Refresh Summer Easy entertaining
Easy entertaining Guide to REfresh your guests in style
Summer Entertaining Tips
- COLORFUL + FUN PAPERGOODS: Keep an assortment of striped straws, printed napkins and paper goods on hand. Even a sparkling lemon water becomes more fun with lemon and lime garnish and a striped straw!
- SIMPLY DELICIOUS DESSERTS: It’s easy to whip up something that looks great but isn’t complicated. Other suggestions for this setting would be lemon bars, fruit tarts or frosted cookies. No time for baking? No problem, just pick up mini cupcakes or cookies and add a little fresh fruit garnish to make them your own. We have some great recipes for entertaining here and on Pinterest.
- FRESH FLOWERS + FRUIT: Whether you pick up a bundle of tulips or sunflowers at the market, or can snip some from your garden, fresh flowers always add that much needed element to an entertaining set up. Of course we recommend having fresh fruit on hand all summer for easy snacking and entertaining. A bowl of citrus or apples not only looks colorful and adds to your decor, but is healthy and practical. Easy, yet true!
- GO-TO ENTERTAINING PIECES: Collect an assortment of trays, cake pedestals and serving pieces that make pulling together an impromptu gathering a snap. Having different pieces at your disposal enables you to have different heights to fit whatever you might be serving. Take a look at our assortment of cake pedestals to find something you can pick up locally.
