Socially Distant Happy Hour on the Patio

We all need friends and many of us have missed entertaining and visiting the last few months.

FaceTime, Zoom, GoogleDuo, House Party, etc. can only fulfill the need of socialization for so long!

So, a Socially Distant Happy Hour was needed!

I pulled out the 'summer dishes' and prepped a cocktail and little nibbles for each of us....

and my "Guadeloupe napkins";

Each guest had their own tray...

...and favorite cocktail:

It is always fun to chat with friends, even if we were sitting 6' apart!

I have also been enjoying some solitude out on the front porch:

I am so happy the nice weather is here, and we can enjoy our porch and patio!  It's a perfect shady spot to enjoy breakfast, take a little nap or read after dinner!

Need an idea for a drink?  Today is National MINT JULEP Day:

  1. Each one is prettier than the other! Such a perfect way to enjoy a summer day.

  2. Your nibbles look so good, and you make each person feel like a special guest. What a gift!

  3. Looks like a fun way to enjoy guests and keep social distancing. Love the nibbles and drinks........

  4. I did a patio happy hour recently with some best friends, it was SO MUCH FUN!! Your cocktail trays are delightful!
