The Art of the Cocktail Hour ‘Australian Summer Chic’… A Bittersweet Change of Season

Today is bittersweet, both a special day that comes round only once every four years, as well as the day to say goodbye to a Summer that never occurred. With record breaking rainfall we can only hope the warmer weather is delayed and that Autumn may provide the summery days we have been waiting for.

To celebrate this marked change of season, I would like to share another of the Cocktail Hour inspiration posts we created for Cointreau’s blog, The Art of the Cocktail Hour. If you are lucky enough to live near the beach like Zed, perhaps our recent post, Cocktail hour inspiration: Australian summer chic (see above), provides you with hosting ideas for your casually cool beach/backyard shindig.

Alternatively, with my trip to the UK only a week away, our post, Cocktail hour inspiration: English garden party, offers more refined party styling ideas, making use of sprawling sun kissed lawns and milder temperatures. Hopefully there will be many more weekends over March and April to don a pretty lace dress and head outside for a Great Gatsbyesque party in the sun.
