Summer Dinner Party |  by Wilton Photography |  www.smittenmagazine.com
As long summer evening begin to fade into fall, make sure you take advantage of the extra daylight with a summer dinner party.  Cari Wilton put together a charming evening with friends, great hostessing tips, and delicious food.
There’s no need to make a dinner party stressful or overly complicated. Focus on making your guests comfortable, and simplify your hostessing tasks so that you can join in the fun. Food can be buffet or family style and keep dessert simple and easy to serve.
 
When it comes to setting the table, if you don’t have all the pieces you need, don’t be afraid to make it or fake it. The pedestal used for the centerpiece is a pie plate glued to a candlestick and spray painted an antique brass color. The napkin rings are brass wire shaped into abstract rings with pliers. Have fun personalizing your table!
For the entrees, a quick Pinterest search found these seasonal flavors.
