In our Pining For Pinterest posts, we prepare our readers for the upcoming season with interior shots alongside decor and event details in a fresh, new color story and overall look. As California girls (born and raised) we absolutely love the sunshine! So, you can imagine, we are very excited that it is officially the sunniest time of year. Even the June gloom doesn’t seem to be showing up! It’s time to do what we love best … Dine and entertain outdoors! Please enjoy as we take you through our inspiration for two totally different Summer events in our own distinct styles. 

Tami’s Pins: What’s “pin”spiring me this season? The idea of having a Summer seafood soiree! I mean, who doesn’t love dining on crab legs, fresh oysters, and lobster tails galore!? Why not throw a party based solely on the type of food you’re serving? They do it all the time on the East Coast (I am told.). Get fancy, decorate to the nines, and get your clam bake on!

I’m loving this seating area as a place to take a break for those who want to get out of the sun.

Party guests are dining outdoors (not in) but can admire this dining room just the same from afar.

A perfectly manicured garden is dressed up even more with a gorgeous chandelier!

This photo is my new obsession and the whole reason for this inspiration. I want to have this party, partake in this feast … I want it all! 

Formal table seating done in not such a formal way …

… and table centerpieces and floral arrangements done just right!

Party guests are encouraged to wear their most fun Summer dresses and hats … Why not?


If I had these, I would never take them off! Even if it did mean sinking into the grass just a little.

Cheers to Summer!

Lauren’s Pins: What’s “pin”spiring me this season? A truly talented woman! Recently, the world lost an incredible designer. Someone who’s work was recognized almost immediately through her very distinct style. I decided to dedicate my Pining for Pinterest board this season to Kate Spade as I know we will all continue to keep her legacy alive. I see this board as the inspiration for a party launching a new designer and her fabulous product … Someone who’s looking to inspire others with their work as well. 

This living room is full of pattern in total Kate Spade style. 

An eclectic breakfast nook for this young lady to enjoy her morning coffee.

A little set up by the entry welcomes each and every guest …

… and a festive table with a fun way to give guests some words to live by. 


Every last touch is included.

Dressed to impress a la Kate Spade …


.. and the perfect pair of shoes finishes off her awesome outfit.


Kate’s signature!

No party is complete without the perfect cake. 

This season is already a busy one, and we are so excited to continue bringing the events “Side” of our business to the next level. We look forward to all that is coming up this Summer and hopefully using some of this inspiration in our own planning. We would love to work with you in creating the right look this season by tying in the inspiration of your event with the essence of your home decor. Contact us at for more information.
