Summer is about breaking the rules a bit, isn’t it? Similar to picking out this year’s statement swimsuit, there is a certain care thrown to the wind and excuse to dip our toes into a little more color or pattern than we normally would. So why should your summer entertaining style be any different?
Whether you want to entertain in the climate-controlled oasis of your living room or create a perfectly playful retreat on the back patio, we’ve picked out a few of our current fave pops of personality sure to get any summer celebration started in style.
Who says table linens can’t be fashionable?! These printed textiles are so wildly stylish it would make any basic picnic or BBQ feel like a special event. Yes, they work even next to a paper plate because they are that good.
