I haven’t done much outdoor entertaining yet this summer, but plan to in the coming weeks and could not be more excited. As it’s my first full summer in NYC and I live across the street from a a gorgeous park on the river, I’m looking forward to hosting a number of summertime get-togethers as the temps get higher.
On the topic of outdoor entertaining, I’ve rounded up a few great additions to any outdoor party, all under $100. I’ve got my eye on some stunning lanterns to set the mood, and an affordable portable bluetooth speaker to keep the fiesta going. I also included the party version of my favorite irreverent vegetarian cookbook, and some wine glasses that I own and that will not break (and I’ve had my fair share of broken wine glasses!).
As far as what to wear goes, I’ve find that a floaty dress is the perfect hostess outfit. It’s not too formal, not too casual… and the comfy cut makes it totally stress-free. What could be better?
Now… who’s bringing the rosé??
