Outdoor Entertaining Favorites

blogger hoang-kim cung shares outdoor entertaining on patio

Though much of our backyard is being turned into a construction zone right now, outdoor entertaining is still top of mind. I cherish time spent with family and friends over a good meal and warm weather is the perfect excuse to take those meals outside! Tablescaping has become much more popular over the last few years and I do love the opportunity to make everyday moments with our people feel special.

String lights like these are a fantastic way to create ambiance at night. The glow of the globe bulbs makes your backyard feel way more intimate and inviting!

Acrylic is a great stand-in for glass while outdoor entertaining. This collection’s etched pattern is timeless, elegant and versatile.

Melamine is another shatterproof material that’s ideal for porch snacks and backyard dinners. I love how rustic this dinnerware looks, especially set against the background of the outdoors.

These plates have the appearance of hand painted stoneware but they’re actually melamine! The soft gray-blue is a beautiful way to add incorporate color.

Threshold Ashby Flatware Set

Gold flatware like this set is incredibly chic. The color is more of a soft champagne than yellow and of course I love the minimalist design.

Block print napkins can add amazing color and pattern to a tablescape. These come in four different colors and feel both casual and elevated!

Easton Outdoor Forged-Iron Lantern

Another way to add ambiance is with lanterns like these. During the day they make great decor and at night you can light the candles inside for a soft glow!
