Take the party outside with a simple low-cost backyard get-together
Have plenty of candles or torches on hand for illumination after the sun goes down. Add a special glow by lining your driveway or the path to the backyard with luminarias―fill paper lunch bags with 1 cup of sand and nestle in a tea light. For the table, place votives inside empty jars; the glass offers extra intimacy and helps keep flames from blowing out. Scatter citronella candles around to ward off bugs.
