You're Invited ...

With a trip to Nantucket around the corner, I'm dreaming of some time outdoors, aren't you? It's the picnics and pool parties we've been waiting for all year long! This summer however, I'm adding a little chic to my soiree. Here are some great BLUE items to take your party to the next level.

I'd reach for these classic ballets in turquoise all summer long!

J. Crew classic leather ballet flats $125

 Perfect for a Sunday brunch poolside!

I would serve these with mojitos at dusk.

Indoor/outdoor rugs have come a long way.

A couple of other party pointers ..

1) Serve your favorite cocktails with colorful napkins and paper goods.

2) Create drama by lighting up your patio plants and adding votive candles, lanterns and portable can lights.

3) Spray a vintage table white and set up as an outdoor summer bar. You'll always be party ready!
4) Create a playlist of your favorite songs.
5) Put together a hostess basket for your guests including fashionable insect repellents.  
Enjoy yours!
