With summer officially in swing, and entertaining season in plain sight, now’s the time that many shift your attention to home. Whether throwing a large gathering or hosting an intimate occasion for close friends, socializing poolside or dining al fresco, inspire your guests with an inviting space. Mix neutrals with eclectic touches, and consider a thoughtful parting gift to set your soiree apart from the rest. And no celebration, of course, is complete without drinks that keep on coming. All that, and still the most important thing to remember is to keep things light and fun––after all isn’t that what summer’s all about? Below shop female-founded homewares, cooking tools, cool refreshments, and more for a perennially perfect party.
