Lobstah Love for Summer Entertaining

Ah, Memorial Day, the unofficial start of summer. We love this holiday because it kicks off long summer days turning into long summer nights where we'll be spending as much time outdoors as possible. And as our homes have become our sanctuaries, particularly over the last few years, we've seen an increase in the desire to make these special places an oasis and invite others in. With that in mind, we're thinking of all the things to make outdoor entertaining a breeze... 

Set the table with fun yet sophisticated outdoor homewares that elevate the summer entertaining experience. And what's more summer than lobster? We love Golden Rabbit's collection of classic and colorful plates, serving platters, bowls, and even a lobster stockpot.

Go glass-free, especially poolside, without sacrificing style. Fortessa's outdoor drinking glasses share the same hobnail detailing of a Parisian flea-market find. French-chic in style, these acrylic glasses come in a variety of colors. We'll drink to that!

The sun sets, pesky creatures come out. Keep insects at bay with an effective and beautifully scented candle from Skeem Citronella. Citronella is a proven all-natural insect repellent made from the leaves and stems of the lemongrass plant, repelling biting insects by masking the smells they’re attracted to. The candles are pretty, too.

Keep things fresh and protected with Tag's artisan-made, hand woven seagrass food covers. These domes have a base that is made from woven seagrass and bamboo to remain sturdy when holding plates, bowls, and dishes. The top is retractable and made from sheer netting, keeping sneaky little bugs out.

Faux wood designs adds a natural look to your outdoor tabletop while being completely functional in that it is made of incredibly durable melamine. Melamine mimics the aesthetic of ceramics while being lighter-weight and shatterproof, perfect for evenings outdoors. We especially love the versatility of this dark faux wood design.

Don't forget one of the most crucial elements to your outdoor spaces, especially when entertaining — lighting. We have an extensive lighting collection both in-store and online to help you keep things as bright as you need to during glorious summer nights. Il Fanale is one of our favorite brands, and we love this cone-shaped outdoor pendant. The antiqued brass is perfect for outdoors.
