Tips for Summer Entertaining

Horary for summertime when the days are longer, the weather is warmer, and activities move to the great outdoors. Summer is great season to celebrate and embrace your outdoor space. Here are a few simple tips for entertaining this summer.

  1. Keep is cool. Provide plenty of shade for your guests by decorating with umbrellas and placing floor fans around your seating areas to create a nice breeze.

  2. Keep it light. Summer is a great time to serve light foods like watermelons, corn, salad, tomatoes or really anything growing in your garden. Finger food is always a great option for parties as well.

  3. Keep it fresh. Pick flowers from your garden and make a beautiful table arrangement. Add a summer punch to it by scooping our a watermelon and using this as your vase.

  4. Raise the bar. Create a separate drink area designated to serving water, soda, wine or beer. Keep all your straws, cups, and ice here. Sangria is great refreshing summertime cocktail.

  5. BBQ. Summer is a great time to fire up the grill and leave the oven off. Consider grilling burgers, chicken, shrimp, or veggies.

  6. Have the essentials. Make sure to keep an extra bottle of SPF and bug spray around when entertaining outside.
