Fine Living Network SmartTips with Kimberly Schlegel Whitman Al Fresco Entertaining
Kimberly Schlegel Whitman: Where do you go for a beautifully intimate dining experience? Try your own backyard, with these Al Fresco or out in the fresh air entertaining tips. For a relaxed atmosphere, playfully mix and match colored glasses, fun silverware and vintage plates.
Also remember to use napkin rings with a little bit of weight to keep the napkins from blowing away.
For night time entertaining, my favorite is to use clusters of small votive candles to make an intimate atmosphere. Lining a pathway with Citronella or Votive Candles is a great way to encourage guests to walk around and mingle.
And an old secret to keeping flies away, is to hang clear sandwich bags half filled with water. The flies reflection is been known to scare them off. Follow these tips to keep it sleek and effortless with your next Al Fresco dining experience.
