SAY ‘BON VOYAGE’ TO SUMMER WITH AN OVERBOARD NAUTICAL PARTY

coco kelley bon voyage to summer party1

The sad truth about this summer is a) it went entirely too fast and b) I spent far too little of it on a boat. Which may explain why I felt the need to bid the sunshine goodbye with an over-the-top nautical party. It also may have had something to do with my obsession with bejeweled life-size […]

    I love the overboard (no pun intended)!! theme of this party x
    Those bejewelled lobsters are so cute and the nautical flags do make a great graphic on the invites!
    It looks like fun! I hope there were no men overboard!!

    I am old enough to remember “Overboard” and many of its predecessors!!! That was a greatly fun movie, and yes…I can totally imagine Goldie’s character dining in this fashion aboard her yacht! Heck…I can see ME dining aboard my imaginary yacht!!! :-)

    I really like the mix of colors and textures on this table, as well as the “bling” that abounds!!! My kind of table!!! That anchor is perfect, too, as a part of the centerpiece! The invitations are top notch, bar none!!! And the fanciful straws just take the cake. If you’re gonna do it, DO IT…right??!??!

    VERY cool! The ultimate in posh nautical!

A PATRIOT’S PARTY FOR THE 4TH OF JULY!

fourth-of-july-party-inspiration-coco-kelley

Between World Cup celebrations and our Independence Day on Friday I think it’s safe to say that we’re all feeling a little extra patriotic around here this week! Last year I was spending the 4th with some amazing new friends on the Jersey shore. While it’s going to be hard to top that one, I […]

    Lovely choices! I am going with a rustic 4th of july decor this year. I’m thinking burnt reds, hints of navy, and lots of crisp whites accompanies by wood and galvanized metal. The drink dispenser and plate you shared are perfect!

    You chose such cute items! I really need more red, white + blue decor for parties, too, but our apt just doesn’t have room right now.

RECIPE :: PAN-SEARED CALAMARI

C+B_Rooftop028

When brainstorming the perfect dish to go with our Mediterranean-inspired al fresco tabletop that we showed you last week, I knew immediately that I wanted to do something easy and reminiscent of my time in Sicily a few years back. Then it came to me – a family favorite! Pan-seared calamari. The flavors and preparation are […]

AL FRESCO IN THE CITY WITH CRATE & BARREL

coco kelley for crate and barrel dining al fresco in the city_16

For the first time in my life, I have a rooftop deck to enjoy sunny days on. For years, I haven’t even had a little patio or patch of grass to call my own, so you better believe I’m excited to spend hours enjoying my city views and barbecues and many many evenings of entertaining […]

    Oh my gosh what a beautiful summer dinner set up! I love the color pallet of turquoise and black, they are not two colors that I would initially think to pair together but it is working soo well here.
    Love all these Paola Navone designs, especially the great dishes. And the fish platter = perfection!

    This setup is pure perfection! Every city girls dreams of having ANY sort of outdoor space to call their own. I hope you enjoy every minute of the summer in your urban oasis and here’s hoping for a warm Fall!
