Summer is in full swing and perhaps you’ve already hosted a bunch of parties…but if you still have some to come; Thom Filicia, interior designer and TV star (whose new show “Design Star” launches in July on HGTV), has partnered with Green Mountain Coffee Roasters and Brew Over Ice K-Cup portion packs this summer to give you the coolest tips to flawlessly throw the perfect summer party!

Thom Filicia’s Coolest At-Home Summer Entertaining Tips!

» Bring the Indoors Outdoors! 
     • Add color, texture and pattern to your outdoor space and roll out some beautiful, colorful cotton rugs or place some big comfy floor pillows around for casual and comfortable seating.

» Great, functional Trays:
     • One of my favorite summer dining tips is to use the tray as a placemat so that you can easily carry food and drinks in and out.

» Iced Beverages!
     • Iced coffee is a staple for many people during the summer months.  Stand out with your very own specially blended iced tea or iced coffee!  With Brew Over Ice K-Cup portion packs for the Keurig Brewer brewing iced coffee and iced tea at home has never been easier.  Try my favorite, Celestial Seasoning’s Half and Half (Black Tea and Lemonade) or Green Mountain Coffee Nantucket Blend iced coffee.

     • This is a quick and refreshingly delicious way to let your guests know you care about what they want!  You can even use one of your trays to serve your delicious Brew Over Ice with a scoop of your favorite ice cream in a tall pint glass with a long spoon to mix it all together.  YUM!

» Creative Use of Candles
     • Use a multitude of votives and stylish hurricanes and lanterns to provide layers and atmosphere once the sun goes down.

» Great Music List
     • Nothing gets a party started like a great play-list!  Try if you’re feeling a bit lazy and want the internet to put together a “Swinging to the 60’s” or “Rock around the clock” playlist for your gathering.

» Easy Cloth Napkins
     • Rather than using run-of the-mill paper napkins, provide your guests with inexpensive and stylish bar towels that look casual and fun un-ironed in a simple napkin ring.

» Outdoor fireplace/fire pit
     • An outdoor fireplace can be a wonderful addition to any summer night.  They’re easy to find and can help extend your party outside from daytime to night – Plus, who doesn’t love a good marshmallow roast!
