merry hostess | dinner al fresco

We hosted our first dinner al fresco last week, it was magical. There is really no better way to celebrate summer.

Hosting your own is easy with something cold to serve | a bright dress to wear | candles to light | an awesome recipe to make | a chunky block of wood | and this pretty palette to pull it all together.

    My mom used to always teach us, put more than you think people will eat onto the serving platters! It makes guest feel welcome!
    Love that dress as well!

    love all the colors & inspiration! I have 1 month left until I have a back yard – and hosting an outdoor dinner party is #1 on my list!
