Welcome to the unofficial start of summer! Here in North Carolina, we saw an absolutely gorgeous Memorial Day weekend. The Great Outdoors beckoned each and every day and while this ginger kid has to take it easy in the sun, lunch al fresco under the shade of magnolia trees is always the perfect compromise.
Make your outdoor entertaining trousseau just as fabulous as your indoor options! So many brands have started producing top notch melamine dinnerware and serving pieces, allowing endless possibilities for your next outdoor party. But don't forget that your indoor entertaining pieces can pull double duty. Take the indoors outside with items like this tablecloth, the placemats, napkins and flatware. Use what you have! But know that you can fill in the gaps with dinnerware that is not only beautiful but also practical.
