Hello there friends, and welcome to another French Country Fridays! It’s been a busy (and hot!) week here at Maison de Cinq and I’m so looking forward to the weekend and celebrating Father’s Day! Today I’m planning to do no work and just have a nice lunch with the hubby and maybe sneak in some antiquing (always a good idea, right?) 😉 And of course, Sunday will be a day all about him and he gets to pick whatever he wants to do for the day. And no, it never involves antiquing, or any kind of shopping for that matter, haha!
As I’m sure some of you know, my backyard has been in the midst of a remodel for almost the entire past year. We spent last summer remodeling the pool, and then most of the fall finishing the landscaping. And though I haven’t revealed the entire project yet, today I’m sharing one of the newest additions – my new outdoor chandeliers!
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!
