Congrats to Susan who enjoys entertaining with friends on her deck overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains!

T minus 8 days until the official first day of summer! Are you ready for some outdoor entertaining? I’m with you. For al fresco dining, paper products are convenient and budget-friendly but sometimes lack style. Not so with the new MADHOUSE collections from Michael Aram.

My husband recently finished our deck. After 2 1/2 years of opening the doors to a 3 foot drop off, we’re enjoying every meal possible outside! Last summer we had to dig around the foundation to eliminate some water issues:( I finally get to landscape and let the kids play on the deck where I can see them from the kitchen. I’m loving it!

We have lots planned for outdoors this summer. A fourth of July BBQ with friends and family, drinks with friends on more than a handful of occasions, and LOTS of family dinners that we enjoy outside!

We have season tickets to a local outdoor theater venue and pack a picnic dinner before each show. This dinnerware would add a little bit of whimsey to our dinners!

I wish I had a pool, but will try my best to keep cool on the Trex deck. Maybe I’ll put a kiddie pool out there to dip our toes in as we sip cocktails :)

Unfortunately, my backyard is a bit of a mosquito and weed haven at the moment. But I’m busting my buns all summer to have it shaped up in time for glorious fall get-togethers. It’s a bit too hot in Austin during the summer to be out on the patio anyway. All other seasons, however, are fair game.
