Though this summer’s outdoor entertainment might look a little different, I feel like there is no more important time to make your guests and family feel special than now. After being in quarantine for so long, little thoughtful details and fun place settings go a long way. Even for a party of 2!
I am so excited to announce my long term partnership with Juliska. Juliska was founded under the inspiration to love and live well. With so much going on in the world, I love the foundation of their brand and it really shines through with every single piece. Honestly, each piece feels like its part of a small batch custom collection you might find at a unique European market.
I will be highlighting different table scapes, but since we are kicking off summer, I thought we would start with an outdoor dining lobster bake. For everything fish, my go-to always is Fjord, a fabulous fish monger right in the heart of New Canaan. However, they have several locations all over Connecticut. To say they are the best is an understatement. For parties, they even can prepare all the food at table side, instant entertainment!
Everything you see on the table, except the napkins and lobster crackers , is all Juliska, from the vases, to the placemats, and everything in-between. As a mom of young kids, one thing that was top priority was having dishes that would not break (for outdoor entertainment). All of the glasses, individual plates, and even some of the serving trays are all Melamine. I’ve tried so many melamine pieces and Juliska is hands down, the best. We use ours all the time, even when not outdoors. The Juliska melamine is dishwasher, (top shelf recommended), microwave, and freezer safe, and BPA free.

Now for the food! Fjord is the best when it comes to anything seafood. They make it super simple and all of their food is just as beautiful as it is delicious.
