Summer is in full swing and while it may look different this year than in year’s past, we’re still enjoying small gatherings with friends and family. From summer holidays to casual backyard get-togethers, we’ve gathered up some of our favorite posts on Pinterest that inspire elegance and creativity when it comes to summer coastal entertaining.
Let’s take a look at what we’ve found!
Summer Coastal Entertaining – Pinterest Style
A Bohemian Backyard Dinner Party by Camille Styles
Every single detail of this elegant backyard gathering is well-thought out and beautifully designed. From the invitations to stunning floral arrangements. The intimacy of sitting on the ground “bohemian style” offers the opportunity to for inspiring conversation. We love the fluffy pillows and thoughtful place settings.
Summer Citrus Inspired Tablescape by One Stylish Party
The color of citrus is the color of summer. Those happy pops of bright yellows, oranges and greens will liven up any outdoor dinner party! We love this concept from One Stylish Party not only for the festivity of it, but all the simplicity. This tablescape is simple to replicate and can be an easy look to pull together for a last minute get together.
Mix & Match Cocktail Bar by Sugar and Charm
It should be no surprise that we love a good bar set up. Our bar carts and sand-etched rocks glasses are some of our favorite pieces for entertaining. Setting up a DIY bar station is a great way to kick off a party, guests will enjoy getting to know one another while crafting a beverage, and you use your design creativity to make it a featured element of your gathering. All you need are a few key elements to give guests just enough variety to whip up their drinks of choice.
S’mores Bar by Tonya Staab
Speaking of bars, how about this cute idea by Tonya Staab? You could of course create any sort of dessert bar, but there’s something about a s’mores set up that screams “summer”. The best part? You don’t need a campfire to enjoy it!
Independence Day Beach Party by Style Me Pretty
This idyllic scene set by Style Me Pretty may look intimidating to recreate, but it’s actually quite simple. The table is a repurposed wood pallet and the cushions are from old club chairs the stylist already had on hand. Add in a few comfy pillows and beachy throw blankets and your picnic on the beach is most of the way there. We’d recommend adding an ice bucket, maybe our crab flatware caddy and some oversized totes to transport it all.
From cozy beach barbecues to vibrant backyard gatherings, we love these creative ideas found on Pinterest.
