Contributor Note: Today’s post is brought to you by Meg Grant, calligrapher, at-home entertaining expert, and founder of Meg Grant & Co. Meg began her career in Luxury Brand Management before changing her career course after having her son. Today Meg Grant is one of the most celebrated calligraphers in Houston, Texas. She’s consistently creating for weddings, high stakes soirees, and editorial assignments. When not working, she cherishes time with her son, yellow Labrador, and traveling the world – all of which inspire and inform her work.

Whenever I entertain, I always think about how to create a new and fresh experience for my guests. Whether that is with the food, decor, guest list, or another element, I love surprising my guests with a unique experience. Creative entertaining doesn’t have to be complicated; it’s about simple, unexpected touches and using what you already have in new ways.

We’re heading to North Carolina for a beach weekend with our NYC besties for Memorial Day weekend, and I have to admit that I’m ready for some salty air and a little R&R (as much as you can have with a house full of kiddos in tow!). I’ve rounded up my favorite Memorial Day finds from poolside essentials to casual evening dinner attire. You can’t go wrong with blue and white stripes and statement accessories!

I hope you have a relaxing long weekend wherever you are! xo

Our garden party took place in a gorgeous home by Marie Flanigan Interiors. Mostess styled the tabletop and bar cart with beautiful flower arrangements by Maxit Flower Design, whimsical calligraphy menus by Meg Grant & Co, and incredible hors d’oeuvres by Smart in the Kitchen.
