This is How Ralph Lauren's Wife Throws a Dinner Party A strictly-conyo dress code, NOT required.

Ricky Lauren is living the American dream – first dibs on a multi-billion dollar fashion label, successful kids, covetable career, loving husband, and oh, a chic beach house in the Hamptons. Although not all of us have access to a lavish estate, don’t let it get in the way of throwing a dinner party, Ricky-Lauren-style.

1. Dine Al Fresco

One thing us city girls tend to avoid is eating outside because no one wants to dare inhale Manila pollution. But throwing a dinner party like Madame Lauren requires the great outdoors so, setting up some tents and a table in your backyard (or your friend’s) is required.

2. Provide Great Lighting

You can get crafty with the lighting situation come dusk. Try hanging up some christmas lights (Typo at the 1st level of Trinoma has really great ones or you can make use of the ones from last Christmas!) above the table to provide great ambience and a hint of intimacy. Bonus points for making the whole setup instagrammable, too!

3. Serve Colorful Food with Chic Linens to Match

When it comes to dinner parties, Mrs. Lauren is all about presentation. After all, she is the wife of a fashion designer. Make sure to serve tasty, colorful food atop linens in contrasting color for potential #flatlay photos. You can even add texture by transforming your old jeans into table napkins. Interesting accents (like the lamp and the seashell) add character and make for a great conversation starter, too!

4. Dress to Impress

What’s a party without having a dress code? Encourage all of your guests to come in their best duds. After all, dressing well is a form of good manners. And as for your OOTD? Take some inspiration from RL’s Hamptons style. Chambray + stripes = effortless beach babe hostess.

5. Invite Your Closest Friends and Family

When it comes down to one thing for Ricky Lauren, family comes first. So put mom and dad on the guest list and make room for your siblings too. We promise it’ll be more fun!
