The Dog Days Of Summer

There’s still time to sqeeze in a few more summer parties. Here are a few ideas to inspire you: Build a “room” with bamboo poles, large potted planters, and light gauzy fabric. Don’t forget to string some lights around for ambiance. (my home ideas)

Hang lots of old lanterns from trees, and use antique tubs, crates, and tables for an “old fashioned” backyard bash.(country living)

Don’t forget to supply some fans for your guests to stay cool!(country living)
