Monday Moods – Al Fresco Entertaining

Al Fresco Entertaining preppy style

Good morning and happy monday, Sloanies!  Today’s Monday Moods is all about the perfect spring time party.  Now that the weather has started to warm up for good (fingers crossed!), it’s time to start filling your social calendar with al fresco event with family and friends.  Whether you are the host or the guest there’s much to be had in the planning department – be it the perfect springy ensemble or a crowd pleasing menu.  We scoured our favorite source (Pinterest, of course) to find some inspiration for your next outdoor dining event.  This Caprese Garlic Bread would make the perfect appetizer, and this Honey Salmon cooked in foil looks mouthwatering and like a snap to make.  Ending with a light dessert such as mini berry pavolvas would be the perfect way to top off the night.  And lest we forget that any good party is not complete without a signature drink – sparkling lemonade and blueberry moscow mules.  Cheers!  In the fashion department we like to keep it simple for these types of events.  A chic navy and white striped dress paired with some leather sandals and your favorite sunglasses keeps you looking casual, yet polished.  Here’s to a fabulous season of dining outdoors!
