Set an atmosphere to enjoy sunsets from your patio

Perfect atmosphere to enjoy sunset in the patio

I love spending the evenings and watching the sunset in our patio. The warm weather here in Miami allows us to just sit and relax. And after preparing a couple of mojitos, we are ready to spend a couple of hours chatting about how the day went and even start planning for the future holiday.
To prepare this area and set its mood, I’ve placed a couple of accessories which makes it more welcoming and that bring in a magical atmosphere.
Hanging outdoor string lights and lanterns work as the main lighting in this little nook in our patio. The soft light quickly sets the mind into a relaxing mood. Candles (either battery operated one or wax) also add to this ethereal vibe and even better if they are Citronella to shoo away those mosquitoes.

A small basket now works as a small portable mini bar. Just place the beverages and glasses that are going to be used during this particular night and your ready. No need to move around your cart just yet!

I used melamine in almost everything, from plates to drink-ware. This material is super resistant to breakage and scratches and even dishwasher safe. Because I’m planning on reusing these pieces a couple of times during this hot weather (and with other themes), I chose a simple style which can be mix and match with other colors and designs.
Tropical fruits and flowers added the final touch to our setting making this spot our favorite “quasi” paradise stop to enjoy the final rays of the sun in our patio.
Do you love spending the nights in the outdoors? If so, which element is your must for making the area more welcoming?

    Oh, thank you Oscar. Your are such a sweet friend. I really had fun preparing this area. But I have to add that the background music (which was from Pandora) made all the difference in helping me to create this atmosphere. Have a lovely day!
