Betta Living's interior design team loves a summer party - it's a great excuse to style the kitchen differently to a normal dinner party.
Oh and what's better than ice-cold fizz and antipasti lining our kitchen tables, we just can’t get enough of summer dining. Here's our interior design team's top three interior themes for a 2014 summer party...even if it's raining outside!
Dressing kitchens with bright accessories will create the perfect vibe for a summer party. Get the look with bright plastic tableware such as these raspberry pink pitchers, glasses and bowls.
Vibrant decorative bright paper lanterns are a really cheap way to partify a kitchen (http://ebay.eu/1Bb43w2) or add a quirky table piece such as this Turquoise Buddah Head from Dobbies (http://bit.ly/1mFllaP).
A touch of floral décor will give any party in the kitchen a fresh summer look.
Throw in a few floral cushions, such as these gorgeous Bloom Delphiniums Cushions also from Dobbies (http://bit.ly/1rlVrMm) and line kitchen walls with pretty floral bunting for a vintage summer party look and feel (http://bit.ly/1sMBjDU).
Seaside candy-stripes sail us straight into summer and are the perfect decorative touch for a summer party. Get the look with our gorgeous Colour Bone Ice Bucket, available from Betta Living's e-store (http://bit.ly/XeN9x3).
Tables look great when dressed with a vibrant, statement runner. We love this Corsica Table Runner (http://bit.ly/XeNrnV).
