Brittany's Improvised Outdoor Dinner Party

Brittany sent us an email and some photos of a recent dinner party that she hosted. She took two excuses for not having a party (small apartment and summer heat) and simply threw them out the window - hosting a sit down dinner for 8 on the walkway of her apartment building....

She writes: I just thought I would send you some pics from a recent outdoor dinner party my boyfriend and I had in Chicago. We wanted to have some friends over for a party but realized that the inside of the apartment would probably just be too hot and cramped, so we decided to head outside. We set our tables up in the walkway behind the apartment building, and even used a high tree planter to create a wine and cheese bar. The brick walls and the city were the perfect background for our party and there was a lovely breeze. Everyone loved it. Just wanted to share. Thanks for all the great posts.

Thanks for the inspiration, Brittany!
