Outdoor Delightful Dining

Well Dolls it's Friday and we all made it through another week. Since the weather is warming up more and more I'm sure we will all try to be outside as much as possible over the weekend! I love this time of year when we spend all of our time out on the patio having our morning coffee or a glass of wine and a nibble in the evening. Here in Arizona this window is short and before we know it, it will be 100 degrees and we will be complaining about the heat. For me outdoor entertaining is the ultimate because nature is all around to help absorb all your stress and visually creates a beautiful backdrop to any decor. Some of the key elements to outdoor entertaining are simplicity when it comes to the food and drinks, layering patterns, colors and textures, lighting, and of course music. Even if it is just a simple dinner for you and your family details always make all the difference.....don't you think? Here's to the weekend and enjoying the simple pleasures of life with your friends and family!! For more outdoor entertaining ideas follow me on Pinterest
