The end of summer and the official start of fall will {hopefully} bring temperatures that are a bit cooler, and at least here in Texas, it means that you can once again bear to spend time outdoors. Take advantage of a nice evening with a casual, yet elegant, dinner party on your patio. Celebrate a birthday, or get everyone together “just because.” Think modern when it comes to décor. Black and celery green are chic, yet organic enough to blend in well with an outdoor setting.
