The Perfect Recipe for a Summer Soiree

IMG_5185Throwing the perfect summer party isn’t that difficult. You just need a few key ingredients like… good weather and a group of people who are ready to have a great time!


For this particular Summer Soiree Recipe you will need —



  • 1 Beautifully Set Table
  • 1 Delicious Meal
  • 1 Big Group of Friends & Family



Mix them all together and it’s a recipe for a successful get together!


We sourced our table setting “ingredients” from Vision Furniture’s inventory and with the help of local event linen rental company Total Table.


IMG_5194Total Table provided the linens and napkins (like the “Jupiter” table cloth and Roma Silk napkins in the color “Canary”) and Vision Furniture brought out the King Tables, Belmont Charger Plates and Mahogany Chiavari Chairs with Crimson Bengaline cushions. Vision Furniture brand Bengaline Cushion Slip Covers are an easy way to change up the color of a standard cushion, and the sheen on the Bengaline material really brings texture and dimension to any table setting. Coordinating cushion colors with beautiful linens and napkins, like those offered at Total Table, really dresses up a dinner party with very little money and effort.


The food, on the other hand, takes a little more time and skill. For this particular party Patrick Adams, a close friend of Vision Furniture owners Sonya and Anthony Tokarchyk (and who just happens to be a talented chef and caterer) was in town and more than happy to help out. All the guests at the party helped out with the dinner preparation and with Patrick’s guidance an eight course meal was served! From chilled soup with crab, to osso bucco with creamy polenta, and Asian style salmon tartare — this menu was fantastic with many different tastes and cooking techniques from all over the world.


IMG_5371Patrick has been in the catering business for over 15 years, and his company Gourmet Design Catering has served many high-profile guests such as Barack Obama, P Diddy, Russell Simmons, Donald Trump, Mike Tyson, Shaquille O’Neal, Tiger Woods and the friends & family of Vision Furniture!
