Store-bought Florals. Consider grocery stores such as Whole Foods, which carry arrangements and prepackaged selections including a tropical mix with palms, ginger, and bird of paradise. Or, choose classic, go-with-anything florals such as garden roses or white ranunculus. Tulum-style Touches. Add seashells, Mexican blankets and other textiles, and arrangements of orchids, bromeliads, and hanging foliage. Burn copal incense to fill the air with an exotic scent and keep bugs at bay. Hurricanes. Illuminate your space with open-top hurricanes to throw protected candlelight. Decorative Tiles. "ey make the most beautiful, mismatched coasters for a dinner or cocktail party," says DeSantis. His top brand picks are Cletile, Zia, and Mission. Turkish Accents. Collect Turkish towels or linens to lay on the backs of outdoor chairs to add pattern and texture, and to keep dinner guests toasty on cool nights. DeSantis calls this tip "a great example of a décor element that serves up style and function." Moroccan Elements. Add poufs, spread dhurries and Beni Ourain-style rugs (known for their geometric patterns), serve drinks in tea glasses, and light up the night with Moroccan lanterns. Garden Installation. Suspend a floating meadow in the air for a "show-stopping, immersive experience." Attach a chicken wire base in a covered patio, under a pergola, or on a garden wall, and fill with dried, fresh, and faux flowers. manscapersny.com Summer Sips Jen Byard, founder of Communal, a creative café and shop with four locations throughout San Diego (including two in Oceanside), offers a seasonal menu, curated goods, fresh flowers, and workshops, including cocktail tastings.
