Outdoor Entertaining Essentials
If the weather for you is anything like where we are, it doesn’t seem like spring or summer are on the horizon, but they are definitely coming. When they do, there is nothing better than hosting an outdoor get together.
While it’s fun to see friends and family year round, there’s just something about warm weather that makes us extra social. Maybe it’s the fact that a lot of the mess is outside and there is less to clean up. Hey, we want to enjoy the party too!
Whether gatherings are big or small, fancy or casual, you need a few staples to ensure a good time is had by all. The awesome thing about investing in some of these things (and let’s face it, some are an investment), is that they will last for years. Once you have a grill and patio set you love, you are good to go for parties not just this summer, but the next, and the next, and, well, you get the idea.
Plus, just because you aren’t having a party, doesn’t mean you don’t want to fire up the grill or have dinner outside. Why only have outdoor fun when guests are over?

Casual Traditional Patio Collection
Any outdoor festivity starts with great patio furniture. We love this set for just about any locale or occasion. The availability of accessories takes the guess work out of creating a cohesive look.
Char-Broil 4 Burner Gas Grill
What is summer without burgers and hot dogs on the grill? We love the convenience of this one and the side burner that is perfect for making barbecue sauce or a starchy side.
Clear Plastic Dinner Plates
None of us want our good dishes broken, and parties are about way more than the plates on which the food is being served. These plastic plates eliminate the mess!
