You’ve probably been thinking of ways to get outside and get some fresh air since January. But hosting an al fresco anything isn’t easy. Thanks to millions of party-planning Pinners, we have the scoop on the summer-ready ideas to help you host the best bash or everyday celebration. Here are a few highlights from our recent summer entertaining report.
Party in the front
This summer, it's all about hanging out, out front. Turn your front porch into a front deck, or add a fire pit or decorative tiles, to the yard. These style upgrades increase curb appeal and give off good neighborly vibes.
Take the inside out
First things first, pour yourself a drink. Next, put out some fruit and dip for people to nosh on while they arrive. Hollow out a lemon, use the rind as a serving bowl and fill with melon and mint. Then, it’s time to get grilling. Let your guests build their own BBQ bowls with a spread of fresh fixings.
