Summer Entertaining by Candlelight

FriYAY = happiness, so let’s set the mood for a dreamy weekend with a candlelight dinner. Step up your plans with an alfresco meal over wine and candles.

I love using candles as an alternative to flowers — especially if I’m hosting last-minute. I keep several candles of varying heights in the house, as a means of stepping up the mood. I always find people are more willing to spill their secrets with me over a candlelight dinner, which is really important for any kind of relationship. Candles = intimacy.

Plus, they’re actually a lot less expensive than splurging on fresh flowers, especially if you’re planning a big event [like a wedding]. To add life to the table, line the center with greenery [and a few blooms from your garden if you’d like].

I hope you indulge in a magical weekend with those you love…
