Celebrating in (Dudley) Style

Celebrating in (Dudley) Style

Though there’s plenty of fleece in our closets begging for chillier weather, right now we’re all about embracing the long, lazy days of summer. We celebrated all of the above in Nantucket last week, with a Dudley-style summer soirée we couldn’t wait to share. Here’s a behind-the-scenes glimpse at what made it one special evening.

The Theme: A Lobster Bake. Does it get more classic New England? Tiki torches, lanterns, blue gingham and yellow Dahlias set just the right tone.

The Signature Cocktail: Pineapple Chili Margarita. Our much-loved pineapple, side of spice. Summertime libation perfection. (Stay tuned here for mixing instructions!)

The View: Ocean waves for days. The Atlantic coastal view from our house was the picture-perfect backdrop to all the beach-glowing faces of our happy guests.
