September is here and summer is coming to a close… but the weather has never been more perfect for an outdoor, hot-summer’s-day BBQ! For a bit of inspiration, check out this great Orange, Pink & Red theme by Better Homes & Gardens. Colorful melamine plates and paper lanterns — ribbon adorned cups, pitchers and seat cushions — checkered table cloths and matching napkins! Get creative and incorporate any color scheme that you love, it’s easy to set the atmosphere and bring cohesion into a lively party through colors and patterns. And as always, it’s all about the details!
