Summer Entertaining Tips
It is officially HOT down here in Atlanta and we are getting out our bathing suits, floats and summer entertaining pieces to enjoy the warm weather. From days spent out on the water to nights spent in the backyard with friends and family, we are so excited that school is out and summer is in! Here are a few tips and tricks to hosting a summer soiree and entertaining friends and family all season long.
5 steps for your summer soiree
1. Add some color
Summer is the chance to go wild with color and make things pop. We are crushing on blue hues and centered our tablescape around different shades of blue throughout.
2. Light it up
The lovely thing about summer is the fact that the sun stays out longer. Worried your dinner party will go way past sundown? Add lanterns and candles throughout the table (ps – Citronella Candles are a great way to keep the bugs away!)
3. Give it height
This is definitely a tip we have taken and ran with. A flat table can be very boring. Make sure you add pieces that bring in different height to the table! This will make it much more appealing to the eye + make products stand out more.
4. Make it fresh
We love mixing our faux botanicals with a little something fresh! Don’t be afraid to over do it in the center, but keep it simple and light in the smaller vases.
5. Simple and sweet
Some people think you need a bunch of ‘stuff’ on the table to make it feel like a party. But we agree that less is more. Let the platters and food cover the table and keep the decor simple and sweet!
