These final few weeks of summer are always so bittersweet. That special feeling that only summer can bring starts to wind down. The kids go back to school, vacation seems like it was months ago, and it might even be cooling off a little (well, not where I am, but you know, in some places) 😉 But that doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy this last bit of the season! I, for one, am all about squeezing out a few more memorable meals before the summer really is gone.

Summer entertaining. Two of my favorite words – and they’re especially good when strung together, don’t you think?!
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.
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!

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!
