Summer essentials for outdoor entertaining with Brittni Mehlhoff of Paper and Stitch. #summer #summerentertaining

I’m doing all I can to be outdoors so far this season, before the weather gets completely unbearable with heat. So, the second we moved in, I started getting things in order for our covered patio in the backyard. It’s not finished yet, BUT I wanted to share a sneak peek with you today, since it’s starting to come together. And, also wanted to share how I’m entertaining for the start of summer, with Memorial Day just a few days away!

I teamed up with Article to put together my summer essentials for outdoor entertaining – just in time for their huge Memorial Day sale (up to 50% off), which is happening right now through May 28th! Click through for all my summer entertaining favorites.

6 Weekend DIYs to Try! #weekendprojects #diy

What are you up to this weekend? Any DIYs planned? We’ve been up to our ears in house projects since we moved in at the end of April and I’m hoping this weekend we can actually just relax and not do any house related stuff.

My birthday was a couple of days ago and I was out of town. So I think Jeff and I are going to celebrate this weekend somehow, with something small.  Maybe even a little cake (always interested in an excuse for cake)… and hopefully not anything that involves drywall tape. Ha.

Anyway, if you’re in the mood for a weekend project or two, I have a handful of my favorites all rounded up for you. Here are 6 must-try weekend DIY ideas…
