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.

This is part three of my story about creating a magical engagement party. Today I am going to share how I added decor to my outdoor dining room. My goal for the engagement party was to create a beautiful California Hamptons environment that was relaxed and fun. In truth, this was probably my favorite part of creating this wonderful party.
This has been the summer of entertaining. We have hosted a lot of dinner parties and I couldn’t be happier! I should probably admit how much I love to entertain. For over twenty years we have held our annual Christmas party and I still make all of the food, even though we now have over two hundred people who attend.
