Hosting an effortless late summer party!
TIP: Think outside the box and use bedspreads, duvets, sheets and even shower curtains to cover a table. You don’t even need a table and can use an old door propped up on a pair of sawhorses and just cover it pretty!
We served California figs and a couple of varieties of soft goat cheese along with some small French toasts. The berry flavor of the wine was a great match and nice and light for outdoor summer fun.
TIP: Use a tray to carry everything outside. It just makes it a whole lot easier and I find that it helps to prevent breakage! In this case my side table has a removable tray and it took just a couple of trips outside to bring all of this out. I don’t worry about using glass and china for outdoor entertaining. If something breaks it’s generally easy to clean up and things can be replaced.
I’m a wine fan and happy to share ideas with you for entertaining outdoors.
