late summer entertaining // simple details.

with the end of summer coming up, i've been dreaming of late summer dinner parties that are super simple. when i saw this illustration, i was like, yes... this is exactly how i would envision one of my simple dinner parties. gals in cute dresses chatting over some wine. inspired by that i rounded up a few pieces that i would use to complete a simple little dinner with friends.

summer party ideas

inspired by this illustration. help guests find their seats with these. let them eat with these. serve them these. decorate with gorgeousness like this. treat guests to favors. set the scene with a simple bar like this.

sometimes it's nice to get fancy with a few simple items than focus on too many different areas, right? i'm starting to realize more and more that less really can be more (can i say more any... more? yes). i really love how each of the details above had so much thought put into them. how are you planning on entertaining as the summer comes to a close?
