Whether you vacation in the Hamptons or just want to feel like you do, setting the mood for a perfect summer soiree is all in the details. Good food and good friends, so what more could you need to start off a dinner party right? Great ambiance is one key element that makes all the difference! Read on…
Hamptons Vintage Style
Flowers, of course, are a no brainer. As Mark Addison suggests ” Arrange several bunches of hydrangeas in a classic whitewashed vase with wisps of bear grass for a chic Hamptons-style centerpiece.”Any color is fabulous and adds instant panache!
Mixed Floral Center Pieces
Instead of creating a large mixed floral centerpiece or two, find some mismatched mason jars or vases and create a dramatic look with a single type of bloom in each jar. Invest in a few great serving pieces. Vintage shops and flea markets are a great place to find one of a kind pieces filled with character.
Favors for Guests
Finally, guests always love to receive a parting gift. What could be better that having your own floral printed fan when the temps rise and a cold glass of lemonade isn’t quite doing the trick?
That should get you started and from there the sky is the outdoor décor limit. These great finds are from the ever whimsical BHLDN.
