We’re officially in summer now, with the solstice just this past week, and it’s the perfect time to host a seasonal party. This is an occasion to plan a robust menu full of the fresh fruits of the season—a charcuterie teeming with meats and cheeses along with figs and olives. Citrus-flecked ceviche, platters of luscious salmon and bowls of gazpacho. And waiting in the wings? A juicy dessert, something along the lines of cherry pie or icy cold sorbet. With a menu such as this, you’re going to need an equally inspired centerpiece. The flowers should be bright and festive and full of good humor, a sense of lightness and sweetness. Stadium Flowers has just the thing.
We love our Summer Memories for a sophisticated dinner party. It conveys summer’s relaxed elegance, with orchids, ferns, hydrangea and roses coming together in an unexpectedly beautiful display. And with the addition of stargazer lily we have that swoon-worthy scent. The rustic modern box they all spill from is a nice counterpoint to the grace of the florals.
As you’re putting together your summer dinner party plan, don’t forget to pair with wine—and flowers.
