Outdoor Entertaining

Well, summer is quickly coming to an end here. School will be starting soon, we haven't really had a very hot summer, and I just want to hang on to it for just a bit longer. So, these outdoor entertaining pics keep me hangin' on.

I would love to entertain in any of these outdoor spaces. I think I would serve a nice grilled chicken salad with fresh tomatoes from my garden and some yummy artichoke dip with crispy whole wheat bread. Of course I would have a glass of sweet tea (preferably my Aunt Donna's) over ice to keep me cool. I think I know what I am having for lunch tomorrow!

Aunt Donna, are you making the trip?

Hope everyone is enjoying the last of their summer vacation. Fall will be here before we know it.

1st photo via Veranda, 2nd photo via The Laurel Hedge, 3rd, 4th, & 5th I don't remember where I got them I apologize.If anyone knows let me know so I can give proper credit where it is due. I try and record the origin now! 6th Traditional Home Mag. 7th Pottery Barn.

Wow - all awesome in their own way! We love to eat outside on our patio, and this summer has been unreal for that - NO BUGS - what's up with that? Too cool this spring and nothing hatched, according to the experts. Whatever the case, it's great!...thanks for sharing the great pics! Andrea
