Summer Lawn Party

Today we have a treat from guest contributor Tiffany Avant of Camp1899. A personal stylist and blogger, Tiffany is a free spirit with a love for vintage airstreams, 80's music and James Bond. Being a Southern girl at heart, Tiffany envisioned her ideal Summer Lawn Party inspiration to share with us today!

It's all about lawn parties, sweet tea, and hammocks. Have your guests over for an intimate backyard rehearsal dinner, impromptu engagement party, or just to celebrate family and friends.
