Summer is officially here and that means it’s time to start entertaining! Whether you are planning to entertain outdoors, indoors, or a combination of both, here is a great little guide to get you and your home party-ready.
If you have a sideboard, this is a great piece to set up a buffet or bar on, and perfect for hiding away items you want protected. I love our reclaimed sideboard to add an ethnic element to any room!
Having a bunch of people over, but don’t have a ton of places to sit? Don’t worry that you suddenly need to buy another sofa or chairs! Floor pillows are a great, inexpensive way to provide additional seating and create a relaxed, boho vibe for your party.
Get creative with floral accents! Although a regular vases of flowers is always pretty, why not try something different? The floor vase on top of the table with enormous flowers makes a bold and beautiful statement! Likewise, baby’s breath morphs from boring to breathtaking when turned into a hanging floral ball.
A large table is perfect for parties, whether you need a place for your guests to sit or an area to serve your food. Adding chalkboard paper to display your culinary creations and drinks adds a fun twist AND protects your table!
To me, lanterns and summer go hand in hand. Whether you have bright colorful lanterns or a cluster of white ones, they’re a great way to add decoration and light to your fiesta.
Just because you don’t own outdoor furniture doesn’t mean your furniture can’t become that – simply take it outside! Adding some furniture that would normally be inside to the outdoors creates a festive, lighthearted mood. While I wouldn’t advise moving your expensive white linen sectional sofa to the back lawn, a lightweight chair (such as the cute one picture above) or settee moved outside could be a great way to add outdoor seating. Just make sure there’s no rain in the forecast – this is Portland, after all!
