Aw, summer. You gorgeous thing you. There’s nothing like warm days and nights, filled with food and drink and people you love. We adore this time of year so much for so many things, especially the casual parties that seem to pop up throughout the next few months. In our on-going series with our friends at Crate and Barrel, this month we’re sharing one of our top summer party themes, ever.
Three cheers for the Taco Party! With thoughtful serving pieces like the Wilder Oval Platter, Feast Platter, Marin Blue Serving Bowl, and Tondo platter, presenting a beautiful spread is kind of a breeze.
A big jug filled with a festive drink is guaranteed to keep people chatting late into the evening. And an elegant glass like the Lulie stemless martini glass works perfectly for a watermelon cocktail too.
The Beck Tray has to be one of our new favorites. Those copper handles! Looks especially lovely when filled with tasty little morsels.
Gather your friends together for a spontaneous taco party and you’ll be set to entertain in summer style with your Crate and Barrel gift registry picks. The beauty of registering for a range of dishes and serving pieces is that you’re always ready for guests!
Ready for a quick recipe tip? Top vanilla ice cream with lime zest, coconut, and shaved chocolate for the easiest, summer treat. Serve it in a coconut half for bonus points. (How lovely are these indigo linen napkins, btw?)
You could so easily plan this party by next weekend! To see our picks for the perfect summer-friendly gift registry, pop over to Crate and Barrel’s blog. And don’t forget to check back for a recipe for a Mezcal Mai Tai tomorrow!
