You would think with all the socializing we've been doing the past few weeks we would lie low for awhile. Not so. We've hosted two dinner parties last week and I'm certain we have several more in store this month. We Portlanders have to take advantage of this beautiful weather since al fresco dining opportunities are limited.
Speaking of entertaining outdoors, I put together a simple "summer table" [scroll down a bit] for The Stir. I was originally planning to use linen + wood as the base for the table setting, but opted to go with a more festive and summer-like color palette of fuchsia + black. Check out several other ideas for summer tables right here.
