Style Inspiration: Fresh & Fun Outdoor Cookout Party
With summer weather in full swing, we’ve been especially inspired by all things outdoors. If you’re in Nashville (or anywhere in the United States), take one step outside around dinner time and you’ll smell it. It’s cookout season. From neighborhood block parties to back-to-school parties (soon!) to corporate get-togethers, most events migrate outdoors to make use of the green grass, fresh blooms, and blue skies. Southern Events recently partner with local Nashville vendors to create a fresh look for an outdoor party style shoot. Join us as we reminisce over the laid-back feel of the event.
Most people love the easy-natured feel of an outdoor cookout party. It just brings people together. Simple and comfortable textures, rustic accessories, and bright colors marry to create a fresh and fun vibe. We used Red and White Check Linens to emphasize the nostalgic feel and bring a fun, picnic theme to the look. The cookout food was set atop our White-Washed Barnwood Barrel Bar. Festive ice-cold drinks were served in our Hungarian Baby Bath.
An important part of any event is having more than just one area for guests to lounge. If you want them to stick around after the food (or make sure they’re comfy while waiting to dig in), we recommend a lounge area. For this outdoor cookout party, we brought our Simplicity Bench, Chocolate Pouf, Stone Round Fire Pit, and plenty of pillows and blankets for texture and to help make the party feel more inviting.
We had so much fun working on this shoot with the talented Locklane Events and Feather and Oak at Cedarmont Farms and adore these images provided by Erin Allender Photography. Here’s to Southern summers!
If you’re planning a back-to-school outdoor party or a fun corporate get-together, we’d love to help make it stylish & Southern. Send us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org.
