This is the season for soirées!
In Lexington, they begin in Spring and don't slow down till the end of summer. It's during this time when we find ourselves running & jumping at Keeneland, Rolex, the Triple Crown, High Hope Steeplechase & on the Polo fields as well!
Also on the calendar are dinner parties & birthday parties, weddings & graduations, bourbon tastings & barbeques!
Whatever the occasion, outdoor entertaining is one of the hallmarks of summer that I love, be it a rooftop garden, an elegantly manicured patio or sprawling lawn.
The sun shines bright on our old Kentucky home & the sky tends to open up on a moments notice. Wanting to avoid being drenched by occasional rain, we find ourselves seeking stylish shelter!
The best person to seek stylish shelter with is Anne Girault at Boutique Tents! Anne can renew your vision & your faith when it comes to entertaining in the great outdoors.
Whether you're hosting a fundraiser that calls for seating five hundred ~
Or cocktails at six ~
Boutique Tents has a beautiful array of bespoke cabanas, boutique tents, and timeless umbrellas that will complement your own personal style!
Anne has been immersed in the oeuvre of tents for nearly a decade. Her creations are inspired by her love of fashion, travel, motifs in nature, textiles, architecture, and interior design & it shows!
A valance with three layers of color, texture, and motion and the hand-painted pattern on the interior roof are fine examples of the innate sense of craft and workmanship that transforms these tents & cabanas into exquisite environments.
Her designs are so richly detailed. I love the classic style and touch of whimsy!
Perhaps you would prefer that weekend guests slip out of their wet suits outdoors as well.
Boutique Tents has got them covered!
And a beautiful bespoke umbrella is guaranteed to add character to your inner sanctuary and provide a charming place to plan your next soiree ~ quick before the summer ends!
Here's a sneak peek of a new parasol prototype & custom cocktail umbrellas for a wedding. At Boutique Tents the planning never ends!
Boutique Tents offers more than couture party cabanas, tents & scalloped cocktail umbrellas... on their website you'll also find custom fabric valances, beautifully hand-painted aisle rugs and banners!
I was so pleased to discover Anne Girault and her gorgeous Boutique Tents!
We became social on Instagram & she is so nice!
Be it a summer soiree or relaxing with the Sunday paper, I love to be outdoors and enjoying my surroundings, doesn't everyone?
