One of the perks of summer is being able to eat outside.  What better way to entertain guests than making a nice summer meal and enjoying it outdoors?
There is, however, something that can put a damper on your perfect evening: right when the sun goes down the mosquitoes come out to bite.  Never fear, citronella candles can help keep the bugs away.  Place one of these candles in a pretty hurricane at the center of your table and voila!  No more pesky bugs to bother you and your guests.
