Outdoor Dinner Foiled Again!

I know it is wet and the sun is not sunny,
but we can have lots of good fun that is funny.” 

Dr. Seuss, The Cat in the Hat

Planning an outdoor dinner party is always tricky in July, especially when summer afternoon rainstorms are the norm.  But all that planning for the outdoors can be easily brought indoors with a positive attitude and some strategic switching of gears. Move in and don’t look back thinking the sun will eventually shine. It usually doesn’t.

Get inspiration from summer flowers and sunny colors. Here I brought the outdoors in with some summer blooms randomly arranged in glass pots used with yellow place mats and napkins. (Yellow is a happy color, remember that.) The food will still be good, the guests will still arrive, and you can still “have lots of good fun that is funny!”
