6 Tips for Fun Summer Parties By Kristi Veliaj
Hi sweet birds,
Do you all agree that there is nothing better than sharing a meal with our loved ones? And what’s even better is preparing it!
Summer feels like the right season to enjoy dinner and drinks in the open-air and soak in the sweetness of what Italians call “dolce far niente”. Let’s review together the essentials to organize the “perfect summer dinner”, but first it is necessary to have clear idea of the mood for the night.
WE are obsessed with summer tablescapes. Below are 6 tips to entertain your guests and knock their pants off:
“Comfort” is the key-word! Everyone will be excited to sit on fluffy pillows, and experience an Oriental seating.
Candles and lanterns everywhere:
Arabian nights are here! The room will be brightened-up by scented candles and lanterns of all-sizes, that will enchant your guests distracting them from a dish that is too salty!!
Old newspapers as the Table-clothe?:
Reusing materials can be smart and chic. Your daily newspaper never looked so yummy!!
Flowers and Cacti are a great combo:
Cacti can be even chicer than flowers but mix them up for the best result!
Tasty but easy appetizers:
Bruschettas and fresh vegetable-bites are fast to prepare and the oil will (hopefully) not stain.
Iced Teas can work too:
Too much of that ice-cold rosé gives you an headache? Ice-tea is tasty and kids can join in for the party!
