The day dawns sunny and bright, and a soft breeze is whispering an impossible-to-turn-down invitation to come outside. Share an enchanting afternoon—and delightful summer fare—with friends on the front porch.
Southern summer favorites turn a simple gathering into an unforgettable occasion.
FRONT PORCH LIVING
To celebrate these halcyon days of summer, stage an impromptu get-together on the porch. Hydrangea blue and sunshine yellow inspire the palette, so tuck fresh-cut flowers into a variety of on-hand containers to set the scene. Choose pretty baskets and vintage linens for easy accents, then sit back, relax, and enjoy the view!
A simple menu makes porch entertaining a breeze. We put a Southern Lady spin on favorite regional fare with a lively version of pimiento cheese and a fruit-infused blend of that essential refresher, sweet tea. These simply fresh recipes—from a Creamy Basil Dip paired with vegetables to a delightful fruit salad—will have you ready for fun and fellowship in no time. Just save some room for our mouthwatering Lemon Coolers!
