Summer, here we come!

Summertime makes me happy. It's the only time of year where adults seem to have as many carefree moments as the kids do. At our house, we spend our weekends soaking in the rays, splashing in the pool and of course partying with our friends. The days are long which means extra fun for everyone. Naturally, I love to host but I totally understand how throwing a party can be overwhelming. When it comes to impressive tableware, we've got you covered with our limited edition Summer Party in a Box, which launches TODAY!Summer is all about bright colors so we loved mixing orange chevron paper plates with yellow/white rugby striped napkins & cups. For summer parties, keep the menu simple and easy. Try to serve food items that are OK sitting out in the hot sun - for example, a cheese plate is one of my favorite things to nibble on but will spoil easily if left out in the scorching summer sun. No backyard barbecue is complete without drinks, and our colorful pitcher is the perfect way to serve. Flowers don't need to be fussy...we snipped a few blooms from my yard and popped them into an extra paper cup and voila! The perfect centerpiece. These colorful ice cream cups are the perfect addition to any backyard party. We love using them for homemade ice cream, snow cones, or even fresh fruit. For a pre-BBQ snack we even filled some with fresh veggies and dips for a healthy treat the whole family will enjoy. Happy Summering Everyone !!
