It’s All in the Details: Everything You Need for an Evening Outdoors

After being cooped up for months—even when it’s with your favorite people—a little fresh air goes a long way. Switching up the scenery for a few hours can create space for conversation, reinvigorate connections, and move stifled energy. Our recipe for a family dinner alfresco is simple: Select your jumpsuit and set the table, sauté the shrimp and shake up the margaritas, then break out the bug spray and after-dinner activities to keep everyone from running back to their screens.
