Everything You Need to Host A Summer Getaway

The heart of summer is upon us and all we can think about is how to get ourselves outside as much as possible!! In search for a break from the popular day trip to wine country and in an attempt to completely unplug for the long holiday weekend, why not host the 4th at a cabin with fram-ily?

First you need a great rental. Something like Sarah Sherman Samuel’s would do, but since no cabin comes close to her modern beaut, let’s just imagine you find something with a vast deck, equipped with a fram-ily style table and a killer view. I mean, that’s easy, right??

The truly hard part is figuring out what to wear! Summer in the woods is usually hot and often crazy humid, but can also be chilly in the evening {especially when Karl the Fog is on duty}. So it’s all about light layers. And since this is likely a trip with some of your chicest friends, no hiking boots or cargo shorts will be allowed!

Hopefully, you’ll see a lot of the sun {so don’t be shy and say hello with this selfie-ready phone case!}. This pocket-enhanced bamboo-blend jacket, layered over a relaxed tee, will protect you against the strong rays as well as keep you warm as the sun sets. We love that it gives you “cargo” without giving you CARGO. And let’s talk about how perfectly these low-heeled booties match the jacket- talk about layering staples!

No need to worry about the humidity effecting your locks. Top off your look with a laid-back straw Havana hat that’ll tame that frizz and still give you the “I just got out of bed” look. Matched with a picturesque and adventurous scarf, you’ll be taking a break from everything but style!

Besides enjoying the outdoors and lookin’ good doing it, there isn’t much more to worry about…than what to eat and drink of course! These Lamb Burgers served on Pita with Mint Feta Pesto are sure to feed hungry guests who have been on the lake all day. Talk about an upgrade on that plain ole’ hamburger!

get your shop on: Ornamental Paddle // Bamboo Picnic Tublers // Compostable Bamboo Plates // Enamel Servers // West Elm Bowl // Bamboo Basket-Tray // Petrified Wood Coasters // Rebecca Atwood Pillow // Hand-Sculpted Resin Champagne Bucket 

In our dream cabin, the party is only as good as its details. So deck out that gorgeous farm table with inky tones to play off the deep blue of the high mountain lake water. Use organic shapes as your homage to nature and of course, cabin-inspired tableware will be your final touch. It’s important to keep the bubbly ice cold {especially when you’re under the sun!}, and this simple yet stylish champagne bucket does the trick!

Remember: the most important part of any getaway is to enjoy the time with your loved ones. Even when you’re back to your regular routine, you’ll be talking about all of those fun moments you shared over a glass {or three!} of wine. We can’t wait for fun under the memories to begin!

Where would you go for the perfect getaway this summer? Let us know! — Bianca
