Search no further for the perfect summer entertaining essentials. Below we highlight three of our favorite products to easily incorporate into your warm weather routine, plus some exclusive discount codes.

As we near the mid-summer mark in the Hamptons, we continue to appreciate the endless bounty of produce at the many farmer’s markets across the towns. A typical morning may start by crabbing or fishing, followed by an afternoon of endless plates of corn, cherries, and watermelon as a prequel to a weekend dinner party. Soon, sunflower season will begin, bringing another splendid opportunity to spend the day out in the fields with family.

It is also always so much fun to discover new products that complement the colorful summer entertaining routine.
