Chic Summer Entertaining on the Cheap
As the weather heats up, the season of entertaining kicks into high gear. It’s the time of year to impress your guests with your stylish presentation.
Here’s the thing. Throwing a great party and looking great doing it doesn’t have to cost a lot. By throwing together just a few new trends, you can host parties that look like a million bucks.
What’s hot this summer:
For the hostess
Lace accents. Summer is all about being carefree when it comes to style and lace adds an elegant dimension to any outfit. Consider an off-white lace pencil skirt for a brunch gathering, or a lace overlay on an evening cocktail dress. Even bathing suits are showing a little lace this summer.
Floral/watercolor prints. This summer, floral prints paired with iridescent shades will fill store racks and pop up at your parties. Try a flowing floral blouse with Capri pants for a luncheon or a knee-length floral print dress for an evening barbecue.
Gladiator-style sandals. Create a timeless look from the feet up with a sandals inspired by Gladiator design. Metallic colors are always popular, but expect to see a lot of bold sandals in turqouise, yellow and white this summer.
Metallic accents. Elevate the elegance of raising a glass at your events with metallic-rimmed glassware — from wine glasses to beer steins. This simple addition makes any piece of glassware look more expensive, even if you got a great deal.
Bold serving dishes. Think hot magenta, bright teal and vibrant floral designs in everything from condiment dishes to large serving bowls. After all, the summer is all about having fun so you should infuse some of that spirit into your entertaining.
