm not, however these pictures make me wish for a sunny weekend, that my yard was nice and neat, and I had a party planned. So many great ideas in these images from BHG that could be used, and personalized for summer parties. Amy Neunsinger is a photographer featured in her LA home throwing a gorgeous garden party. She shares some smart and inexpensive tips for a successful party.

The cluster of glass bottles with single stem peonies blend in so nicely with the natural environment. Using sting lanterns is one of her basic outdoor party decors and one of my personal favorite must haves for a garden party.

This photo chandelier is such a great idea. She took a picture of a flower from her garden, printed multiple copies and hung them over the table to make a beautiful focal point.

These lemonades look so yummy and elegant.

She uses mismatched fabric scraps as napkins, paired with handmade pink dishes and vintage flatware.

These jars filled with candied oranges made by the host is giving to the guests to take home. What a lovely idea!

How beautiful it all comes together! Do you have any outdoor party tips you'd like to share?

Have a beautiful weekend!
