Even if you have only a small square of grass, take advantage of the lovely weather bounding toward us. Entertain your best friend, mother, husband, or whoever you desire under a simple canopy of bamboo poles and lashings of fabric. An abundance of cushions borrowed from every room of your home will suit most derrieres, please don’t be stingy on the seating.
I don’t imagine that you will have a chandelier just hanging around, as this lovely setting does. Why not try a few paper lanterns grouped together, I am sure they will delight your guests. More is less in this situation, lots of lovely miss matched plates, table decorations, cloth, not paper napkins please and most of all the best laughter that you can muster.
If that patch of grass is just not up to scratch, why not load the car with all your entertaining wares and head for your favourite square of sand. Again lanterns can be very affordable and allow you to wile away into the evening. Use fold out tables and again cushions for seating. Go all out and pick a colour for your napkins, placements and tablecloths to theme your evening. Don’t forget the insect repellent.
