A Chic Chinoiserie Twist to Your Summer Event

With warmer weather on the horizon here in San Antonio, Texas, there’s nothing I love more than entertaining friends in my backyard during Springtime. 

The lush greenery, elegant tablescapes — and let’s not forget the fashion — are all quintessential elements in planning the perfect garden party!

Which is why I wanted to share some of my favorite Garden Party tips with you today. Follow these, and your event will surely be a major success!


Blue and white chinoiserie tablescape, Chinoiserie & Pearl Hoop Earrings in Blue & WhiteTip #1: Start with a chic, seasonal color palette that plays off your surroundings.

I’m loving a blue moment right now! The classic blue and white Chinoiserie pattern pops against the natural backdrop of an outdoor setup.

Incorporating this timeless design with a serving platter, vases for your floral arrangements, and a variety of textiles can really make a striking display!  



Tip #2: Always add an element of greenery!

As they say, Spring has sprung! … And brought with it beautiful green scapes in the process, that can create the perfect backdrop for an enjoyable afternoon or evening outdoors.

Adding in a few thoughtfully placed floral arrangements to your tablescape can bring warmth and elegance to your event. While it may be a small detail in the grand scheme of hosting the perfect Garden Party, it’s one your guests will surely appreciate. Some of my personal favorites to use are hydrangeas, peonies, roses, and tulips.

Champagne is an easy staple for any outdoor event. Delicate flutes and glamorous bottles, add another layer and variety to your table.

Not to mention its crisp, refreshing taste on those warm Spring & Summer days!

Though, my Texas roots do leave me partial to sipping Tequila, served slightly chilled, regardless of the season!

Tip #4: Pick your perfect outfit and most importantly… accessorize!

If you’re going for a more understated look, you can never go wrong with a crisp white button-down shirt paired with a statement earring.

Our Paloma Chinoiserie & Ball Bead Teardrop Earrings in Blue & White makes the perfect subtle statement! Or for a more elevated event, I’m currently loving pastels and light-colored sundresses. I’m also a huge fan of layering necklaces for an on-trend and effortless look. You can’t go wrong with these signature chains.

But when in doubt, just add bracelets!

Stack on two, three…. or even 7! There’s no wrong number when it comes to creating the perfect arm party to complete your ensemble.

Our Katherine Chinoiserie & Ball Bead Bracelet Set in Blue & White makes stacking easy! 

I hope you’re just as inspired as I am, to host your next garden party, brunch, or backyard get-together with great friends! Cheers to looking fabulous and pulling off the perfect event of the season!
