Summer in the City from IKEA

2015-05-06_16-11-59 As most of you know, I am BIG on entertaining outdoors which is one of the reasons we built our home with tons of outdoor spaces. Al fresco dining is one of the most important components to adding instant ambiance to any party.

I’m a huge fan of IKEA; I shop there for props for party photo shoots, and of course while cruising the aisles for my clients, I always find things for my own spaces and for my own parties. This week in Atlanta Magazine’s Home {where I am Entertaining Editor} we will feature a gorgeous Swedish Style engagement party. For party decor we bought lots of props at YES, IKEA. As an aside, I feel strongly that Swedish style is about to become a big trend in the U.S.

I really love this whimsical lighting, and lighting is so important for outdoor entertaining because it sets the mood. How sweet is this collection of tabletop products?

Check out the latest issue of Atlanta Magazine’s Home on newstands May 13th for our Swedish Syle Party. It’s amazing, but more on that next week.

I love the way IKEA is stylish, simple, and affordable which is my mantra in my book Picture Perfect Parties.

Check out the these wonderful finds at IKEA, and make your outdoor gatherings a big hit.
