Summertime Soirée

Photo by Samuel Lippke

I hope you’ve now fully recovered from the holiday weekend. If not, Friday is just two days away.

Here are a series of my favorite photos from a festive Malibu party the night before the Fourth of July. My family has made a habit of stretching out every holiday (we’re super fun). I hope these pics encourage you to plan that summer party of yours! Remember, celebrations should happen often. After all, life is always worth celebrating, holiday or not.

Details on how to replicate our décor and signature cocktails are below. I’ll post photos from the Fourth’s beachside celebrations soon.


Pick up decorative outdoor pillows from Target for as little as $15.

Place succulents and fresh flower arrangements on tables.

Create signature cocktails for each event— get creative!

Mia Margarita: tequila, passionfruit, lime & shichimi spice//Cucumber Martini: grapefruit vodka, fresh cucumber, lychee juice & squeezed lemon//Piña Malibu: pineapple vodka, fresh pineapple & lime

Pick up mini cones and fill them with your favorite ice cream to serve as a post-dinner treat.

Dress is Missoni (on sale). Find the look for less here.
