Hubby and I are hoping to host a housewarming party once we’ve put the final touches on our house, and once the temperature drops about 30 to 40 degrees (today’s high will be 101).
I’ve always liked the idea of hosting an outdoor dinner, like the ones you see in the Italian countryside with the long tables, jugs of wine and plenty of food served family-style. Of course, Tuscany probably doesn’t have the mosquito issues we have here, so early autumn is likely the best time for us to host such a party.
I really like the “firebowl” in the photo above and think that would be so cool for a backyard party, or just to lounge by in the cool evenings. Sculptor Elena Colombo actually designed the bowl for her cottage on the shore of Peconic Bay in New York. Colombo started a business designing propane-fueled, no-logs required firebowls. Although, I have to admit I love the smell of real logs burning on a fire, but Colombo’s invention is a great idea.
So, dear blogger friends, did any of you host a party when you moved to your new digs? If so, was it a cocktail party? Brunch? I wish I could have all of you over to celebrate our new house. In the meantime, I really need to take some photos of our new abode and post them on the blog. I promise, I’ll get on it soon!
Happy weekend everyone!
