Summer Entertaining

post by Village Antiques
We had our Spring Fling at the end of April and it was a wonderful evening and event! We rolled out the red carpet for all our fabulous guests and indulged in a fun evening of taking photos, enjoying flavored martinis and light bites, and even a little dancing was seen all around the shop! Take a look below at some of the pics from our event! 
 
 
 
 
 
Speaking of events, I wanted to share a few tips with you today for summer entertaining. 
 
When people ask me how I like to entertain,  I have a few key things in mind to make my guests feel welcome.  I love welcoming everyone with a drink, fresh food, fresh flowers and candles. Apart from that, it all depends on the season, and with the summer weather upon us it’s time for some summer-style entertaining! 
 
Here are some ideas to inspire you to invite some friends, neighbors or family over for a summer soirée
 
Tips:
 
Look for inviting outdoor seating. If you’re having a summer soiree or even a casual swim party, consider comfortable outdoor seating. Having a cozy outdoor space can make your interiors extend into your outdoor space.
 
Take a look at these pieces that could go outdoors:
 
 
 
 
I love looking out for bins and containers I can use to store COLD beverages! How do you like this neat wine carrier, I think it would be perfect for holding cold bottles of wine when entertaining outside.
 
 
 
Serving ware – I love large creamware platters that I can just pile high with mini-sliders and roasted vegetables. I tend to buy creamware or creamware-inspired pieces for all my serving ware so I can mix and match. That way I can keep adding to my collection whenever and wherever I shop!
 
 
 
 
Bring in some color – this is such a fun time of year, and bright pops of color are welcome and exciting! Bring some of this to your entertaining by accessorizing with bright candles, pillows and other items.
 
 
 
It was great fun to see everyone at the Spring Fling, and we look forward to seeing you all at our next event!
