Summer Get-Together Ideas
1. Add a light, fresh scent to the outdoor air while cooking by throwing in some rosemary or other herbs into the charcoal grill.
2. Set up a lemonade station to quench everyone's thirst at your party. Try including lemonade, fresh fruit and skews for ease stacking fruit to eat or to add an extra twist to your lemonade. For adults add 1 part sparkling wine to 2 parts lemonade for an extra kick.
3. Take your holiday lights out of storage and brighten up your patio or deck. This will also give you great ambiance at night! Even try hanging the lights in trees, around tree trunks or add paper (battery operated) lanterns.
4. Get creative with displaying your food...plates and glasses can be placed on a tiered plant stand, and flower pots for utensils.
