Last month I got a dream invitation from HomeMint – the new members-only home collection from Justin Timberlake and interior designer Estee Stanley. Host a summertime dinner party at my house, using my favorite pieces from HomeMint’s latest collections. Um… yes please! I immediately set my sights on a set of gorgeous dishes from the Canvas collaboration, and used their exotic blue and white pattern as the jumping off point for a Mediterranean-style al fresco fête. Photographer Buff Strickland captured each detail so beautifully… Click through the slides to see how it all came together!
Mediterranean cuisine is all about simple, fresh flavors using the very best ingredients. A fresh fruit platter is party-worthy when it incorporates produce as colorful as papayas, figs and honeydew melon at the height of their season. I arranged on top of a few fresh lemon leaves that imparted an intoxicating citrus-y perfume.
