Party Alfresco

…before it gets too hot!

In Florida, we are on the edge of “sauna weather” where even with the setting sun, we don’t have much of a break from the heat.

So, before it gets unbearable outside, plan an alfresco fĂȘte! And, don’t worry if your backyard or patio doesn’t look like something out of a magazine. Those pictures are planned, styled, filtered, and unrealistic. I love what Mrs. Bunny Williams says about not waiting to live well, “Don’t put off enjoying your home and friends. Don’t wait to live well.”

Pick one item a season to add to your “party toolkit.”

Here are some of my favorites [some are reasonable, & some are things dreams are made of].

If I were you, I’d start with a rug. It can serve to anchor your space.

Then, start looking around your house. There is nothing more charming or chic than bringing some of the inside… outside!

Don’t wait to live well!
