Preppy Party Ideas

Summer is for Gin and Tonics, Faded Nantucket Reds, Ray Bans and all things preppy. I am getting wistful for my days at boarding school. Here are some fun ideas to add some preppy touches to your summer gathering.

A chic and well stocked bar - note the preppy ribbon

Or a BLUE SEERSUCKER ice bucket

Classic Grosgrain Napkin Rings - go HERE for the "how tos"

If you aren't feeling crafty, you can buy a set from SOCIAL COUTURE

Preppy placemats from MATTIE LUXE

A MADRAS tablecloth lined with Seersucker 

A nautical centerpiece and go HERE for the details

I love this table setting from OH HAPPY DAY - it would be easy to do and so affordable

These BRACELETS would be perfect party favors from Kiel James Patrick

Monogram cookies from ETSY

Ocean Inspired Cookies from ELENI'S which will make you think of summers on the Cape

Preppy Cupcake KIT from Meri Meri


  1. LOVE this post....so many beautiful and great ideas. I actually helped plan a graduation party for my friends good son graduating from high school (he is a huge prep) and we took bracelets very simliar to those you showed above and we used them as napkin rings which doubled as the favor....they were great looking! Bookmarking this post so I can come back to it.....

  2. such charming ideas! I really love the bracelets, and the table setting from OH HAPPY DAY... You could do that easy table setting with a variety of colors! Color is a wonderful and often inexpensive way of entertaining beautifully, isn't it?

  3. Love it ALL!!! Love the simplicity of the bottle opener tied on with a preppy ribbon...and I need one of those rope bracelets!!


  4. Love, love the ribbon flag banner!

  5. Those Eleni cookies are such fun and I can't wait to sink my toes into some Cape Cod sand next week!

  6. What a fun preppy post!! I especially love the madras tablecloth!!

  7. I love anything Preppy!!! What a fun party. I did the napkin holders for my Easter table in bright green and white striped with a bright yellow zig-zag runner. It was so easy to do and now I have them to use whenever I want!! Kathysue
