Summer is all about dining al fresco. And there is nothing more I love than hosting friends for a casual and laid back summer meal. But with only a small, seven feet by eleven feet inner city balcony, creating an inspiring place to host my dearest required some creativity. Today I’m sharing the tricks I used to create an enchanted inner city outdoor entertaining space for anyone with a small, perhaps uninspired patio or balcony.
I’m not sure why, but summer always sneaks up on me! Despite the endless yearning, I find I’m scrambling every year to get my outdoor space ready. And truthfully, it’s usually days (or moments) before entertaining outside that my space really comes together. So, if like me you’re in a rush to get your space together in time for the July long weekend, I’ve put together three simple, yet distinct looks to help you create the perfect patio.
