It's time to move the party outside!

Few do that better than Alexandra and Eliot Angle, authors of Cocktail Parties with a Twist and co-owners of Aqua Vitae, a Los Angeles-based event and interior design firm (323/663-1777). They designed this tasty no-host bar you can use for your next backyard party. "Inviting guests to make their own drinks is a great icebreaker," says Alexandra, "and you aren't stuck behind the bar all evening."

FOR THIS PARTY, YOU WILL NEED:


DECANTERS

Reuse wine bottles by adding your own labels and filling them with mint-infused syrup or vodka. Fill several ahead, then bring out as needed.


THROWS

Drape blankets over chairs for when the evening cools.
