Although temperatures are rising and school is out, summer is still ten days away. Which means you have time to get your backyard ready for cookouts and social-distance gatherings. Summer might look a little different this year, but I’ve put together an affordable backyard home decor fix, and the perfect weekend plan for you and your friends to enjoy an at-home weekend getaway.
Set The Mood
Dress The Part
Comfortable, playful dresses and rompers are the key to a cool summer. This look says elegant, chic but ready to enjoy the festivities. The key is to make sure you feel your best in whatever you choose to wear so you can enjoy your own party while hosting.
