One of the reasons I love spring and summer so much is that having people over feels even more festive outdoors. One of my favorite childhood memories is going to a pig roast every summer for Memorial Day. There was never enough seating to go around so they just cut stumps from a fallen tree that people would move around and sit on. There’s something more relaxed about an outdoor party that makes hosting even more fun-- plus if the weather is super-hot your guests will be happy with little bites and crudités.
