It Finally Feels like Summer!

With this warm weather finally moving into Charleston, all I can think about is throwing a summer cocktail party! And it would be so easy to throw together a small cocktail party in the backyard using the Pantone Color of the Year, Emerald.


All you need is...


1. Cold bite-size appetizers in this heat, like these cute Cucumber & Feta Boats. Recipe here.


2. The perfect outfit! Try a long floor-length number like this one from Milly NYC.


3. Interesting little details, such as chevron straws for your drinks.


4. A signature cocktail. Try a Blue Lagoon, made by mixing and shaking vodka, pineapple juice, and blue Curacao.


5. Easy summer flower centerpieces. Hydrangeas are simple and seasonal.
