Eva Amurri shares her Patio Refresh for Summer Hosting

My favorite way to entertain friends and family is outdoors! Which, of course, makes the summer months my prime hosting time. Last Summer, we had just moved into our new home, and it really wasn’t ready yet to have people over. This Summer, I’m so excited to really take advantage of our new patio, yard, and grill to host our community all season long. If you’re not doing anything major structurally to your outdoor spaces, sometimes a little décor refresh is all you need to really upgrade your own environment. I love what some nice throw pillows, some blankets, and a beautiful tablescape can do to transform! I also have some Serena and Lily lanterns that were an investment about six years ago…and they’re still my favorite way to wow guests. It was the best money spent! Just throw some candles in there, group them around your entertaining area, and it feels like you’re on vacation somewhere. Great plates and linens can have the same effect.

Today I thought I would share some gorgeous pieces to refresh your patio style for the upcoming season! Let me know which ones are your favorites.
