How to Entertain Outside Like a Boss This Summer

No paper plates allowed.

Summer is here, which means we all want to be outside. And considering that I spent a good portion of the winter staring out my snowy window dreaming of warm summer nights, I’m not wasting any time heading outdoors.

But just because we take a few steps out our back door and into the yard, doesn’t mean all style and substance should be eschewed. Sure, paper products are practical in that they don’t break and you can toss them in the garbage…but, um, your guests aren’t going to be wowed and your beautiful chimichurri steak isn’t going to look nearly as impressive on a flimsy paper plate. Your superb hostessing skills demand otherwise!

To get you there, I recommend the below luxe entertaining products that will provide your friends and family with a seamless experience indoors and out. The list comprises servingware, gadgets and furniture pieces that are not only good-looking, but also sturdy and effective at providing the best outdoor experience possible. So, uncork that bottle of rose, fire up the grill and invite some friends over, because the summer party season has officially arrived.
