Isn’t summer the perfect time to gather with friends?! The kids can run through sprinklers outside and the grill gets fired up as laughter and stories are shared. Preparing to host friends and family can be stressful, yet the summer season offers so many fun inspirations for party-ready home decor! The Carolina Creekhouse easy-to-clean, no-fuss FloorFlats and TableFlats offer fun ways to style your space without the worry. We’ve pulled together four style + treat pairings to help you celebrate the joys of summer all season long. 

Summer Style: Casual Classic

When we think of casual classic summer style, we immediately think of the Carolina Coast.  This aesthetic is truly a timeless one, elements of which can easily blend in with anyone’s everyday style - no sand required!  Our Pawley FloorFlats and Pawley TableFlats - named for one our favorite places, Pawley’s Island- carry that beautiful Jute style without the mess or fear of moisture.

Summer Style: Tropical Oasis

Plant-lovers and island-dreamers rejoice! Summer is the perfect time to go all in on palm, monstera, and all the gorgeous warm-weather greenery.  No green thumb? No problem! Our Lanai FloorFlats and Lanai Placemats help you create a tropical oasis in your space- available in two color styles: green and blue!

Need an island-inspired crowd-pleaser?  This Hawaiian Luau Rice has you covered!

Summer Style: Traditions of the Beach

Thoughts of sandy toes, lapping waves, and the joy of discovering even the smallest shining shell bring a smile to anyone. Our Rosemary FloorFlats and Rosemary Placemats were designed with time-honored beach traditions in mind and add a touch of ocean beauty to your home. The two tone color palette (in blue or tan) is a great addition to many decor styles!

We can’t imagine a better party pairing for Rosemary than a plate of Sand Dollar Cinnamon Sugar Cookies

Summer Style: Retro Summer

Looking to bring retro summer vibes to your home?  Our Malibu beach inspired designs carry the lighthearted fun of surfing and sunshine.  The Malibu FloorFlats are a great addition in front of your sink or on your covered patio, while the Malibu Placemats are perfect for patio entertaining!

Retro style deserves a retro-inspired drink!  Strawberry Piña Coladas (with or without the alcohol) are beautiful, refreshing, and so very delicious. 

Finishing Touches for Summer Styling

Once you have your exciting pop of summer decor on your floors and tables and the treats are ready to be made, a couple of small tweaks that finish it all off for embracing the summer vibes in your home. Adding seasonal flowers or greenery bring summer decor to life- you can go artificial but the live, fresh versions are a great deal when they’re in-season!  Light candles scented to match the mood you want to set- we love soy candles that bring beach scents indoors.
