Summer Sea Breeze Dinner Party

This party from the Entertainologist Lulu Powers has a versatile theme that can work for any celebration–birthdays, dinner parties, showers, anything! The original party was a summer dinner on Nantucket. Lulu used an ocean blue color as the base; it’s a great neutral that looks elegant and looks great with any pop of color. This is the perfect no-stress but beautiful dinner party plan for a fun summer night. From the bright flowers, to the shades of blue, this Party Plan can be a great base for every party you’ll host this summer!

3 Steps to the Perfect Party

1
Plan
Every party should start with a plan, so let’s get organized.

Set the Budget

Start with a budget of how much you want to spend. Knowing this upfront means less stress and more enjoyment for you and your guests.

Pick the Venue

This party is made for the outdoors, like a patio, deck, or backyard. Your space will dictate the activities and food you offer so try to do this several weeks before your party.

Send Invites

Draft a guest list and send custom paper invites a few weeks before your event. Getting invites out early allows you to better plan for things like how much food you might need.
