We’ve launched into the new year and for anyone planning a celebration in these early months I’ve put together a collection of Summer entertaining essentials
For more summer inspiration – check out my Flamingo themed blog post for some ideas, my Ice Cream themed post here , my Mermaid theme blog post, or my blog post on the Oh It’s Perfect blog for ideas for a garden party
Inspiration for a few summery themes:
Lanterns are great for outdoor decorations – easy to hang, light and they look good no matter where the wind blows them:
Can’t beat some ice-cream cone decorations for a summer feel!:
Speaking of ice-cream, even if you’re not doing an ‘ice-cream themed’ party, ice-cream is a must have when entertaining in summer with kids! So here are some fun finds to use when serving up your ice-cream!:
Love these ice-cream cone stands!:
I just had to share this fabulous ice-cream parlour stand for hire in Sydney for a perfect ice-cream serving area at any summer themed party:
When entertaining with kids disposable partyware is a must have! This confetti design fits into any bright and summery party:
Also love these bright options:
If you’re doing a tropical feel, I love these tableware ranges:
These gorgeous pastel chevron napkins are perfect for summer entertaining:
Summer entertaining is a great time to use drink dispensers.
Love the colour pop on this one (also available in pink!):
Fantastic 2 part dispenser where you can display some tropical fruits at the bottom:

Also loving the bright’s in this bamboo collection:
Perfect way to keep the flies away but your table still looking pretty – food covers in gorgeous summer colours:
So there you have it – a summer entertaining round up! Hope your next summer soiree is full of fun!
If you go down to the woods today…..this classic rhyme is the perfect inspiration for a child’s birthday party. So cute for a 1st birthday theme or for a toddler who loves all their teddies! It’s also a perfect theme for a baby shower.
I’ve based the choices in this blog post mainly around browns/naturals, yellows, reds and greens and incorporating some gingham to give it a picnic feel.
