www.marialiberati.com http://spaghettiatmidnight.blogspot.com Summer is the season of far off getaways to exotic locales and beachfront bonfires. In Euorpe we look forward to fireworks on the beaches on the Riviera. It is also a time to relax and gather with friends. A perfect time to soak up the warmth and beauty of a thousand sunsets. Fortunately, my life and work necessitates that I am in Europe for half of the year. However, not everyone can head off to an exotic locale in the summer. But distance is not a necessary ingredient for a wonderful vacation. Your vacation can literally be as close as your own backyard.
Garden parties are a great ,easy way to bring friends and family together without a stressful trip to the airport. They can be as posh or casual as the imagination allows. With the perfect decor- even a rooftop in Brooklyn can be turned into a picnic in Tuscany. or an expanse of grass and trees can be your own little island paradise.
In my next few entries , because the start of the summer is upon us I will be bringing you tips and ideas to turn any outside space into a perfect summertime soiree with the help of one of our associate editors- Nicole Sonsini.
Tune in tomorrow for some great tips to get your summer started.
