Style & Focus Weekend: Dine Alfresco
With the weather near perfect it would be a waste not to dine outdoors. Dining outdoors has been shown to be a mood-booster and heightens your senses.
Have a picnic. It can be traditional or non-traditional like a luxe picnic with champagne and creamy rich desserts. For the luxe picnic make sure to use real glasses, cutlery and plates it will make it seem more elegant.
Make reservations at a restaurant or cafe with a patio or deck (make sure to request outdoor sitting) so you can enjoy all the sight and sounds of the summer. Bonus: Arrange to meet friends for cocktails at a bar or nightclub with an outdoor deck to celebrate the last month of summer. More of a do-it-yourself kind of person, you can plan an outdooor dinner or cocktail party and make it casual or dressy.
