How to: Host a Summer Soiree

Since starting my "big girl job" I've started love entertaining and having people over. Whether it's Italian dinner & movie night or a Mexican fiesta, it's just fun to get together and be social. Now that the weather is beyond gorgeous I want to take advantage and dine alfresco at a summer soiree!

I've been finding all kinds of dinner party inspiration via pintrest & wanted to share my inspiration!

I've created my list for throwing the perfect party. I love the idea of mixing traditional gingham, mason jars & fresh squeezed lemonade with trendy ikat & custom etsy invites. It doesn't have to be fancy, but the special touches add a little something extra!

Oh this post makes me wish I had a back yard!! I love hosting any kind of event, but a summer outdoor dinner party would be wonderful. My roommate and I are hosting a belated apartment warming party this summer, but it will unfortunately be indoors. Mason jars will be incorporated though!

I love open air parties or gathering. Fresh air makes you feel like just awesome. Mostly BBQ parties I have arranged in my lawn are really good.

Looks great! I just saw on Martha Stewart a set of home making lemonade recipes including some vodka infused ones that looked delicious! You should go check them out!
