There’s just something about this time of year that puts a spring in our step (pun intended). The fresh flowers in bloom, the bright sunshine, the sense of possibility in the air. After freezing all winter long, we’re beyond ready to break out our summer wardrobe and plan a warm-weather gathering. But after two years of limited social activity, we almost forgot how to prep for a party.

That’s where we come in! Consider Us your undercover event planners. We came up with a list of six home entertaining essentials, from dinnerware to decor. All you need to add are some friends, and you’ll be ready for your summer soirée!
