A Seaside Themed Summer Party

As the mercury rises and the temperatures too, why not venture outside to create a little seaside in your backyard? It's a great time of year to invite your friends over and party all afternoon long under the heat of the summer sun. Even if you're not by the seaside you can recreate the look and feel of a nautical escape with the right buys. Start by creating a palette of red and blue hues as these colours alone are a nod to all things nautical. Next, mix in some anchor motifs and fish-shaped plates to really create that seaside feel. Pull the look together with strong pattern, perhaps in an outdoor rug laden with pillows or even a stripe parasol. Then all that's left to do is invite over your best friends and party 'till sundown! Which of these nautical picks do you like best?

  12. That top photo has me daydreaming about a summer holiday somewhere by the sea. Is that awesome umbrella really available in IKEA?!! Love it.

    PS. I'm slowly catching up on blogs after my absence and busy days. London was simply wonderful and I'm hoping to return in August/September after the Olympic madness.
