Summer Entertaining Essentials For The 4th & Beyond

(Via Inslee Designs)

July is filled with a busy schedule of picnics, barbecues and weekends away. Are you prepared for your Summer parties? Time to have festive thoughts for the 4th and beyond. I went on a search for some entertaining essentials that I know you are going to love. Get ready, get set, get entertaining!

HERE: 13 Fab Finds

MyDrap Disposable Linens
My friend Mollie and I discovered these nifty napkins several years ago. They are the perfect compromise between paper and linen. Made of 100% cotton and perforated on a roll, you simply tear off as needed. They are meant to be used once and tossed....or can be washed and used a few times.  At these sale prices, I say toss them!

Naturally Cooling Barware
Don't you just hate it when your ice cubes melt? It always seems like such a waste to me. Enter Magisso and Simon Stevens' cool ceramic collection of servers. Love the minimalist look for the modern host or hostess. The perfect way to serve an chill cocktail party. Cheers!

 Cheese Block With Knife & Spreader
I stumbled upon this fabulous cheese presentation at Fashionable Hostess. The base for this spectacular but simple appetizer, is Nambe's beautiful wooden server. 

Chinoiserie Monogram Lucite Tray by Boatman Geller 
These lovely lucite trays allow you to "live your style" all year long. With several patterns to choose from, I found the chinoiserie print so very chic.  After Summer is over, bring it inside and give it a special spot on your vanity for perfume and pretty little things.

Wooden Ice Cream Spoons
Guaranteed to help with brain freeze! These swoon worthy spoons are perfect for sundae bars, and the smaller spoons work well with smaller cups of ice cream. 40 spoons in total. Just enough for your next ice cream social.

Beverage Dispensers
Patio perfect! Find every size and type at The Classic Hostess. Use them for water, lemonade or a signature cocktail at your next party. Pictured above is the "Cairo." Find your fave style.
