Hailey throws the dreamiest dinner parties. She has the perfect porch for it, with surrounding lit-up trees and a big bench to cozy up on.
These kinds of nights are the essence of springtime.
i tell ya olivia sometimes i just wanna hop on a plane and come visit you. show up with a bag, here i am! don't know how long i'll stay, but let's have some fun. you make Charleston seem like a dream world.
i love the flowers, the lights draped in the trees, and the candles. i wish we had a big ol' porch for dinner parties…
I'm always in the middle of a love affair with NYC and then I look at your blog and remember that the south and charleston and Nashville are the places that really have my heart.
I seriously want to be invited to one of you dinner parties Olivia! They always look so amazing! Maybe you can throw one in Nashville next time ;)
These look magical! How fun!
olivia, your photos get me every time. i look forward to your posts every morning. they never dissapoint.
Absolutely enchanting! That will be me tonight. Minus the porch. Thanks for reminding me I need to restock my candles… :)
Guh, porches are the weak spot behind my knees. Love these.
Love the mood :) U picture them @perfect timing =)
your life is like a dream.
I don't know a better word than, "porch." Love this.
I've followed your blog for a while but this post was just too lovely not to comment. As a country girl turned NYC transplant, these pictures make me crave open spaces and lazy dinners even more–love these!
My oh my teach me your ways! I'd love to throw a great dinner party next year in my house.
love the decor!
Everything is so dreamy! Love it!
I've always dreamed of a big porch, surrounded by big trees and grass and flowers and everything else that Arizona seems to be lacking. (Ha!) Thank you for letting me have a peek at your beautiful world.
This is like a dream. I can't wait to throw more outdoor dinners in the warm months. :)

I came across your blog a few weeks ago and unfortunately I forgot to bookmark it. I've been trying to find it again and thank goodness I have. This was the post I came across and it stuck with me because I fell in love with your idea of having a dinner party on my front porch. So I searched in my history for "porch" and here I am again! This has been so inspiring thank you! I'm following now!
