Weather experts are predicting a mild fall this season and while most of us, myself included, are already sipping on pumpkin coffee and eager to break out boots and sweaters, technically, it is still summer until Sept. 22.

So during those last few sunny and heat filled days where you’re just not ready to go inside, consider these last-minute summer entertaining tips from lifestyle expert Kat Tanita. She makes the most of summer fun with friends and Callie Collection wines and shares how to elevate your late season outdoor entertaining.

Tip 1

When entertaining outdoors, Tanita recommends keeping the décor simple and chic and let the food and wine do the talking. Callie Collections wines are made in California, complete with a California poppy. Tanita loves to add bright pops of color to her décor, an easy way to change up your tablescape.

Tip 2

It’s all in the detail so pay special attention to your table and dress it up with fun tablecloths and placecards. You won’t have to worry about any spills since all Callie Collection wines are twist to open.

Tip 3

Pay a visit to the farmers market and embrace the fresh local fruits and vegetables in season. Even end of the summer produces some sweet picks, like Tanita’s favorite peach salad paired with a delicious Pinot Grigio.

Try Kat Tanita’s entertaining tips and grab the new Callie Collection Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay and Fresh Red Blend at your local wine retailer for $13.99.
