OUTDOOR SUMMER ENTERTAINING

If there’s one thing I love it’s summer nights and entertaining.  We have gotten so much use out of our backyard dining table since quarantine.  It’s been so nice to see and catch up with our close friends and family.   I know I have mentioned that I am refreshing my outdoor area and I am so excited to finally show you the reveal with the help of Bed Bath & Beyond! They have everything you need for a household refresh and actually offer many large items like furniture, fire pits, etc.  I’m so excited to share my outdoor dining reveal…see below for all the details!

Serve ware can make such a big difference to your dining experience. I use Chopping/Prep/Serve Acacia Boards all the time for Charcuterie or even for Kitchen decor or for candles. They are so versatile and Bed Bath & Beyond has so many pretty ones to choose from. I recently picked up three and some really cute matching cheese knives. Also, I got this multi purpose server tray that works great for veggies and dip. I love that each piece is removable and you can even use just the wood tray underneath as a charcuterie or even a centerpiece with candles on it. This is a must have for entertaining friends and family.

I love decorating the dining table when entertaining!  It really sets the tone and can easily help make your dining table feel more polished and put together. I love adding layers, textures, neutral tones, flowers, candles, etc!   Here I added chargers under plates and layered them with a pretty napkin on top. These chargers are perfect for year round. This 12 piece dinnerware set is so pretty in person!! They pair so nicely with the woven textured chargers.   I highly recommend them! Also these napkins are really pretty paired with these napkin holders.

One of my favorite ways to decorate an outdoor space or really any entertaining space is by adding lots of candles!  It gives such a beautiful ambiance and a cozy feel.  Bed Bath & Beyond has a great selection of vases, hurricanes and pillar candles. I picked up a few hurricanes and they are so beautiful and classic. I love adding white candles in them.  I’m currently displaying them in my outdoor dining table & outdoor coffee table.

This Lava Heat Italia Propane Patio Heater is such a great investment and addition to anyones backyard. This patio heater really elevates the space and is so beautiful and unique with the flames in the center column. It gives off nice heat and is perfect for outdoor dining or entertaining. This heater has an electronic ignition, auto-shutoff, and adjustable heat settings. It also comes in a black color option as well as this stainless steel one.  I also love how the propane tank is stored inside the unit.

We also got the Breville Smart Scoop Ice Cream maker!  It has been such a game changer this summer! Clearly, it goes without saying that the kids love it. It makes frozen yogurt, gelato, ice cream and soft serve! You can add any fresh fruits or chocolates you want plus it comes with so many recipes you can try out. It is ready in less than an hour and even has a really cute ice cream truck song that plays when it’s ready.


 

Thanks for stopping by to see my outdoor reveal! I hope this post helps give you some ideas for Summer!
