Al Fresco Party Ideas and Invitations

The birds have begun chirping and foliage is growing back, and after a long winter all I think about is the beginning of the warm, al fresco party season to come!

I know it's early, but I can almost see my summer backyard decked out for a party with the garden in full bloom, the evening lights twinkling from the pear tree, and friends eating, drinking and laughing to some good tunes.

Here are a few simple outdoor themed party ideas with matching invitations:
