Hi Friends, so thrilled that Country Living featured my tips for Summer Decorating with Homegoods! Talk about HAPPY! Thanks! Enjoy! xox Mindy

1. Add color to your dishes.

“I love adding a colored dinner plate to my set of white dishes!” says Mindy. “It doesn’t have to be much—you can freshen up your look by buying just a few new pieces to add to your current set. That little bit of color always surprises my family… and I know when they notice something, it must be a good idea!”

2. Treat yourself to trays.

“If you are going to be passing out hors d’oeuvres or drinks to your guests, treat yourself to some new colorful trays,” says Mindy. “After the party, you can use them in rooms around your home. You can also display beautiful glasses on them on the bar, or place a vase with flowers on a lovely metallic tray in your dining room. When the sun is out I love having trays on my garden tables filled with succulent plants.”

3. Bring the indoors out.

“I love using pillows, poufs and rugs as ways to make the outdoors feel homey,” says Mindy. “When hosting guests at a dinner party alfresco, I like to drape soft throws on the backs of the chairs—that way everyone can easily cuddle up if they get cold.”

4. Experiment with ombre.

“Put away your clear glasses and bring in a mixture of colorful containers in different sizes,” says Mindy. “My favorite trend this season is that nothing has to match. Another great way to use ombre is to have three glass vases in varying shades of the same color sitting beside a fireplace or on your window ledge—it looks amazing.”

5. Invest in a bar cart.

“Freshen up your bar by adding a bar cart to the area where your guests are gathering,” says Mindy. “The bar cart can be filled with alcoholic drinks for the partiers, or for an outdoor family event, try beautiful pitchers of lemonade or iced lavender hibiscus tea. Recently, I took my bar cart and filled it will fun desserts that the guests could try at their leisure.”

    Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa?
    My blog addresses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from
    each other. If you are interested feel free to shoot me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Superb blog by the way!
