Prop Styling: Summer Entertaining

Styled by Will Taylor | Photography by James Balston
Here are two summer entertaining stories I recently styled - a Mediterranean-inspired tablescape for the adults and an ice cream party for the little ones. My inspirations behind each tablescape where of summertime memories of years gone by, from family holidays in sun-soaked Greece to cold, refreshing ice creams enjoyed after long bike rides. It was the memories from family vacations to Greece that imprinted on my inspirations most: aqua blue hues of the Mediterranean Sea; the comforting scent of cut flowers from our villa's terrace garden; white washed wooden surfaces and the ornate, mix and match textiles of taverna tabletops. What inspires you about summertime?
