2} instead of using dishes for all your foods, use jars to hold strawberries, or candies.[pictured]
3} Bring the indoors out. take some throw pillows to the patio furniture.
4} Don't worry about decorating the table, just place some potted plants in the middle. Staggering the pot sizes and colors create more dimension.
5} layer a couple simple cotton sheets instead of a table cloth.
6} for more lighting, put christmas lights on the floor, under a floor length tablecloth. It creates a subtle glow as the sun goes down.
7} Lighting makes a party, for the outdoors, more is MORE!
8} Serve cold foods, use your fingers, and provide napkins.
9} Every drink is more fun with straws, just buy fun straws! [Pictured]
