Paperless Post - the creators of beautifully designed unique invitations and cards that make organizing your own event that little bit easier - asked if I'd be interested in compiling a post on my inspiration for summertime entertaining, from color schemes, what I'd wear, food, styling etc. How fun is that? I mean, just take a look at my Pinterest Summertime, Eats & Drinks and Outdoor Space boards to start with. How could I resist?
My dream entertaining space would be a sandy beach with a long table lined with flowers and candles. Cream, tan and white, with and a touch of gold, and lights strung overhead. Invitations would be gorgeously simply and have to include the softest bluey/grey with with flecks of gold.
A stylishly relaxed dress 'code' on a warm summer night. Shoes kicked off (why would you need heels on the beach?), sand between our toes, soft fabrics ….. I would absolutely be wearing a dress…. which one of these would be hard to decide …..

And a delicious spread of food…
