al fresco {the basics}

Al fresco season is officially here and I have been pulling out all my essentials for a lovely outdoor feast. If you are starting your al fresco arsenal from scratch here are a few basics that will surely make your party the talk of the town...and yes a conversation piece bottle opener, like this horseshoe really is essential.

Can I just say what a relief to find someone who actually knows what theyre talking about on the internet. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people need to read this and understand this side of the story. I cant believe youre not more popular because you definitely have the gift.
