Summer is the perfect time to enjoy the pleasures of home. The long, lazy days encourage us to spend hours in the yard and on the porch. The smell of the Magnolia trees and the sound of the Cicadas make this time of the year so dreamy!
With just a small amount of effort you can transform any area of your patio or garden into an oasis for a luncheon or libation. Move a small table and chairs under the canopy of your favorite tree and dine among the flowers. Keep a vintage set of luncheon dishes and linen napkins ready at hand to transform an ordinary supper into an elegant affair.
No need to travel far and wide, everything you are looking for is in your own backyard!
