9 summer entertaining ideas

Summer entertaining is easily one of my favorite things. Any excuse to get dressed up + drink margaritas with friends is a good day in my book! With an upcoming summer party of my own on the schedule, I couldn’t think of a better time to share a few fun entertaining ideas. Whether you’re planning a large scale get-together or just a low-key gathering, here are 9 ideas to take your night up a notch:

ONE//Tassel Garland– The prefect accent to a food or dessert table. I love these handmade options on Etsy, or these pre-made, budget friendly picks, too.

TWO//Cotton Candy S’mores–  An elevated take on the classic campfire treat. Recipe here.

THREE//Fruit Infused Ice Cubes– A cool way to jazz-up a summer cocktail. My favorite rendition here.

FOUR//Colorful Mason Jars– The perfect DIY centerpiece {just add flowers}. Even better as a take-home treats for guests.

FIVE//A Signature Cocktail– Personalize the evening with a fresh, fruity drink created just for the celebration. Add citrus to garnish for an even more snap-worthy ensemble.

SIX//Create a Theme– An easy way to tie an event together, from table to treats. I’m partial to this idea, which would work well for both birthdays and casual gatherings alike.

SEVEN//Cool Treats– A great end to a hot summer’s day. Make this easy fruit variety or this boozy rendition for a perfect cap to the evening.

EIGHT//Dress your Drink– These floral straw toppers are an ideal compliment to a festive summer drink. Add in a striped straw for an even more fun effect.

NINE//Dip Dyed– A low-budget method to spruce up your flatware + your dining table. The best part? Clean-up is a breeze!
