Summer is finally here and it’s time to have a relaxing beach themed event. But, what should be chill can quickly become stressful when you don’t know what look you’re going to go for. So it’s only natural if you need a little style guidance for your next seaside-inspired event. Here are three stylish looks for your costal-themed get-together this summer.

1. Coastal Elegance
Coastal style is known for its casual chic nature, so keep that overall aesthetic in mind when pulling your design together. A beachy event doesn’t have to be over-the-top or even have obvious beach motifs. What really counts is the spirit of the coast: casual feel, cool and breezy colors, worn finishes, and an overall serene vibe.
How to get this look: Start with table linen that has a naturally chic pattern, like our Sand Eleuthera or Martinique. Watercolor plates add another layer of coastal influence. Turkish blankets will give the look a beachy casual vibe that guests will appreciate. This clownfish cheese board is an especially whimsical, ocean-themed display for appetizers.
2. Graphic Black & White
Luxurious and rich is the feeling we were going for when we put this look together. The juxtaposition of bold black and white patterns next to natural elements feels simple yet ultra-chic.
How to get this look: Graphic black and white tropical themed table linen paired with hand beaded placemats and modern black dipped gold flatware. Laying on another graphic black and white printed tray makes this look feel complexly stylish. Finish off the look with inky menu cards.
3. Tropical Beach House Look
The spirit of the sea is a natural one, so it makes sense that you’ll find plenty of natural elements, such as bamboo and rattan in this beach-inspired look. This airy look is all about the coastal living and colors of the tropical foliage. Corals, sandy nudes, aloe green, and gold make this look perfect for a summer soiree. With Living Coral, the Pantone Color of the Year, incorporating it into your design keeps it on trend.
How to get this look: Coral table linen is a bright and tropical element to start this look with. Next, you’ll want to pick napkin or china set with a colorful edge, this is a playful way to incorporate the look in all of your tablescape elements without being too over the top. Gold and rattan serving pieces that keep the tropical look going are a great way to set this look apart.
