With the unofficial start to summer officially kicked off, Dwayne is so ready to dive into some summer fun! As a designer, Dwayne loves the start of a new season. It’s a chance to give your home a little refresh, turn it over for the bevy of seasonal events that lie ahead, but there’s nothing quite like the start of summer to really energize and inspire. This week we’ll share some family favorite treats to beat the heat, outdoor entertaining ideas for all those #revengeparties, and activities for little ones to make the most of their vacation, even if you plan to stay close to home. We want to know about your summer plan! Whether you’re taking a trip, investing in a new wardrobe, refreshing your outdoor space or just relaxing poolside, share your plans with us by replying to this message or snapping a picture to post on Instagram and tag @dwaynebergmanndesign. Let the summer fun begin!
Most other places in the country get to enjoy a variety of temperatures throughout the year, but here in Southwest Florida we go from warm, to warmer, to hot, to scorching almost overnight. The best way to beat the heat during the blazing summer months is with refreshing drinks and light fare. Because cucumbers have a natural cooling effect, and they grow in abundance in his garden, Dwayne incorporates them into just about everything this time of year! Slice them up to enjoy with dips as a crunchy alternative to chips, pair them with mint, watermelon, vodka and splash of tonic for a delightful summer cocktail or grate some into Greek yogurt with a twist of lemon, garlic and olive oil for a simple tzatziki sauce to pair with grilled meats and veggies. Dwayne loves cooking with seasonal ingredient like citrus, stone fruits and bright herbs. He plans to experiment all summer long with new flavors of his signature homemade non-dairy ice creams.
We all missed out on the favorite past times of gathering around the grill or hitting the deck with our loved ones last year, so this year we’re planning to make up for it by hosting #revengeparties! Dwayne loves to invite intimate groups into his home for meals and conversation. Whether you’re hosting a big family reunion or just entertaining a few close friends, make sure your space is ready for guests with a few simple tricks. Keep the party outdoors well into the evening with strategically placed lighting, ward off bugs with citronella candles placed throughout the space like decorative votives and invest in some outdoor dining ware to make serving a pleasure and clean up a breeze. Invite guests to sport their finest resort wear like breezy linens, woven accessories, and wide brim hats to really make a showstopping spectacle. Athleisure is so last year!
With the little ones finishing up their school year, they’ll be looking for some warm weather entertainment to make the most of their well-deserved summer vacation. Set them up for some self-guided fun with a season-long project like building an outdoor playhouse, tending a garden or rehearsing for a play or kid circus to be performed on Labor Day. Let their imaginations run free with challenges to meet along the way and milestones to mark their success. Supplement with some crafts like “stained glass” tissue paper creations or shell painting, and healthy activities like kid-friendly workout routines and regular bike rides. Making up for the long days spent cooped up indoors last year, Dwayne and his little ones plan to enjoy everything the season has to offer while making memories that will last a lifetime.
