My Favorite Outdoor Summer Party

Summer is here and nothing is better than entertaining outside. Today I have joined several bloggers to share our favorite outdoor summer party. It was difficult to pick my favorite outdoor party. We have hosted a lot of amazing dinners this last year, including a dinner on the beach, a dinner club party in our backyard and Andrew and Charlotte’s Engagement party. But the one outdoor summer party that holds a special place in my heart was when we hosted the Engagement Party in our backyard for my son Andrew and his fiance Charlotte.

Over sixty people attended and it really was the perfect outdoor setting. I built an outdoor dining room with old porch posts and some lumber and lots of hanging lights!

I used all of my own silver, silverplate, glasses, china, and linens to set this very long table.

This is what we started with! 

I bought flowers at the flower mart and had polaroid photos made from photos I found on Andrew and Charlotte’s Instagram accounts;

And now I get to share some amazing outdoor summer parties and blog posts from my friends!
