Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a good weekend and got time to slow down and enjoy the incredible fathers and father figures in their lives. As promised last week, here are some of the summer entertaining essentials that I either use and love or that have been catching my eye lately. I decided to present two looks, because although I am partial to the chinoiserie chic look, the reality is (at least in my life) that it isn’t always practical. Maybe in perfect Instagram world where you don’t see behind the scenes, but not for real life. I mean, I LOVE my metal bamboo napkin rings but do we use them when friends with kids come over? No way. I’m pretty sure our toddlers would turn them into weapons before we could pour our first glass of wine. So, the first option includes pieces that are still elegant but slightly more casual and family friendly. I promise though, either approach will make your guests’ jaws drop and make you look like the hostess with the mostest. After all, that’s what we all want, right?
