Al Fresco Date Night on the Patio


HOT HOT HOT!!  We’ve FINALLY been blessed with sun and heat after months and months of praying to the sun gods (not to sound dramatic or anything, but we’re SO over Spring!).  Basically within the last week, our weather went from freezing and rainy to SUMMER.  The weather here in Vancouver is completely unpredictable and is probably the number one conversation starter around the city.


Speaking of sun, I think it’s about time we talk patios!!  I’m envisioning lots of lunches, dinners and drinks on the patio this summer – if only we could get our patio in order!  As you probably already know, we’re in the midst of a huge home renovation and it seems like something or another takes priority over other spaces in and around the house.  Like our patio/backyard, for example.  It needs WORK.  I feel like we’ll end up tackling this project sometime next year but, for now, let’s dream about that future patio space and, instead, whip up an outdoor tablescape for two!


Typically, we’d love to invite our friends over and throw a backyard party, but lately I’ve been longing for a date night with hubby.  Think late summer evening backyard date with a bottle of wine after the kids are in bed…sounds about right!




I even had the best little helper…




Looking for ways to style your patio space?  I’ve rounded up my top picks below:




1. Hammock | 2. Rug | 3.  Glassware | 4. Pitcher | 5.  Dinnerware | 6.  Placemat | 7.  Serving Tray | 8. Platter | 9.  Flatware
