I don’t know if it’s because it reminds me of my childhood and that “school’s out!” feeling, or if it’s something deeper, but summer feels different in so many ways. There is just something about the spirit of this season – even for those of us who have long been out of school – that makes it special. It’s like everyone let’s out a collective sigh and just relaxes a little bit more.
Is it summer where you are yet? It’s definitely arrived here! We went from our gloomy May and June mornings to it being almost 90 degrees today! And believe me, I’m not complaining. I’ve been wanting some sunshine and warmth for months now, so it feels delicious. (Though when you speak to me in August, I might not be feeling quite as happy about it, haha!) 😉
Hello friends! Today I’m back with more outdoor inspiration for the summer, but this time, we’re talking summer tablescape ideas! I’m joining the Styled + Set Tour, hosted by my good friend Lory of Designthusiasm. If you’re coming over from Edith and Evelyn Vintage, welcome, I’m so glad you’re here. For even more inspiration, be sure to check out the other stunning tables and entertaining ideas linked at the bottom of the post!
As I’ve mentioned before, outdoor entertaining is one of my absolute favorite things about summer! And though we do plenty of grilling and meals outside, we also love to spend time outdoors after the meal is over.
Who doesn’t love sitting under the stars during the summer months? In fact, I would say it’s one of the easiest ways to enjoy the season with family or friends. So today I’m sharing one of our favorite summer outdoor entertaining ideas!
Well, I don’t know about the weather where you are, but this is my first full week of sunshine since last fall, and I’m positively giddy! With Memorial Day behind us (the “official” start of summer 😉 ) and this warm weather, I’m in full-on summer mode!
I love summer entertaining, it’s probably my favorite thing about the season. Dining outside, lingering over good conversation with friends, spending an evening in the backyard. These are all a big part of summer for us. However, I don’t know about you, but our weather is not always cooperative! Especially in these early summer months of May and June. Our days are gloomy, grey, and even rainy. But of course, we still want to entertain!
