Nothing screams summer like the color yellow, and lemon everything. This summer, we're seeing plenty of adorable lemon prints and décor that would make the perfect accessories for your lemon-themed BBQ, pool day, or summer soiree. We decided to test the citrus waters for a dinner party last weekend. From decor to dessert, everything's coming up lemons!
To set the mood, a well set table is everything. That's why we embraced the lemon theme with lemon vine napkin rings, lemon print cocktail napkins, and of course, fresh lemons (pictures below). Playful decor paired with tart treats set the stage for our zesty dinner party. Upon arriving, our guests were greeted with refreshing spiked lemonade and a decadent cheese board with Meyer lemon marmalade.
For the main, we sautéed chicken breast with a creamy lemon garlic sauce, recipe here, accompanied by rosemary truffle potatoes and garlicky-green beans. To compliment the lemon notes throughout the meal, we offered La Crema Sonoma Coast Chardonnay and Veuve Clicquot champagne. For dessert we served a tangy and light lemon cream pie, recipe here. This refreshingly tart pie was the perfect end to a lovely lemon evening.
Whether your outfit or your tableware, don't forget to accessorize with this festive fruit. As the host of a party, or a guest, lemon accessories are a playful way to embrace summer in your home and wardrobe. Here are our favorite lemon must haves, from table to toes!
