My 'go-to' tips for easy backyard entertaining


I love spending time in my backyard enjoying the beautiful weather and flowers! Often times we will have family friends over or George and I sit by the little bistro table, so I always like putting together some light bites or a simple cheese board to munch on. Placing everything on a tray elevates the experience and also keeps everything in one place so it's easy to bring outside and inside. Keep the cheese board simple with one focal cheese and add crackers and berries around it to frame the plate. You can also add a pretty bouquet of flowers for a extra special touch! For cocktail napkins, one trick I learned is to take a glass, place it on its side and spin 90 degrees to the right to create a cute fan for a decorative look. Lastly grab your favorite bottle of wine and two glasses for a refreshing delight!
