SUMMER DINNER PARTY

it has been a minute since we’ve hosted a party and it felt so good to celebrate the start of summer with friends in a beautiful setting with some amazing vendors. one of the best parts about hosting is seeing all of the different aspects come together. i never fully know what it’s going to look like because everything is sourced from different places but the end result was stunning and just how i wanted it to be.

the starting point for building the table design, and the party, was the linens by la tavola (we also used their velvet linens for our friendsgiving last year). i mixed the charles linen with pink check napkins and the combo had a fresh, summer, farmhouse feeling. (i’m obsessed with gingham lately) the plates, glasses and silverware were all by casa de perrin who we use often and totally trust. we hosted it at the light lab which is a great east side space that was totally transformed by three of my friends and has killer style and versatility. just enough color, high ceilings, cement floors, big plush rugs and a gorgeous kitchen!

SEE THE WHOLE POST AFTER THE JUMP…

my girl jenn sanchez killed it with a tablescape of ombre florals ranging from white to pink and peach. i love that she kept the arrangements feeling wild and not too structured.

the foooood….wow! this new catering company was very on point. we had haute chefs la prepare everything on site and it was exceptional. i have really high standards when it comes to food at events/parties and they delivered. everything was bright, fresh, colorful, nutritious and satisfying. homemade pasta, wild caught salmon and strawberry shortcake were some highlights.

    Do you happen to know where that flatware is from? I’ve been looking high and low for gold/copper flatware that isn’t too gaudy looking.
