Five Things: Summer Entertaining

Wednesday, June 20, 2012
Today is officially the first day of Summer. It may be tough to beat the heat down in Texas, but don't let that stop you from some serious Summer Solstice entertaining. So sit back and relax (hopefully with a fan and a cool beverage) -- we've got the goods lined up for your hostess duties whether you're poolside, lakeside or oceanfront.

Pick something colorful for your lively libations - they'll look great in your guest's hands and be a prime point on the tabletop. For linens, go luxe with the White Hot Summer theme for a head table or focal point for the evening. #1 (Clockwise from top): Classic and Parisian Carnival Glass, Blue-Green Glassware, Elise Cut Crystal Stemware, all POSH Couture Rentals. #2 (Clockwise from top left): Ivory Petal Taffeta, Ivory Circle Ribbon Taffeta, Ivory Rosette, all Resource One Linens, exclusively at POSH Couture Rentals.

This playlist will get the good vibes flowing for an lazy Summer evening filled with friends and laughter. As always, the best bet is iTunes, but if you aren't a fan of Spotify yet, it is highly recommended.

We love our Lily Server and wanted to showcase a simple Summer dish that would perfectly fit the dish and the season. We called Kim Jameson at Cassandra's Fine Catering to see what she recommended. She originally found the recipe above in Bon Appetit and swears by it for Summer entertaining.

What kind of friends would we be if we didn't give you some advice on what to wear for hostess/guest duties? All of these looks are simple to achieve and can easily be switched out for other activities and events. // 1.
