the outdoor oasis

%champagnepicnic %blogSummer is just about here and if entertaining outside is on the top of your list like it is mine, then you are probably beginning to prep your outdoor space for guests.  First of all, you have to stop by C. Wonder if you haven’t already.  They have such cute items for entertaining like these nautical paper placemats.  The key to perfecting the outdoor party is comfort and cocktails.  It is important that your guests are comfortable – make sure you have lots of seating, a big patio umbrella, and citronella candles on hand to keep the bugs away.  Nothings ruins an outdoor fiesta like a band of mosquitos, am I right?!  Also, make sure you have lots of ice and cold cocktails prepared before your guests arrive.  I have my eye on this sangria recipe at the moment.  Add a few snacks and treats and you are on your way to the perfect summer soiree!  P.S. – can you please take a look at this ahmazing cabana from Anthro?!  Now THAT is what I need.%champagnepicnic %blog From top: // Ikat Tray with Nautical Inserts // Cast Iron Lobster Bottle Opener // Target Threshold Ceramic Lantern // Hammered Tin Party Bucket // Striped Beach Paddle Set // Natural Citronella Candle // Kelly Planter Set // Juicy Fruit Cheese Board // Oh So Merry Napkins // Pineapple Cocktail Picks // Nautical Decanter with glasses //
