12Everyone needs a little mid-week entertaining inspiration, right?! Luckily, Brittany, one of our fabulous Entertaining Contributors, is winding down her busy season (she owns a vintage furniture rental company in Austin), so we get to take a peek at some of the fun events she has been hosting at her space! If this easy, breezy backyard bash doesn’t inspire you to host a few friends over, we’ve got to talk! Enjoy – xoxo, LKbrittany6Hello, babes! Brittany here! In most parts of the country right now, folks are watching the leaves turn colors and enjoying cooler temperatures. In Austin though, it’s still warm outside and probably will remain this way until the end of the month. Although I’m slightly jealous of everyone’s layered looks and their ability to cozy up by the fire, I can’t say I was too upset about hosting a backyard birthday bash at my house recently in perfect weather.brittany2It was my assistant’s birthday, and I figured what better way to honor her than to gather around a group of her closest pals and indulge in some delicious catered food? I’m a terrible cook, so it’s definitely better that I pay someone to handle the food. But, I did deck my yard out with some of her favorite pieces from my company’s inventory.10brittany4She wanted a casual, cool environment where everyone could sprawl out on poufs and rugs, and I happily obliged. We also setup a small lounge area for guests who didn’t feel like hanging out  on the floor with my chubby pups while eating… but really, if you don’t like bulldogs, something is wrong with you?!08brittany1To those of you already shoveling snow, I’m sorry! Maybe you should move down here to Texas and I’ll invite you over to my next get-together.brittany7
