Serve food that showcases the summers best! In season vegetables and fruits such as corn, watermelon, blueberries and strawberries makes sure that your food is perfectly ripe for the picking. Include refreshing cocktails to beat the heat and don’t forget about the little one’s! Filling an ice bucket with popsicles is a great idea for kids that can easily be replenished as it gets low. Finally, make sure that you are always opting for ease. Adorning your food with a stick makes for both easy accessibility and easy clean up. Remember, finger foods will make your summer entertaining schedule much more enjoyable to handle!

Décor:

Have fun with your décor! Although your party or event will most likely be outdoors, incorporate elements that will still make your party special such as an elegant tablecloth or brightly colored pillows. Decorating with items that serve a double purpose is also something to keep in mind. We love how Devon Rachel showcases above a sweet Hawaiian Soiree that uses fans for the table setting but that could easily help you cool off from the summer heat. Homedit.com also shows how you can use pretty blue mason jars filled with citronella to both ward off bugs while providing a stylish table accessory.

Extras:

A Step by Step Guide for Hanging Your Wallpaper

Discover the Beauty of Non-Woven Wallpaper

non woven wallpaper

Non-Woven wallpapers are made of a fibrous material, making both the hanging process as well as removal so much easier! They will dry-strip from the wall, usually leaving the wall smooth and abrasion free. Oftentimes vinyl free, this technically advanced substrate makes for a fabulous and environmentally friendly wallpaper option. That said, we wanted to provide you with a simple how to video to show you that hanging and removing your non-woven wallpaper is not a scary feat, rather quite the opposite!

Project Tools: Bucket of paste, paste brush/roller, utility knife, level, clean water & sponge, smoothing brush/smoother, tape measure, straight edge & pencil, step stool

removing wallpaper

Removing: From the top, simply peel a corner at the seam to remove your entire strip. Use a utility knife if you have trouble finding a corner to start from.

Prepping: Make sure walls are clean of all dust and debris as well as spackle and smooth out any holes or rough areas. With a level, create your first plumb line (the plumb line is the first line that you create to be sure that you hang your wallpaper straight).

wallpaper prep

Cutting: To cut your first strip, measure the height of the wall adding an additional 4″ for trimming at the top and bottom and then proceed by cutting your wallpaper with a sharp knife or blade.

Hanging: Using a brush or roller, paste the wall. Continue by sliding your wallpaper into position making sure to align with the plumb line. Don’t forget to leave an extra 2″ at the top and bottom.

Tips & Tricks: 

- Make sure to match the pattern at the seam

- Use a smoothing tool to smooth into place

- Remove excess paste with a damp sponge

- Trim excess wallpaper with a sharp knife or blade
