Summer Soirée with Angeleno Mag
The friends, flowers + table setting details were easy to plan. But since I couldn’t solely serve grilled cheese and cocktails all night, I enlisted the help of Haute Chefs LA. They make an unbelievable everything — especially greek-inspired appetizer spreads.
Here are photos from the dinner [you can see the full story in Angeleno Mag this month, on newsstands]! Have fun throwing a little summertime soirée of your own this weekend. It doesn’t have to be fancy — it just needs to be fun and with the best people you know.
PS. Remember, I’ll be in Chicago this weekend. Tickets to Simply Stylist are still available!
Pink peonies will seriously brighten your whole life.
Macarons packaged in burlap = the tastiest gifts!
I added a few floating flowers to the pool for a pretty pop of color.
I always include a stem at each place setting. Simple, chic + inexpensive! Here, I used lavender (but I’ve also used rosemary, eucalyptus, and even cinnamon sticks in the wintertime).
Feeling oh-so-feminine in this Victoria Beckham dress. The table included yellow peonies + mini olive trees [for good luck]! It all felt light, bright + comfortable.
Cocktails are a party’s best friend. Sweet + Spicy: tequila, ruby red grapefruit, basil syrup, lime | Cool + Crisp: vodka, watermelon, mint, soda water.

The lovely Kelly Noonan [and now-fiancé of my pops]! Yay!
