{Summer Entertaining} Got Jell-O?

Last Friday evening, I participated in Women Supporting Women, an informal showcase of local woman owned businesses, who support each other as well as less fortunate women in our community; a portion of the proceeds benefited NOVACO.  The event was successful!  I enjoyed talking about parties and celebrations, sharing 'posh in a pinch' tips for summer entertaining and learning how other women like to entertain.

Above is a photo of my display, including a raffle for handmade invitations and a custom event design (or game plan for producing the winner's party of choice).

Here are the 'posh in a pinch' ideas for summer entertaining:

Got gift wrap, tissue paper and scrapbook paper?  Then, you have a 'tablecloth', 'table runner' and 'placemat' for your tablescape or food buffet.  The design possibilities are endless - and affordable!

Lounge in comfort with beach towel "pillows". Roll towel and wrap with a lei.

Repurpose an old photo frame as a menu display.  Incorporate scrapbook paper and chipboard letters for stylish fun.

Garnish your margarita with a lime "marker"!  Carve your initial into the lime wedge.

*My Favorite!  Create a stylish centerpiece with white daisies submerged in Jell-O!  Inexpensive to make, and Jell-O comes in a wide variety of cheerful colors!  Let's Party!

These are my favorite 'posh' ideas for summer entertaining; what are yours?
