Sandcastle Cottage Celebration



Shirt: Goodnight Macaroon Sweater: Vineyard Vines ℅ Shorts: Anthropologie Sandals: J.Crew (also love these) Hat: J.Crew Glasses: Kate Spade

To kick off the start of Summer, my company Kiel James Patrick teamed up with Pottery Barn to throw an all-American themed beach bash. Check out Pottery Barn’s blog to see our behind the scenes inspiration and decorating tips. Special thank you to Lila Delman. This beautiful beach cottage in Westerly, RI created the perfect setting for our party. 
Ps. The recipe for the delicious Watermelon Mojito cocktails and mocktails featured in this post can be found here
