Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer so we are into the warm weather season! This week’s high/low are some ideas for summer entertaining and things you might want to have on hand! Of course you can go top of the line, or go more realistically for the budget items. As usual, I pick a few from each end of the spectrum! Let’s talk summer entertaining!
Which one Wednesday!
It is a perfect time to enjoy your outdoor space and invite over friends for some outdoor fun! Of course, you need a table! Even if you aren’t planning a dinner party, you will want a surface to set down cold drinks and maybe light some citronella candles. I have selected a high end and low end (price wise) outdoor dining table for you to consider. I just ordered this high end one myself and I can’t wait to start the outdoor entertaining season using this as soon as it arrives!
Now, if the evenings get cool, you might just want a patio heater. That or an outdoor fire pit can be just the thing on a cool evening. The other item I would pick from this list is the string lights. For just $16.00 more, these lights give you the availability to control them from your phone and they are dimmable!
