    Outdoor entertaining tips

    When planning an outdoor event, choose an underlying theme and let it guide your decor, activity, food and beverage choices (maybe even your attire!). It will help you focus when making decisions on party elements. Hot themes for summer 2012 include Palm Springs in the 1960s (play croquet, decorate with a Pucci-inspired color palette, serve retro-inspired drinks in kitschy glassware). A Great Gatsby-inspired garden party (think about making this one a costume party!) is also hot for summer.

    Are you on Instagram yet? I love this app… check it out you can post pictures, search for inspiration but most importantly you also get a chance to meet some of the coolest people. Take for example Leila Pejman, she is a sassy and stylish west-coast based producer and storyteller (her work encompasses communications, content creation, and social media, topped off with a passion towards emerging technologies.). I met Leila through instagram and well, instantly LOVED her style and taste so I thought who better than Leila to repost of the recent IDS West show…. Enjoy!
