Start your Summer the Known Associates Way


With summer knocking on our doors and creeping in our windows, now is THE time to get all your faves together to host a fresh, super-fun Summer Bash to welcome the sunshine.

If you’re not on the grazing table bandwagon just yet, jump aboard! A summer soiree is the perfect opportunity to show off your creative style and really WOW your guests. Our hot tips to creating an AH-mazing grazing platter start with the basics: obtain your ideal sized table, a rustic wooden table will give you that ultimate grazing aesthetic. Next, make sure to mix it up with different natural colours, textures and heights to highlight different foods and give your table depth. 

Selecting fresh, local produce for your table will have your guests drooling- think gourmet cheese, plenty of nuts, seasonal fruit and a touch (code for a HEAP) of chocolate. Add your finishing touches such as sprigs of rosemary, fresh-cut flowers and leaves and viola! A stunning table your squad will devour (after getting the perfect gram’ of course!). Head over to the grazing guru Tiffany Keal Creative Studio for inspo on how to jazz up your table like the pro’s.

Summer furniture is another MUST for your bash as heavy furnishings and too-dark tableware can give your guests the wrong vibes. The masters at Hire Society are our one stop shop for all our event stylings, with funky AF lounge furniture as well as long tables and groovy seating perfect for any party. Set the perfect table with Side Serve Perth, with luxe tableware that will brighten your table in ways you couldn’t dream. A tip from Sabrina at Side Serve: “Napkins no longer belong in a napkin ring! They can be knotted, folded or placed under the plates.“ Click here for more of Side Serve Perth’s tips on how to style and set your table, including napkin origami, glassware placement and crockery choice.

The day wouldn’t be complete without super-fresh cocktails in the sunshine, so head over to Dan Murphy’s and pick up the magical Ink Gin we used at our Ferrari Dinner for Driven Women. Impressing guests’ to the MAX, the gin turns from a deep blue to brilliant purple, and will make your bash the party of the season!

Get planning people, we are sooo looking forward to the invite!
