Summer is finally here but with our hectic summer schedules, sometimes it is easy to forget about what you need to make sure you are prepared for those weekend beach trips, the spontaneous picnics, and that neighborhood block party. We don’t want you scrambling to find those perfect summer essentials so here are our top 5 favorite must-haves for Summer 2018:
An Ice Bucket
Lukewarm cocktails? Never heard of them. Bland BYOB? Absolutely not. Use this Lily Pulitzer Ice bucket to add a pop of color to your next happy hour! With its double-walled insulation, the summer heat will never get a chance to warm up those drinks. We will be using this essential item poolside, beachside and or at any opportunity to feel some of that Lily sunshine!
We love outside dining – especially when it is fresh summer flavors. But sometimes packing it all up to enjoy that sunset or tote to a Long’s Park summer concert can be too much of a hassle. With our wide variety of different picnic bag sets, all of your packing struggles will become a breeze. Easy containers and all-in-one plates and utensils will get you on the road in a matter of minutes.

Never worry about fragile tableware again. Le Cadeaux dinner plates are perfectly suited for both indoor and poolside use with their durable melamine construction. And did we mention they are as light as a feather? We cannot get enough of these plates and once you get your hands on them, you won’t either. Pick up a set or order here to add sophistication and beauty to that next summer dinner.
Thank You Cards
Summer = celebrations galore! Whether it’s the summer kickoff BBQ, a wedding celebration, or a graduation send-off, we believe it is important to have the essentials on-hand to cut down on stressful last-minute party errands. One thing you don’t want to forget? Invitations to kick off your get-together and notes to thank a host/hostess, or gift-giver, for their thoughtful gesture. We have an array of thank you cards and personalized stationery that make note writing fun. Pick up a set now in preparation for your next event!

A Beer Caddy
No one likes a warm beer, but combine summer heat and humidity, and you may be forced to drink one (gah!). With our favorite Beer Caddy, all your worries drift away… Holding up to six drinks and designed with insulated cooling construction, you’ll have access to that ice cold beer wherever your summer adventures may take you. We love using this fun carrier laying out on the sand at the beach, when heading to a friend’s for an informal grill-night, or lounging on the grass at an outdoor concert. These also make the perfect last minute gift for the beer lover! 😉
