Ade Samuel has worked with the likes of the Kardashians, Beyonce and more A-List stars! Now she’s telling us her star-studded secrets on how to throw the ultimate summer bash, while looking your best! Get the guide to the total party package!

“The ultimate Summer party includes festive decor as well refreshing drinks!” Ade told EXCLUSIVELY. “Make sure the atmosphere feels authentic to you, and your guests feel the vibe as soon as they walk through the door. I love variant ambiances and like to incorporate that into my parties. The brunch I hosted is to celebrate the new Red Bull Summer Edition Coconut Berry, so it was all about tropical vibes.” But, how did she create those island vibes? — “I used tropical leaves with calligraphy instead of traditional place cards,” Ade explained. “I also styled drinks with mini umbrellas and floral garnishes, which added an eye-catching element!” 

What’s the perfect festival and summer style trend? Can you share a few you particularly like?

The best looks during Summer are any looks that are flowy (dresses, blouses, shorts) and anything with color! BOLD colors and standout prints are some of Spring/Summer 2018 biggest runway trends. Throw away black for summer and add some color to your wardrobe!

Can you share your party “dos” and “donts?” 

Do make seating arrangements in advance to make sure everyone has a seat and encourage great conversation.

Do incorporate small surprises throughout the event to keep your guests excited. 

Don’t forget to be a good host and make time for everyone! 

What’s one common mistake that people make when throwing/planning a party? 

The one common mistake I see that happens often is when people try and create a “Perfect” party. When throwing a party – the aim is to have fun and also to create that kind of environment! Don’t overthink! Just enjoy the party planning process, as it’s very creative and exciting.

Now that you’ve got the tips and tricks to throw the best summer bash, it’s time to add a tasty twist to your party!
