Unique summer table setting inspiration for memorable entertaining

“Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery”  –
Charles Caleb Colton

Every great party starts with some inspiration and I’ve gathered a few of my recent favorites. Put away your dishes (seriously!), invite some friends over, and throw a party they’ll remember by putting your lunch…in a box.


This concept will work well for a bas mitzvah, ladies’ brunch or luncheon, or an upsherin. The box concept also makes it easier to set up the lunch outdoors while the weather is still nice (or bring the outdoors in!).

Top a kraft box with napkin and cutlery tied in butcher twine. Line the inside of your box with www.flomaxbuyonline.com tissue paper and add your lunch. When serving salad, make sure to serve the dressing on the side. Photo by 100layercakelet

There’s few things as fun as opening up a gift box…and that includes when inside the gift box is lunch! Printed gift boxes especially contribute to the ambiance and decor. Photo by Amy Atlas

Add a personal touch to your kraft box lunch with printed messages, both on the outside and the inside. Love how this box also includes dessert. Photo by Wedding Chicks

Complete the “kraft” look by wrapping your flowers in kraft paper (notice the vase is also wrapped in the flowers standing on the chair). Photo by flowerchild
