(I am re-sharing this post as part of “The Best of Summer” Enjoy!)
Summer is in full swing!
In fact, I could stand for a little less of the Summer heat we have been having these past few weeks. Thankfully, we have been getting some late afternoon rain showers which cool us off. Then, we can head out onto the back deck to enjoy the rest of the evening. In the Summer months, we love to have friends over. Even if its only for an informal cook out or just a few drinks and appetizers.
The good thing about entertaining on your back deck is you don’t need fancy crystal or sparkling silver… heck, most of our parties have an abundance of paper plates and Solo Cups.

Pinterest is filled to the brim with budget-friendly party ideas. For example, look how Debbie at Refresh Restyle used Terra Cotta pots and a pretty Beverage Dispenser to create a DIY Beverage Dispenser Stand.
You don’t even need a cooler… pop some ice in a wheel barrow. Consider it a “portable bar.” 😀

Not a cook? Not a worry. Grocery Store Deli’s can do all the work for you. For example, packages of pre-sliced veggies served in mini plastic cups with a Ranch Dipping Sauce looks like you spent forever. No one needs to know you didn’t.

The idea is – don’t overthink it. Once your friends and family are at your home, they will be so happy to see you and spend time with you, they won’t care if you bought your fried chicken and cole slaw at KFC. Have lots of drinks – don’t forget the non-alcoholic …

Think about it. When you are invited over to someone’s house, aren’t you just pleased as punch to be there? Do you care that the cups are plastic and the food is from a deli? Nope, I’m sure you don’t.So what is holding you back? 🙂 Call some friends and invite them over soon. Don’t look back and wish you had!
