Weekend Wanderings 10.1

Happy October! The weather here is incredible finally, PERFECT for patio entertaining. If you remember, when I made our potting bench (HERE) I had to first convince Captain that he would still be able to use the (table) space as his patio bar. In retrospect, this Potting Bench/Bar has been so functional, one of my best DIY’s!  Now that summer is over, I converted the potting bench into a “bar” for upcoming Holiday entertaining and for October when friends drop by to enjoy a cocktail under the October moonlight. That means I have been busy this week digging through my bag of last year’s forgotten bargains (mentioned HERE) to create a Spooky-themed bar. To make sure I have everything, I don’t yet, I always “test-out” my holiday recipes, as well as, tablescape & serving vignettes…and the spooky serving BAR looks totally awesome so far! Stay tuned, I’m waiting for Captain to concoct a special spooky cocktail that is I’m sure will be equally awesome…

What is your Dry-Run for Holiday entertaining?

Thanks for Meeting Me Lakeside!
