Exterior Inspiration: Outdoor Entertaining

A beautiful tablescape with cozy seating - Eye Swoon

Happy Friday, friends!  With the first day of summer just around the corner, I wanted to share a few of my favorite ways to make your backyard a more inviting space for this season's outdoor get-togethers.  Sadly, Taylor and I do not have much of a backyard right now - literally just a concrete slab with no privacy from the street - so, in the meantime, I will just have to live vicariously through these beautiful images.  I love how Athena from Eye Swoon created a romantic and cozy space for a dinner party in the above image.  It may sound silly, but throwing a beautiful outdoor party in my own backyard is definitely on my bucket list!

A rug, pillows and a blanket helps bring the feeling of home outdoors - Emily Henderson

I cannot wait until we have a larger backyard, but am hoping to make our small space work until that day comes.  Taylor and I are looking to put up a small wall for a bit of privacy, but if you have any recommendations on how to decorate a tiny backyard - I'd love to hear them!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

  1. Indeed it is a perfect idea to be used for any outdoor wedding. Even I want to tell you that I am also getting married at Los Angeles venues with a big open apace area and ideas like this will help me to plan my dear wedding. So, please keep sharing it here.
