On Saturday we had a barbecue for all the neighbours who helped us build our backporch (which I still have to show you!). We had really mixed weather all day so we decided to set the tables in our huge doorway (gateway? entry? Dear English natives please tell me what the right term is for this, thank you).
I remember when we first viewed the house our real estate agent was all about the *possiblities* of this space, and how we would throw parties here, protected from the weather and still outside, yadda yadda yadda. In fact, this space needs a lot of love. Usually it houses our fire wood, our garbage cans and the car if we aren´t too lazy to bring it in.
Having said that, after hours of cleaning the space, and after I brought in my vast collections of lanterns as well as some flowers from the garden, it looked kind of rustic and cozy.
And romantic, after we lit all the lanterns and candles.
But I don´t have any pictures of that because I was busy having a great time. It was a lovely summer party. The End.
