How To Romanticize Outdoor Gatherings This Summer

Design — May 23, 2024

The weather is warm, holidays are approaching, and the time for outdoor gatherings are officially here! Today, I wanted to share with you some ways to romanticize your time together whether you are hosting for friends or just celebrating time with your little family.

Get the Look

01 – Use colored linens and dinnerware to create a fun aesthetic

Here, I used a yellow linen tablecloth and hand-painted dinnerware in a beautiful green color to complement the outdoors.

02 – Use lighting, throws and pillows to create a thoughtful atmosphere.

I love these outdoor lamps and flameless candles.

03 – Have cold drinks readily available to eliminate trips indoors!

I love this cooler that is easy to move around, has a bottle opener and a spot to put bottle caps- it truly is the perfect summer must have!

04 – Use herbs as your centerpiece that complement the menu.

Since we were enjoying grilled pizzas, we planted basil, rosemary, thyme and lavender.

05 – Keep the menu simple, consider a grilled pizza or bruschetta.

We love grilling pizzas, I also love that we didn’t have to worry about flatware.

06 – Don’t forget to enjoy your time together!

The kids were so excited to be eating out here and loved that everything looked elevated from our everyday… it’s the simple things like this that I know they appreciate and we will always remember 🙂

Hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
