Summer in Chicago offers endless opportunities for inventive and inspired entertaining. Mal Marcus, Event Producer at visionary production company Kehoe Designs, shares five tips for creating a chic summer soiree to capture the spirit of the season.

Bring The Indoors Outside


Once summer arrives, your patio becomes a second living room. Deck it out with furnishings that are nice enough for home, but withstand the elements.

Go Green


It’s the color of the year and the season. Group plants and trees together to instantly transport guests to a more tropical locale.

Captivate With Color


A strong color palette sets the tone. Introduce pops of color through linens, throw pillows, and wall treatments. Fresh blooms from the farmer’s market also do the trick.

Celebrate The Season


Add seasonal interest by incorporating shells, coral, or nautical rope to a tablescape or overall décor to evoke the essence of summer.

Light It Up!


It’s true: lighting is everything. Whether it’s a grouping of lake house lanterns or sweet festoon lighting overhead, lighting adds the finishing touch to any ambience.

Bonus Tip: Relax and enjoy your own party by enlisting the pros. For event design and décor, contact Kehoe Designs at 312-421-0030 or info@kehoedesigns.com. For eye-catching florals and verdant designs, contact Floral Exhibits at 773-277-1888 or info@floralexhibits.com.
