Outdoor Entertaining Essentials

Outdoor Entertaining Essentials

It’s summer and that means it’s time to talk about outdoor entertaining essentials. I love having a good dinner party outside but there are a few things that just make it a bit easier. Before we dive into what you need, let’s talk about planning the party. Find a great recipe here or here. You really cannot go wrong with either! I’ve linked a few of my own recipes on this post down below, but here, here, and here are the actual links. The most important thing at any good party is what you’re serving and I promise people will love those recipes! They’ll probably be asking you for the recipe, too.

Now that we’ve talked about what you’re serving let’s look at the five things I’d suggest to anyone hosting a party. First up, you’ll want to get a pitcher and some stemware for cocktails. Serve up that raspberry pom frose in a pitcher and get an instant refresh. It’ll keep you cool in the summer heat. Speaking of keeping things cool, check out the coolers and storage containers I found below. I’m particularly a huge fan of this leather cooler, and think it would be a fantastic Father’s Day gift if you’re searching. Scroll down to see what else I’d include in my entertaining essentials then let me know how it goes for you!
