After a month of back and forth weather in April, it looks like warmer temps are finally here in May! Summer in Nashville is the absolute best. I spend most of my time out on our front porch enjoying the weather and sunshine! What makes front porch hangs even better is when you have a few of your gal pals. So today, I’m sharing how to plan and decorate an outdoor patio for an evening with your girlfriends.
TIPS TO ORGANIZE THE PERFECT PATIO PARTY
- Clean off your patio. After all the spring pollen, rain and dirt, your space needs a good clean. Wipe down the table, chairs, and railing, and sweep and mop the porch area.
- Hang up some pretty lights. Nothing sets the mood for an evening like some pretty porch lights. I bought a timer with mine so they come on every night without me having to think about it!
- Decorate your porch. Make your porch a cute and comfy space for you and your girls. Add some pillows, blankets, vases, greenery, candles, anything to jazz up the space!
- Put together a grocery list and get to the store. Make note of any special allergies or diets your friends might have. If I don’t make a detailed list, I always forget something and have to make a special trip back.
My shopping list for a girl’s night is:
– Cubed cheese
– Fruit (strawberries, blueberries, grapes)
– Hummus and chips
– Fresh flowers
My favorite Prosecco is La Marca. La Marca Prosecco believes in bringing sparkle wherever you go by owning and inspiring spontaneous celebration. Write your own rules for sparkling, give new reasons to enjoy, and encourage “why not?” La Marca isn’t just for special occasions—it’s about making everyday sparkle.
La Marca has a crisp, fresh and fruit forward taste that is universally pleasing for many palates. The elegant and original blue package of La Marca is versatile for high and low occasions. So from an engagement dinner to a night on the porch with my girls, La Marca is perfect for any occasion!
- Set up and have fun! You’ve done all the work, now sit back and enjoy the patio party with your girls!
