At Roberto Coin, we enjoy a summer soirée out on the town as much as one in our own home. Entertaining at home is an art form and a true testament to creativity, hospitality and etiquette. In this day and age, we draw inspiration from various cultures, cuisines and even fashions (much like the beautiful designs of Roberto Coin himself) to create a unique and inviting ambience.
Below, we reveal essential entertaining tips sure to create an unforgettable evening with close friends.
The Space. Create a space that is impressive enough for your guests to notice, but also a place where they feel comfortable, indulgent and engaged. Tea light candles dispersed throughout the room lend a warm, intimate feeling to your home. Tea light candles dispersed throughout the room lend a warm, intimate feeling to your home.
The Decor. Use the colors, landscapes and carefree air of summer to inspire your evening’s setting. This is the perfect time to use your colorful sets of china and whimsical crystal stemware.
The Table. A table with a pop of color or a hint of drama from a vibrant floral centerpiece is elegant and effortless. Complete this look with playful linens and vivid florals.
The Menu. During the summer, keep it light and airy. A delicate seafood dish paired with exotic greens and unexpected flavors will keep your guests satisfied and not too full.
The Tunes. An artful balance of mellow jazz (#throwbackthursday anyone?) with hip acoustics keeps the evening upbeat, but relaxed. A playlist featuring Bebel Gilberto and Amy Winehouse is a great start.
The most important part of hosting a memorable evening is to enjoy it all. You have put much hard work into creating the perfect summer occasion, so don’t forget to revel in your accomplishments and partake. Buon appetito!
