there were two things i was certain of when i got engaged
the guy i was going to marry
and that there would be mason jars at my wedding
lots of them
everything else seemed to fall into place
around all the mason jars of course
...and then came baby...

al fresco: entertaining outside

{via real simple}

as i live in a little apartment in the big apple, i'm currently dreaming of an outdoor gathering a la the pictures above. tea light candles, a few fresh flowers and a couple bottles of wine would make a pretty stellar night in my book. for us new yorkers, unless you can jet out of the city on the weekends, these al fresco evenings are reserved for the park or, if you're lucky, a rooftop.

now that the weather is nice, i think it's time to put a lil' outdoor wine & cheese party in motion. not one of those stuffy wine & cheese parties. (no offense to any aficionados). everyone can bring a bottle of wine and a type of cheese that pairs well with it. no notecards or tasting comments, just a lot of wine & cheese consumption. or better yet, perhaps a beer and/or whiskey tasting per the request of my love.
