Outdoor entertaining is hands down, our fondest setting for an enchanting evening. We're outside, our shoes are off by the main course (and by main course I mean cheese) and there's just something about a warm summer night lit up by laughter and candlelight. And wine. Definitely wine. When you think of outdoor entertaining, it doesn't always have to mean paper plates and BBQ'd ribs. When you party in our backyard, we kick off our shoes and take our dinner to the picnic table and often keep it simple with an evening on the grass. It doesn't take much for it to be grand, and to prove it - here are some magical al fresco dinner parties and ideas to inspire your next outdoor gathering.
