Nautical Nights: A Late Summer Soiree!

Hello to all of Julie's sweet readers! I'm Keely from luxe+lillies and am so flattered that Julie asked me to be here today. August is upon us, and if you're like me, that means you will be scrambling to put together a few last minute events to relish the rest of the warm, lingering summer nights with friends and family. Inspired by the lake life we love so much here in the midwest - here's a little late summer soiree that will have you covered from the invitations to your outfit and right onto the table...




These invitations are easy to customize and come in your choice of inks/envelopes, keep it cute and classy with this pretty red dress, striped wedges and bag. Dress up your outfit with these glammed up pearls, and drape that sweater over your shoulders to keep warm when the sun goes down.

Dress your table with blue and white seersucker fabric from your local fabric store and throw in these fun and trendy napkins, keep the dinnerware light and bright so you the colors on your table really pop! I like to mix and match patterns as well as metallics, this silverware is sure to add interest to your tablescape. Using themed place cards is a great way to mix up the group and keep it all cohesive. I like to use vessels that aren't fussy to hold flowers, these galvanized buckets are reminiscent of an east coast lobster-bake and are easy to throw some free form arrangements into these are lily of the valley.  cups + straws
