Ahhh! I love summer. The slower pace and no schedule make it my favorite season. One of my favorite things to do each summer is entertain friends at home. So many people are hesitant to entertain at home but it doesn’t have to be complicated. With a great bottle of wine like Ecco Domani Pinot Grigio #StyledbySiriano, a few easy recipes and simple but elegant table, you’re set for a beautiful time with friends. ​​

I am so excited to be one of the newest members of the #EccoStyleSociety and share my thoughts on Easy and Elegant Summer Entertaining with Ecco Domani. I recently had a few friends over to celebrate and catch up before we disperse for summer. Several of these girls I met through blogging and we’ve developed good friendships so it is nice to have time to get together in a casual setting.

This was the first gathering I hosted in our newly completed Outdoor Living Area I showed you on Friday.  Being in this new gorgeous space with friends and hearing about Mary’s recent anniversary trip to Palm Springs while sipping Ecco Domani’s refreshing Pinot Grigio made me feel like I was momentarily in Palm Springs, too… the inspiration of Christian Siriano’s Resort Collection and the Ecco Domani x Christian Siriano Designer Label partnership.

Inspired by the gorgeous label’s nod to the iconic glamour of Palm Springs’ florals and brights, I created an easy, elegant tablescape. The Ecco Domani Pinot Grigio x Christian Siriano Designer Label’s bright green palm leaf and bold pink design was perfect for my tablesetting. You know I’m a girl who loves pink!

Deep pink peonies and lime green hydrangeas added a beautiful living element. The table runner, linen napkins and plates echoed the lively colors of Christian Siriano’s Resort Collection. The menu is fresh and colorful as well: Caramelized Onion Arugula Flatbread (gluten-free, of course!), Pineapple Gazpacho, Roasted Beet Hummus, Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus and Strawberry Avocado Salsa. Each of these recipes is easy, quick and all made ahead of time leaving you relaxed and free to enjoy your guests.

100% Italian, Ecco Domani Pinot Grigio’s light citrus and delicate floral aromas, tropical fruit flavors and crisp refreshing finish made it the perfect complement to my menu and also pairs well with fish and chicken. With an accessible price point, this will be our go-to for entertaining this summer.

Cheers to upgrading your everyday with #EccoDomani this summer!
