Millennials, this ones for you! Summer is wrapping up but there’s still time to squeeze in a few more memorable summer parties with friends! Today we are breaking down my 4 tips that will ensure your next party is completely fabulous. The best part is these tips are super simple and super easy so you can spend quality time with your guests and get all the praise for the summer party of the year. Ready? Let’s get to the countdown!
Our first tip is all about setting the right mood. The first question to ask is who are your guests? From there you can pull a common theme that everyone will feel comfortable with. Creating a menu based on your theme is a great way to tie everything together. Once you have the menu and theme down it’s time to check out tip 2.
Not only does creating one signature cocktail free up time so you can focus on your guests but it’s also a really fun way to add more inspiration to your theme. You can really have as much fun as you want with this cocktail. Make it ahead of time and get a gorgeous pitcher to showcase your drink. We really love this pitcher from Lenox!
This Tuscany Classics Pierced Pitcher makes even the simplest cocktail look instantly glam! It’s handcrafted of Lenox fine crystal. Find yours HERE.
Don’t get us wrong, the decorations are definitely a great way to set the mood for your summer party, but it’s not the star of the show. Save your energy on making delicious foods and drinks with a stunning tablescape and keep the decor simple and chic like this balloon covered in a piece of tulle. We also love lanterns and string lighting, specifically for parties happening outside. The lights really create a great ambiance.
Let the star of the party shine by creating a stunning tablescape with gorgeous fine china by Lenox. This pattern is plated in gold with sophisticated stripes. Make your focus the table where you will be dining and chatting with your guests. Lenox makes setting an elegant table simple with this Audrey 5 piece set. It’s durable bone china and dishwasher safe, because functionality is still important when you throw a glamorous summer bash! Find this set at Macy’s HERE.
