KCL Friday Finds

Happy weekend!! We are still busy over here with getting settled in. I know Ken and I will be utterly happy when we don't have to do anything extra to do...just a normal day-to-day routine plus our dates on the weekends. We will at least be on more of a schedule this coming week, as our kiddos start at their new school! And I've managed to get on a bit of a schedule with work, with just a few extra things on my to-do. I hope you all have a good weekend and enjoy some of my favorite links from the week. Grab a cup of coffee and sit back and relax. Image via Chevrons & Eclairs.

5 Essentials for Chic Outdoor Entertaining


Whether you enjoy grilling by the pool or a casual evening roasting marshmallows around a fire pit, it's the perfect time to take your entertaining outdoors. Here are some great patio finds to get you inspired for your outdoor parties this season. Pictured Above >

1. Outdoor Seating - I'd love a beautiful outdoor dining set for summer dinner parties, (pictured below) but for lounging, I also love the idea of an outdoor loveseat with a coffee table and side chairs, if you have a large patio space of course. For poolside seating, try some wicker chaise lounge chairs.

2. Hanging Lights - For outdoor entertaining at night, string lights make everything so much more beautiful. I love how so many of the local restaurant patios in Tulsa decorate with cafe lights. You can string them up between tree or under a patio cover. If you have a yard but not a clearly defined entertaining area, you can use these lights to define a space where you want to entertain. Pictured: weatherproof globe string lights. Candle light is so pretty for outdoor entertaining as well. Try some big lantern candle holders to add to the decor of your patio.

3. Cold Drinks - You have to keep the cold drinks coming when you're entertaining outdoors. And while yes, a cooler full of beers would suffice, you can take it up a notch with a pretty pitcher full of sangria or something like a fruit-infused tea or lemonade.

4. A Place in the Shade - I don't know how it is where you live, but I live in Oklahoma, and when it's hot, it's hot! And when the skies are clear, there isn't a cloud in sight and the sun beats down hard. Shade is a must for keeping cool. If you don't have a covered patio, try a large umbrella.

5. Fun Serving Ware - From cute disposable products to colorful place settings and large serving dishes, you can add so much color and extra decor to your outdoor space. These mason jar glasses are perfect for serving summer drinks.
