Soak up the sun

Don’t hide from the heat — get out and entertain with bright colors and New Orleans flair.

Louisiana’s food, music and festivals are world-renowned, and in July our “frying an egg on the sidewalk” type of heat can be pretty awe-inspiring, as well.

When the outside becomes an oven, only a party and a cool drink can save us. Dive into refreshments poolside, and only come up for a fabulous accessory or, of course, a mint julep. Together, they are a winning combination.

This season, don’t hold back on color! From brilliant reds to verdant greens to the deep-blue claws of a Louisiana blue crab, we have highlighted fun, colorific items to include on your summer entertaining must-have list this month from Belladonna, Quince, Pied Nu and perch.
