With summer upon us, I’m already thinking about hosting a few alfresco gatherings. Although southern Cali weather is pretty tepid, I still find myself entertaining outdoors more in the summer months. So it is time to do a little sprucing up, the elements do take a toll on things and nothing lasts forever. I need to replace a few umbrellas, deep clean the outdoor furniture, and replant and refresh the landscape. My budget is tight so I will be searching for the best prices and a lot of DIY projects. I’m always looking for inspiration.
I love moroccan anything…love the colors and the lanterns.
I need to address an area that gets full sun, I would love something like this…
I love outdoor rugs, the ones I have are on their last season.
This is a party I had 3 years ago, Reggie and I did all the food. I love making lots of salads, and experimenting with decadent vegan desserts, I make REALLY good vegan ice cream.
My upper deck is in good condition, perfect for having drinks at sunset.
This is the current state…I have my work cut out.
My beautiful rose garden is sick…
Everything has grown so massive and is blocking sun to other plants…we used to have a really good gardener who retired and I have not ben able to find someone else to do the quantity of work that he did…
Do you like alfresco entertaining?
