Summer Entertaining in the Backyard

Summer is in the air, and with it comes the joyfulness of basking in the sun, lazy afternoons spent lounging on the patio, and the excitement of throwing backyard parties with friends and family. If you enjoy summer entertaining as much as I do; backyard weddings, cookouts or impromptu gatherings will be a breeze with these entertaining tips.

  • Keep it simple- Mason jars are beautiful with fresh herbs and fruit inside along with a floating candle. Adding a candle that is scented and keeps the bugs away is always a plus!

  • Keep it safe- Always keep your food at the appropriate temperatures. Simply put keep the hot foods hot and the cold foods cold. Food safety is paramount while entertaining this summer.

  • Keep it sweet- What is a backyard bash with no sweets? Blackberry pies, apple pies and peach cobblers are all delicious options for outdoor soiree. Have your guest to bring over a dessert that they are famous for and do a tasting! It will be so much fun!
