How To Create A Welcoming Outdoor Entertaining Space

Outdoor spaces are an extension of the home.   Creating an outdoor dining area that is inviting and comfortable is easy if you find the right pieces. Make it functional to lounge, dine, entertain and linger with family and guest.

I tend to keep things simple outdoors with classic blue and white.  Melamine dishes and acrylic glassware are practical.  A few more must haves for entertaining outdoor are tablecloth,  placemats and cloth napkins.


Fresh-cut flowers on the table from the garden or store bought flowers is important.  I’m really enjoying having a garden.


A  whimsical pitcher keeps the table fun.


Ralph Lauren serving pieces are so chic.   Lanterns and candle holders are ready to light up the evening when the sun goes down.


Plenty of pillows for comfort and lingering always.  With some styling,  HomeGoods  helps me make my outdoor entertaining beautiful and affordable.
