W e're halfway through the summer and we have to enjoy it to the fullest. Before we know it, the colder and shorter days will be here! This is why I decided it would be a good idea to have some friends over for a good time!

First thing I did was bring the inside of my home to my backyard. Don't be afraid to use your favorite pillows outside, nothing will happen to them! When everyone leaves, I just bring the pillows back inside and it's done! 

et's talk about food! You don't need to make anything spectacular to make a great impression. Just look for the biggest tray you have and fill it up with all your treats. There's not a right and wrong way to do do things. Just because you're putting out cheese doesn't mean you need to put out meats. I filled my tray up with cheese, fresh fruit, veggies, chips, cookies, yogurt, and more. Like I said, there's no right or wrong way when it comes to food! Just have fun and you'll see the great outcome. 

Use your imagination when it comes to setting out appetizers or snacks. These cake stands from Opulent Treasures are beautiful and perfect to use in a garden party. Don't they look super cute? Like I've mentioned before, cake stands aren't only for cake. You can use them for an infinite amount of things. I'll demonstrate more ways you can use cake stands in another post. These white ones come in a set of 3 and you can buy them HERE. I use them for everything. They're great quality and I'm obsessed with them. You can also find them in different colors!
(Antique gold, antique silver and white)

ere's an example of how you can use your Cake stands. I flipped it over and inserted a small clear bowl inside and filled it with fruit. I loved the end result. It's different and elegant at the same time.

This cake stand is a large size and to give it more height, I added another cake stand on top. It's as simple as that! This one from Opulent Treasures looks amazing, elegant, and fun! You can also find cake stands with the base attached to the bottom on the Opulent Treasures website.

Seating is so important when it comes to parties or get-together's. Try bringing out some chairs from inside or even benches. You're guaranteed to have a beautiful space and lots of room for guests to sit.

Opt for adding an umbrella if possible. This will make sure guests are free from the sun and it also gives your backyard a great look. 

Another great idea is to bring out blankets for guests so they have them handy when the sun starts to go down. Like I said, bringing the inside atmosphere outside is recommended!

I love these Cake Stands. They make my small get together look amazing and without having to do too much work. They're simply fantastic.

I brought out some things from inside like my pillows so it looked more comfy and inviting and also romantic at the same time. Another thing I brought out was my bar cart. This way I was able to bring out some drinks, cups and ice, and it looked fantastic.

As mentioned above, if you want more ideas on how to use these stands, i'll be writing up another post on that soon. I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I loved writing it for you! Getting together with friends is a great way to relieve stress.
