During warmer months, dining al fresco is one of the greatest pleasures! Nothing beats casual food, great conversation and festive drinks paired with a mild breeze. I find guests tend to be more relaxed and really feel at home. It doesn’t hurt that a little spilt wine is no biggie – just hose it off – cleanup is a piece of cake! I’m head-over-heels in love with this “relaxed and eclectic” Laurel Canyon backyard belonging to Nicole Richie and her family! This incredible summer dinner party Richie hosted for her girlfriends is a little bit glamorous, completely relaxed and utterly perfect in my book!
Do you eat outside often? If so, what’s your favorite cuisine to serve? I always enjoy doing something really casual!
