Zing: Three Steps to the Ultimate Al Fresco Dinner Party

Three Steps to the Ultimate Al Fresco Dinner Party Spending summer nights on your patio with some café lights and fresh salads sounds like something straight out of HGTV – but it can be your reality, too! If you’re dreaming of dinner under the stars with a glass of wine in hand, an al fresco dinner party can do the trick. The Setting If you’re wondering what al fresco dining is, you’re not alone. It’s actually simpler than it sounds. Al fresco dining is essentially having a meal outdoors, but it tends to be casual and more of a party atmosphere. While an outdoor dinner party may feel more casual, there are a few things to consider if you pop open that bottle of wine. Table and Seating Rule number one of outdoor dining – you need somewhere to dine. Consider getting a wood patio table with coordinating benches or chairs. This keeps the feel casual and refined. If you already have a patio table, use that! If its colors aren’t what you envision for your outdoor dinner party, throw a tablecloth on top for a unified look. If you don’t have a backyard but want to have an al fresco dinner party, Andrea Correale, founder of Elegant Affairs Caterers, suggests setting up on a grassy area. “You can also set up on grass without a problem. Lay indoor/outdoor carpets down if you need or want to add a design element,” says Correale. If you live in an apartment complex, see if you can utilize a rooftop or courtyard space. Lighting Next, think about your lighting. For the ultimate al fresco dinner party, you...

Chowhound: Don’t Let a Lack of Outdoor Space Stop You From Entertaining This Summer

Don’t Let a Lack of Outdoor Space Stop You From Entertaining This Summer What says summer more than barbecuing? (Hint: pretty much nothing.) Unfortunately, not all of us are lucky enough to have expansive and Pinterest-worthy backyards to host our nearest and dearest for some grilling and cocktails. For those of us unlucky enough to have to sweat through the warmer months in tiny studio apartments, entertaining between Memorial Day and Labor Day can be tough. So what exactly do you do when you want to entertain and your only “outdoor” space is your fire escape or the hallway outside your apartment? Here’s how to host a festive summer party even if you don’t have a backyard. Declutter, Declutter, Declutter The first thing you need to do if you’re throwing a bash in a cramped space is to temporarily get rid of any furniture or decor that makes the space feel untidy. “First, declutter your inside space,” says Anticipation Events owner Elizabeth Tulipana. “You will be surprised how much room you have if you shift around some key furniture pieces.” Stash unneeded furniture in a bedroom or spare closet and use some folding chairs to make sure there’s enough seating for your guests, without crowding your space with bulky furniture. Bring Summer Indoors Don’t have access to outdoor space of your own? Bring the outside into your home, recommends Andrea Correale of Elegant Affairs. “Bring in the palms!” Correale says. “Bring in extra plants and place around your space. Maybe add a bit of string lighting around the windows or in the space. Use a summer gingham tablecloth or something that screams summer.” Throw together a tropics inspired playlist or pull up Spotify and queue up some island-y...
