Traditionally: Something low_key but casually elegant and, ideally, pretty, such as someone's home, garden or backyard, or a restaurant or tea house. Our Take: Keep your budget and abilities in mind. Traveling to Chicago for a fancy brunch makes sense if a lot of attendees live just outside Chicago__but not if you're all based in Florida. Also, don't ditch the backyard just because it seems super traditional. Backyards have the distinct advantage of being free, and there are so many ways to make someone's backyard feel special. You can go with the tried and true__fresh flowers and paper garlands are classics for a reason. Or you can go for the unique_to_them touches__a tropical_themed collection of homemade desserts for your Hawaii_obsessed pal, for example.
Invites! Send them. Pick a cute one on Minted, find a free printable online, whip up something quick with stellar font choices and a pretty graphic, or go with an email template. As long as you've got the date, place, time, how to RSVP and the basics about food and activities (Should people eat before they come? Will there be gifts?), you're golden.
