The Great Outdoors


Photobucketbar 2PhotobucketPhotobucket

Good morning, sweets!  Hope your week is off to a wonderful start.

It's a wet start to the week here in NYC but my mind is already looking forward to Memorial Day weekend.  The weather is supposed to be much better so that means time to start planning for a few outdoor festivities with friends at the house. And I'd better get a move on because being that it's a short week, we get to kick it all off on Friday.  Better get planning away!

What are your favorite things to eat al fresco?

Enjoy the day, lovelies!

xoxo

The day started well, with a clear blue sky and sunshine, but now it's raining again. I think some dark chocolate is in order. :)

Best part of summer is the al fresco dining - BBQ, appetizers, and that bar set up looks perfect. Great photos - love the first picture, her eye make up is perfect!

I am so excited for a nice long, relaxing weekend! :)

LatteLisa LisaHjalt said...

I don't know what it is about the al fresco dining, I think it's just the feeling of summer and being able to sit outside. It's just so energetic.

I am soooo excited for the three day weekend, also! My mind is just going crazy with the possibilities. So excited for all the festivals and parties!

Have a beautiful day!

I would love that patio furniture.

I like eating cold salads and BBQ stuff, either meat or veggies.

labor day weekend BBQ - al fresco style would be my fav. We're having a cookout with the grill right next to the lagoon, so i'm excited!

SabinePsynopsis said...

Perfect holiday pictures! Summer has finally arrived in London - so life is sueeet! xoxo

zanetastyle said...

open fire roasted anything for me (piglet will always do it) and with some sparkly Italian wine...Lambrusco is one of my favourites... or good Czech beer please (:

M.E said...

Your picture selection is great! I love eating anything al fresco but if it's warm outside I like to stay light... Various crostini's and bruschette accompanied by a chilled glass of Rose' wine will do :)

This past weekend we ate al fresco (aka picnic at the beach). I had a lobster salad and it was so good! It was just nice to be outside, enjoying the warm spring (almost summer : ) air. It's been raining here for two days as well, so I have high hopes for a sunny and beautiful holiday weekend!
Fingers crossed!

Grilled shrimp and champagne. And of course, here in Maine, a lobster bake on the water works well too!
