We’re sharing how to set the scene with cute decor, delicious and simple BBQ recipes, refreshing TIU approved cocktails, and outfit inspo! So invite your girls over and toast the holiday and the end of an amazing summer! Have the best weekend babe!



PS: Let’s all take a few moments this weekend to remember what this special holiday is all about. We’re so thankful for all of the work of those around us and all who came before us. We’re so grateful for all of our opportunities to do what we love every day and to have you in our lives! 💕

Your Perfect Summer Evening ✨

Soak in every last minute of summer at your party! Set the scene outside so your guests can watch the sunset as you chat. We love a low table look with comfy pillows and blankets for a more laidback and relaxed vibe! We chose to do a mix of pillows and bright colors for a summery look. You can mix and match pillows you have at home or grab some at Target, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Home Goods, or Anthropologie (some of our faves!) Re-create this look by the beach, a park, or even your backyard!

Set your tablescape with candles and fresh flower arrangements to really set the scene and the mood!

Cute Party Outfits

If the weather is still nice and warm like it is here in Manhattan Beach choose a flowy jumpsuit or light sundress dress to celebrate in!

Kat’s jumpsuit is from Free People and her headband is from Madewell! She also loves a Forever 21 romper or maxi! And of course anything crochet!

I got this dress from Greigh Goods, a boutique in Manhattan Beach, and my necklace from Rewind Jewelry! The dress is so comfy!

If you’re hosting a day party with a pool or by the beach make sure to grab your new bikini at the Tone It Up Boutique!  Isssaaa party in the boutique and we’re having a HUGE Summer Sale with up to 45% savings! Get ready to wow!!!
