Seeing as our outdoor entertainment resources are currently limited, we’re creating the perfect at-home sanctuary in our outdoor living space. This summer, we’re turning our backyards, decks and patios into an outdoor oasis for quiet nights with family and lively parties with our closest friends. Outdoor parties are a great way to socialize while still social distancing this summer, so let’s stay home!
