This summer has flown by! However, it is not over yet, and if you’re anything like me, you are soaking up every last bit of sunshine and trying to fit in as many outdoor get-togethers as possible before the cooler temps hit. I thought it would be so fun to host an end-of-summer party with a few girlfriends to finish the summer on a high note. AKA I wanted an excuse to wear my new white dress before Labor Day and – let’s be honest – I’ll use any excuse to get the girls together. [Disclaimer: I totally wear white after Labor Day, too.]

I am very excited to be partnering with Chloe Wine Collection to create this end-of summer party inspiration, highlighting their light and crisp Pinot Grigio. Produced in Northern Italy, it is one of my absolute favorite wines and has the most heavenly notes of juicy white peach, soft melon, crisp apple, floral honeysuckle and a hint of Meyer lemon – perfect for summer entertaining– and always a huge hit with guests.

The theme was “White Before Labor Day,” but this elegant dinner inspiration would also be perfect for any type of summer entertaining: engagement parties, bridal showers, birthdays, etc. And how amazing is this rooftop view at NEMA, a luxury apartment complex in San Francisco?!

I hope this inspires you to host an elegant night for a few of your best girlfriends because saying goodbye to summer is hard, but good friends and delicious wine can make it a little easier.
