Our Summer Essentials for Parties & Travel
Written by: Brooke
Whether you are spending your summer by the pool, beach or on vacation, we are so excited that warm weather is here! Brooke stopped by FOX 4 Kansas City this morning to share tips on all of our "Summer Essentials" to look your best and have a summer of fun!
1. Party Essentials - Olive Events: If you are hosting a fun summer party or special dinner party, it can be a lot of fun, but also a lot of work! We love the idea of inviting friends or family over for a chill night with delicious food, cocktails and fun conversations. Instead of spending your entire day in the kitchen, leave the food to an expert, like Olive Events catering! Olive Events is a full-service catering company that offers festive cuisine for any occasion. We love these melon and prosciutto bite-sized appetizers paired with a fresh caprese salad for a hot summer party.
2. Summer Cocktails - Top Shelf Bartending Service: No one wants to play bartender when you are hosting an event! Again, we like leaving the cocktails up to the experts. Top Shelf Bartending offers personal, professional bartending services with unique cocktails that would make a fun element to your event. This Sonic inspired cherry limeade is SO tasty!
3. Grilling Must-Haves - Flying Pig: For impromtu parties and nights grilling out, make sure your kitchen is stocked up with fun essentials like spices and barbeque sauce. Flying Pig Local Mercantile offers a variety of local goods at their shop in the Crossroads. These essentials would also make a fun host/hostess gift!
4. Vacation - Blue Water Travel: Need a vacation? We always love taking one summer trip, even if it's a short one! Instead of attempting to plan a vacation on your own, we like to leave the planning portion up to the experts. Blue Water Travel is a full-service travel agency with over 23 years in business! Let them take the stress out of planning your vacation.
5. Nutrition Planning - Real Life Nutrition: Look and feel your best this summer! Jessica of Real Life Nutrition is a certified nutritionist and coach that creates personalized plans. We love that Jessica focuses on real plans for real women that are all about living a healthy lifestyle. She can help you stop dieting and start living your life in a way that increases your energy, improves sleep and turns your body in a fat-burning machine!
6. Stylish Swimwear - Nani Nalu Beachwear: If you dred swimsuit season --- you no longer have to! Nani Nalu is a swim boutique located on the Plaza that offers an incredible experience! Their team of swim stylists will help you discover the best beachwear styles for your body and personality. Simply book your consultation ahead of time and they will pull swim styles for you to try in-store. You will be surprised by the looks that are the best fit for you!
