Happy Friday, babes! Who’s ready to relax this weekend and do a little summer barbecuing?! I know I am! As I mentioned on my “Outdoor Living Space” post, it’s one of my favorite warm weather activities. Now that our landscaping is complete, Luke and I can finally enjoy our backyard. We basically live outside all summer! 😉
Today I want to share my easy outdoor entertaining items. We are currently using them on a nightly basis and I’m pretty sure y’all will too. First things first when dining outside, plastic plates! I’m talking about cute ones, mmmmkayyy! Something that is neutral, will last all season and doesn’t have a cheesy pattern. Ya feel me?! 😉 I found a tan rope design 4 pack on Pottery Barn, currently on SALE for only $19.99!
To complete the place setting I purchase new gray buffalo check napkins and black flatware a la Amazon. They are both amazing farmhouse finds at $12.99 and $39.99 for sets of four! Remember guys, you don’t have to spend a lot of money to make things look good. I love me a DEAL! Next up I used my everyday go-to natural chargers. They create a specific space for each setting, while adding a bit of texture. I’m all about it! The final farmhouse touch is of course, mason jars!! They are SO inexpensive and add a lot of character to a table.
After completing the place setting, it was time add in a bit of decor! I utilized my new recycled glass bottle vases (size small) in the middle of the table, and placed simple wild flowers inside. This was a simple centerpiece creating a country vibe. Now for comfort… I styled out the farmhouse benches with two long sheepskin rugs and buffalo check pillows. I mean, perfection… right?! AND no, I don’t keep them out there all summer long. When we are eating outside or hosting a BBQ, I bring them out from inside and place them on the benches. Voila, it’s time to entertain!
