Summer Entertaining With Target

I like to take advantage of my summers by doing a lot of entertaining and get togethers. Some of my get togethers are just with family, some are just with my girlfriends, and others are with family friends. Any excuse to get together, eat good food, and enjoy good company, is great with me. When I am in the planning stages of a party or social gather, I often plan to do my summer entertaining with Target. Target has great products for every occasion, and their prices are often great! I especially love the end cap clearance sections, which other stores around here do not have! I personally feel that when I go to Target I can get some really fun, funky, and when the occasion strikes, classy, items for all types of entertaining.

This summer, Target has a new line of products, which are bright and bold – perfect for summer parties. The summer entertaining assortment features bold graphics and vibrant colors on everything from tabletop pieces to backyard essentials and picnic must-haves to help you make the most of summer. I received the 14 products listed below, and couldn’t wait to use them for a gathering.  Be sure to check out Target’s summer catalog where you can find all of these products and more for summer:

  • Serving Bowl with Bamboo Lid – $11.99
  • Bamboo Serving Utensils – $7.99
  • Strawberry Melamine Dinnerware Plates (4) – $1.99 each
  • Strawberry Melamine Salad Plates (4) – $1.79 each
  • Strawberry Hi Ball Tumblers (4) – $1.99

I have a brother and his family visiting, so we had a gathering at my parent’s house this evening, where we had some good treats. I used the large serving bowl to hold chips and a California Caviar (recipe coming up shortly), which was delish, and served with style.

My mom made some homemade Rhubarb Cobbler, which served very well on the salad plates (Another recipe to come soon). I just love how bright the dishes are, which I feel brightens up any meal – just as it should be for summer.

This summer, Target is helping you make everyday moments more memorable. In stores, you’ll find giant photos of beach balls, sunglasses and sand buckets that direct you to the colorful summer merchandise.

Check out the Target facebook page to learn more about the new summer lines, and fun that they carry. While you are there, play with the “Summer-izer” Facebook application, which allows you and your kids to add “Big Honkin’ Summer” icons to photos, and then share online or print at a local Target Photo Center.
