Summer is upon us, and with it comes every excuse for impromptu hangs and last-minute fiestas. Curating a gathering on the fly requires the proper arsenal. With the right accessories on hand, from barware to outdoor table settings, you'll be ready to let the spontaneous vibes take over any given night of the week. We're running through the occasions at the top of our wish list. Here's everything you need to party down this weekend.
Be it a movie under the stars or a cheese-and-wine pairing in the park, outdoor excursions are all about the gear. Picnic baskets, portable seating, and fold-away dining accessories that stow easily in your tote are a must.
Throw some corn on the grill (there's a cast iron skillet for that), and invite the crew over for lawn games and beers. We love a maritime theme for barbecues, especially with the Fourth of July just around the corner. Stock up on your true-blue hues now, and you'll be outfitted in advance.
If you're putting together a more sophisticated summer soirée, opting for brightly colored dinnerware, hurricane lanterns, and rich, natural materiality will set the mood. We love the complementary shades of natural tan with deep azure tones.
Ladies' night calls for elevated essentials. Chill in style with luxe wine goblets and a split decanter (to accommodate everyone's diverse palette). Your best girls will appreciate the finer details. Spring for artful glassware and all the Kelly Wearstler.
