Summer outdoor entertaining with West Elm

A little outdoor entertaining with West Elm

All you need is a portable table think trestle legs and a table top

decorated with some foraged nature finds

think about a signature cocktail

an easy menu (ideally plant based)

set the table with some colourful basics and some metallic cutlery for some everyday luxe

when creating a table setting I always think about creating layers and adding height

light it up

Take a look at this fun and super easy DIY I created at home.

Using LIFX smart lights I have created an awesome feature on my console ( a great place for a display)

Attaching the LIFX Beam LED kit to the frame around the print ( super easy as the all connect together and attached with removable strips) really sets the (any)mode, the system is operated by their app on your phone and the colours are endless what a lite idea!

indoor trees

I love indoor plants at home and in all of my other projects, Its a simple way of adding life to any space, but I have spotted a new trend taking this idea to the next level. Interiors are not only about statement furniture pieces but statement indoor trees Go green indoors in a big way and create your own forest! and add a tree to your space.
