Summer Settin’

Tuesday, June 04, 2013 | Category: Uncategorized

It’s summer time and we all know what that means.  It’s time to doll up the back yard and throw as many outdoor parties as you possibly can!  This is in between all those hours at the beach, the pool,  summer camps, visits to grandma and grandpa — but wherever you are and however busy you are this summer you should always find the time to sit back and enjoy the weather, some good food and a few drinks with friends.  Setting a table and planning for the party is one of my favorite things to do because it’s all about the details.  Let your creative mind go and get funky with your settings, lights and other decorative touches.  You’ll feel cheeky and your guests will love the effort you put into making their party experience a fun one!

Chanced upon the colourful bites photo and made me prepare that for lunch for today!

All of these pics are pretty phenom, not going to lie, but that scene with the long green striped table and the white back laser cut chairs is mindblowing to me. At night, no less. Intimate wedding perfection.
