Summer Entertaining At Home And Turntables

Summer Entertaining At Home

Weekends spent at home are far and few between during the summer months, and nobody’s complaining!

If you’re like us, you’ve got gals staying with you every weekend and having a place to sit and chat before you start your day is super important. We like to break out our vinyls, listen to some tunes ( both old and new ) while we plan out our trip to the beach or tubing adventures. There is something really special about removing a vinyl from the sleeve and placing it on a turn table, then pressing play. It’s so far from the technology we’re so accustom to using and I like that. I pretty much force our house guests play a vinyl while they’re here! And yes, you’re welcome over anytime to try out the turn table.




This little corner of our living room is a mix of new and vintage wares and truly is the perfect place to sip on coffee with gal pals. I think it’s important to source larger pieces that make you feel comfortable and ones you think you’ll hang on to for a while. For small things like this lamp, I tend to go budget friendly. Why? Because I know I’m going to want to change it up frequently! This lamp was once silver & black. A little spray paint and reupholstering and it’s looking brand new and on trend.



We’ve partnered with Havertys for this post.

Havertys asked us to share some of our thoughts on purchasing furniture for our home and I’m sure it’s no surprise that entertaining and parties are a huge factor in the purchases we make. Here are some of our tips!

Seating: Instead of a traditional coffee table, opt for ottomans that can double as seats when you need them. If you don’t need the extra seats a simple lucite tray will still hold your coffee table essentials; books, candles and remotes.

Beverages: Other than your kitchen counters source pieces that can serve as beverage stations in rooms other than your kitchen. A nice bar cart, butler tray or console table will be a great place to set up cocktails.

Accommodations: Look for alternative sleeping solutions. It’s always a good idea to have a little extra sleeping room for unexpected weekend guests. Think day beds, sofa beds and futons ( aesthetically these are much better than in year’s past ).
