In the spirit of transforming the backyard into an ultimate outdoor retreat,
Kmart celebrity designers Jaclyn Smith and Sandra Lee have teamed up to offer
tips on how to entertain with style. Additional tips can be found in the
Sandra Lee magazine now available at Kmart.

"First being a Texas girl and now a California girl, I'm always having family
and friends over for outdoor dinner parties, small get-togethers and of course
- to celebrate birthdays and holidays," said Jaclyn Smith, Kmart celebrity
designer and Hollywood icon. "Which is why I love working with Kmart to design
timeless and sensible pieces for outdoor entertaining that can be enjoyed
year-round no matter the occasion."

Jaclyn Smith's Tips for Setting the Scene

  oKnow Your Space – If you have a small patio or deck, don't overcrowd it
    with large furniture, rather use bistro sets that are designed for smaller
    spaces such as the Jaclyn Smith Stegner 3 piece bistro set. Larger spaces
    are great for the overstuffed cushion lounge sets and bold colors featured
    in the Jaclyn Smith Chandler 4 piece seating set.
  oColor Pop – Utilize umbrellas, seat cushions and pillows to bring in a pop
    of color. Switching out throw pillows is a quick and easy fix to changing
    the mood of any party. Try bright patterns for an afternoon barbeque, or
    bring in muted solid tones for a more sophisticated evening event.

Sandra Lee's Tips for Bringing the Table to Life

  oBring the Indoors Out – Unless you're hosting a child's birthday party,
    nix the paper plates and plastic utensils. Add sophistication and elegance
    to the backyard by bringing glass or ceramic plates to the patio table,
    and serve beverages in glasses. The Sandra by Sandra Lee collection sold
    exclusively at Kmart stores and offers great dining sets to
    complete any tablescape including the Sandra by Sandra Lee square
    porcelain dinnerware set. This small touch will go a long way.
  oFreshen Up the Table – Fresh flowers from the garden make for the perfect
    final touch to any tablescape. Depending on the theme of the party, switch
    up the flower arrangements to give an extra flare to the table. Use bright
    flowers like Gerber Daisies for afternoon parties, and Orchids, Hydrangeas
    or Peonies for an evening soiree.
