Happy Friday! With more than warm weather here in DC this week, I’m dreaming of a party on our lawn. Here’s a few finds that I’d love to use when hosting a get-together this summer.
West Elm’s melamine animal plates are so bright and fun. I can see a bright mixed salad popping on them. This vintage style string of lights from Restoration Hardware would make our backyard look like a fairytale and keep the party going long after dusk. I’ve fallen in love with Anorak’s rolling hills printed picnic blanket. I’m so glad that I found Artsy Modern stocks them in the USA! We could use it as a place to gather in the lawn or a place for children to relax. It’s waterproof backing will be perfect for Wolf Trap performances this summer on the lawn. I love my Zoku popsicle maker, but I’d love to add the Zoku ice cream bowl to my collection. A few of these at a party would make mixing your own ice cream a fun dessert activity.
As the party turns to evening, why not use these fun stacking Tiki glasses from CB2 for adult beverages? What better way to make those cocktails at your own lawn party or on a picnic adventure than from the mason jar shaker & tote cocktail kit. Tasty finger food is a must for an outdoor party. Maybe I have Miami on my mind but I’d love to serve a platter of these stone crab claws from Joe’s Stone Crab shipped directly to my door. What’s a party without a little fire? The end of an evening outside is the perfect time to relax by a fire pit. This starry night fire dome would make great a s’mores and start great conversations.
