When planning a garden party a few weeks out, it's always wise to have a backup plan on hand in case Mother Nature RSVPs. Keeping in mind that slickers don't make attractive party attire, the ideal location will have some shelter nearby so that the festivities can be easily moved. A covered or screened-in porch is ideal, and it never hurts to have a canopy or two on hand. Moving indoors is always an acceptable option if space permits, but if the party must be held outside, be prepared to make an executive decision based on the weather forecast in the days before. It never hurts to have a proposed rain date in mind.
