beach party!

This weekend is supposed to be beautiful and I intend on spending some time at the beach in an effort to enjoy the moment.  Summer is all about longer days, spent outside and what better way to maximize a day at the beach, than by extending it with an oceanside al fresco dinner party?  I came across these images via H&M home and was instantly inspired by the look for a casual laid-back, beachside set-up with pillows and soft table linens.  Just add some steamers, lobster and a summer salad, pour a cocktail {see below} and enjoy as you watch the sunset.

2 | these white & gold hand painted anchor stemless glasses  by Alyssa Reuven are fabulous – I pinned them months ago and have been admiring them ever since.  they would compliment any seaside celebration.
3 | glass & jute lantern
4 | jute pillow via Pottery Barn {currently on sale}
5 | harbor house accent pillow cover via H&M Home {UK}
6 | metal beverage bucket via West Elm
7 | coral wine stopper

What would I drink at this beach party?  I thought you’d never ask!!  This elderflower champagne cocktail with cucumber and mint garnish would be a perfect way to kick off your beach dinner:

fill a tumbler with ice | fill three-quarters of the glass with dry champagne | add thinly sliced cucumber and fresh mint | top off with St-Germain.

cheers!!
