Elle Entertains: White Out Party

There's always been an outstanding rule of fashion that denotes that white is not to be worn after Labor Day. Since that day is coming up, I'm having a White Out party this weekend! I'm serving foods and drinks that are typically only found during (or remind me of) summer. Come along! You're invited!


White is the color of the party! It's a last chance to wear our white clothes before fall hits--a playful take on the fashion rule that's ok to break. I'm wearing a cute party dress from Forever 21 with a Murano glass necklace that I got in Italy. I also did another post on my other possible White Out outfit.

My colors are represented in the pic above. I'll use white and the muted pinks and greens. It reminds me of a muted watermelon, and that makes me think of summer. Does that make sense?

  • I'm having a slider bar! Guests can fix their mini-burgers to their liking. I'm serving beef, turkey and portabello burgers.
  • To keep with the summery theme, I'm making my popular black bean salsa with tortilla chips.



  • Watermelon martinis sound so refreshing! For the beer drinkers, I'll also have beers that remind me of summer, like Sam Adam's Summer Ale and Coronas. Water and sweet tea will be on hand for those that prefer it.
  • I plan on serving lime sorbet inside of the limes, just like the pic above. How cute!

  • I'm sure I'll be playing selections from my Summer Mix to keep the party going!
Would you have a White Out party? What would you serve? Which outfit did you like best?


  1. hello there! just stumbled across your blog and thought you might be interested in the jane iredale giveaway I'm currently running.
    Stop by and take a peek!

  2. sounds like a fun party! enjoy your labor day weekend!!

  3. sounds like fun!!! love the dress

  4. I actually do slider bars for dinner parties! It's so much fun! Everyone brings a pound of their meat of choice, and toppings of choice - turkey is my fav :)


  5. Oh my! This sounds like my kind of party! The menu looks so yum...watermelon martinis do sound very refreshing.
    You'll look pretty in that dress. Especially with the torquoise necklace. Very nice touch!

    Have tonnes of fun!

  6. Cute idea! I've been trying to wear all my summer favorites this week. But, it has been in the 90's, and looks like it will be for a while, so I don't think summer is actually going any where any time soon!


  7. This looks like it will be a great party. The white dress is beautiful, and I like the idea of lime sorbet served inside the limes!
    Summer is almost over and I'm sad to part with it, but this seems like a great way to do it!

  8. Sounds like a good party to me :)

  9. Sounds like a fabulous affair. You had me at watermelon 'tinis!

  20. Ooh loving this party! How about white drinks and snacks - I see lemon spritzers, marshmallows, cheeses, and cream cheese frosting.
