I’m always down to host a party, but no season is better for easy, casual entertaining then summer. While I don’t have a great outdoor space of my own, a girl can dream so this is how I’d love to be spending some slow weekend days. 

  1. 8 Other Reasons earrings. Okay, yes, entertaining doesn’t really require jewelry. But a hostess has to look good, right? Statement earrings are my go-to with jeans and t-shirt or breezy blouse to look pulled-together with no effort. 
  2. Geese & Ganders paper plates. The retro vibes of these “peachy vibes” plates will definitely have everyone feeling good and will keep my clean-up easy, too. 
  3. Hampton Forge flatware. Using real flatware is so much nicer than plastic, though, and this blue set is affordable enough to buy for a crowd. 
  4. Serena & Lily tray. Imagine carrying this full of glasses of lemonade (or more likely, aperol spritz!) 
  5. Kayu clutch. Since I don’t have an entertaining space of my own, this clutch is perfect for toting to other’s parties or just to meet friends for happy drinks on a patio somewhere. 
  6. Ojai Wild perfume. “Coniferous, sparkling, and joyful” sounds likes the ideal summer perfume. And the packaging is definitely display worthy as well. 
  7. CB2 lounge chair. Pretty sure any backyard will feel like a tropical resort if your guests are seated in a gold lounge chair.
