Summertime entertaining means playful, casual outdoor parties. It's almost as if the grown-ups get to sit at the kids table and it's perfectly acceptable to set your table in crayon colored dishes.
Here's some bright and cheery items that we find highly practical (bug tent) or simply entertaining (chalkboard tablecloth) to add to your outdoor entertaining toolbox. We especially love the personal chip and dip trays, because no one really likes a double dipper.
