I love entertaining guests during the summer: outdoor dining, delicious BBQ fare, great company and tons of sunshine. So when I’m designing the perfect outdoor space for my summer fiestas, I usually think of decorating with lots of bright colours to complement a fun atmosphere. While you may not have the budget for a big outdoor makeover, it’s easy to give your backyard a boost with a few choice accessories.
