Alfresco Chic

If you are lucky enough to have outdoor space, make the most of it during these warmer months. In expansive yards, carve out a little corner for a cozy European-style bistro. Even on a small back patio or deck some outdoor dining is still possible with a quaint setting like this. And don’t worry—no matter what your budget is, you can bask in some summer style. (-Allie)
