Dinner Party

I have been wanting to have a dinner party on our screened porch since we moved in and it finally happened over the weekend. I've decided September is a nice month for this type of get-together because it is still warm enough to dine comfortably outside but without the horrible humidity that looms mid-summer. We had a great evening chatting with friends and getting to know some new friends. I decorated with white lanterns above the table and the centerpiece was a store bought bouquet, scattered among Mason jars and bud vases I picked up awhile back at the thrift store. I think it came together nicely. Hooray for outdoor dinner parties!

Thanks for the nice comments everyone! And since you asked, the menu was blue cheese spinach salad with homemade poppyseed dressing and grilled shish-ka bobs with wild rice. Yum! (I wanted to make cranberry apple crisp for dessert but didn't get around to it...)
