A Poolside Picnic

By: Stella Blackmon, Clementine Daily

With summer temperatures reaching an all-time high, it is time to take your next get together to the poolside. Let Caldrea’s Sea Salt Neroli, a seashore of citrus and juniper scents, inspire a picnic fiesta by turquoise water. The switch in scenery provides the perfect cool-down element to the traditional sun-drenched gathering.

Layer neutral linens and tribal patterned blankets next to the pool and stage with light afternoon reads and bottles of chilled sparkling citrus water to encourage guests to unwind while they dip their feet in. Fashion an outdoor table with a colorful spread of sea-salted chips, grilled vegetables and homemade salsa and queso. The array of hors d'oeuvres will hold up in the heat and provide enough food to keep guests satisfied. Infuse margarita pitchers with slices of orange and grapefruit and fresh garden herbs for the ultimate refresher.

The relaxed, yet thoughtful poolside fête will provide the right amount of escape from the scorching heat and celebration of the sunny season.
