valley & co entertaining :: summer harvest party

The Dog Days of Summer are here, and the markets (and our garden) are brimming with the very best produce and summer bounty. That means it's prime time and the best reason to throw a backyard harvest party!

To create an effortless garden party fitting of mid-summer vibes, just add:

A fun patterned linen - this will anchor your table and add such an immediate visual ambiance

Edible place settings and centerpieces - filling baskets or bowls full of berries, cheeses, veggies, and crackers not only adds a unique feeling, but guests will love sitting down and nibbling on the centerpiece!

Seed packets - use beautiful seed packets (we love Territorial Seed Company) for place settings by simply penning guest names on the top. They'll serve dual purpose as a take-home favor!

Serve up Valley & Co.'s Summer Punch tableside -- add 16 oz. of strawberry lemonade to 8 oz. pineapple juice in a tall pitcher. Muddle 1/2 Cup of raspberries and 1/2 Cup of strawberries in the bottom of the pitcher. Top with club soda and garnish with orange slices and fresh berries. Optional: swap the club soda for prosecco!

Long live summer! What's your favorite way to entertain in August?
