For the Hostess: Garden Party
Katherine Mansfield’s short story The Garden Party starts with textbook weather: “And after all the weather was ideal,” Mansfield wrote. “They could not have had a more perfect day for a garden-party if they had ordered it.” Since weather can be so unreliable, we’re banking on something that’s constant: good decorating. We’ve put together a perfect set-up for outdoor entertaining. Just add friends, food, and libations.
