'Tis the season for backyard BBQs, pool-side parties, and sun-soaked hangouts. Get prepped for all of summer's parties with a palette of patriotic colors and a variety of entertaining essentials. Double woven rattan serveware, shatter-proof acrylic drinkware, and abundant paper napkins and plates are our among our most necessary must-haves for outdoor dining. But our best hot-weather hosting tip is to set guests up to serve themselves! Create a colorful display on your bar or credenza where everyone can grab-and-go without a fuss. This allows the hostess to sit back, relax, and never leave her float because that's what summer is for.
A serving tray is a perfect way to display your dining essentials. Set out plates, napkins, and utensils in plain view or create a stylish drink station.
Once you've gathered everything your guests need, it's time to turn your attention to the décor. At our last patriotic party, we went all-out with a transformative trick that will elevate your party style to new heights. Choose a selection of Caspari napkins that fit your palette and theme to create a bold patchwork accent wall. The supplies are minimal but the impact is huge.
Iron your napkins, tape your patches, and set up your self-service station. This eye-catching wall display will lead guest right where they need to be to get a plate, grab a drink, and join in on the summer fun!
Evoking the bohemian spirit of the artists and writers who used to call the Left Bank of Paris home, this is a collection of lush jewel tones, deep blacks, and an eclectic mix of patterns. The architectural details of the city’s 19th-century limestone buildings offer a grand canvas for playing with richly textured fabrics, glimmering gold, and shades of amethyst, berry, and coral. Layering traditional decorative elements with pops of intense color results in an effortless glamour that somehow feels especially Parisian.
Mix & match these empowering patterns and electric colors to create your own contemporary Parisian style.
Since our founding in 1945, our team of designers has drawn inspiration from the world of fine art, fashion, and interior design for every Caspari collection. Like these inspiration-industries, the collections we produce each season reflect trending contemporary styles while maintaining an air of classicism and time-honored style. Interior design is one such house of inspiration that marries new trends with traditional design particularly well, and we love adapting home textiles, ceramics, and other interior attributes for the Caspari tabletop. From upholstery and wallpaper to vases and objet, tabletop inspiration is everywhere within showhouses and Pairs pied-à-terres.

This timeless color combination transcends all genres of style from Chinoiserie designs, to contemporary fashion, to traditional bohemian prints. While we may think of it today as having an almost psychedelic vibe (because it reminds us most recently of the 60s), we can trace this combo back much farther through indigenous South American arts. It’s a powerful pair that instantly conveys boldness and energy when brought together. We love orange and pink pairings for summer because these two “hot” colors perfectly convey the mood of the season—bright, warm, and vibrant. These elements translate effortlessly to a tabletop when it’s time to prepare for summer parties and gatherings!

With the arrival of the new year and the transformative spring season trailing not far behind it, we’ve been thinking about ways to refresh and awaken our homes. The thaw of winter brings a new found energy; flowers bloom, grass grows, birds chirp, and the sky sheds its gray tone for a brighter shade of blue. Our spring collection reflects this buzzing, energetic feeling through an abundance of color, movement, and inspiration from nature. Hand-painted florals range from the soft watercolor variety to bold and wildly brushed blooms. We’ve selected art from renowned botanical painters and esteemed horticultural organizations, which captures the detailed beauty of the season’s fruit and flora. Other pieces from the collection draw inspiration from ceramic arts, textile designs, and artworks from museums around the world.
Because of Caspari’s ties to fine arts, interior design, and even fashion, our products effortlessly make the transition from utilitarian to artistic with just a few simple steps. You can bring the bright, bold, and blossoming feelings of spring to your walls with our spring wrapping paper collection! The durable and high-quality printed papers can be used to create a gallery wall fit for a true gallery, as well as one that gets your decor in-step with the season. We’ll show you how to create a chic framed assortment of Caspari art.
The beauty of a gallery wall is in it’s eclectic, well-mixing but not matching style. Select a variety of prints that you love and that “feel” right together to you. We recommend 5-7 for a small gallery. Browse our spring paper assortment and make note of your favorite designs.
Do you want a perfectly symmetrical gallery with matching frames? Or do you want a mixture of sizes and colors? Decide which patterns you want to frame with a mat and which you want to frame in a simple fashion.
You know the golden rule! But with a simple trick, you won't need to measure at all to get a perfect fit. Remove the glass from your frame and lay it on the backside of your chosen paper, then trace around the edges lightly with a pencil and cut along that line. If you have a paper cutter, we recommend it for smooth, straight cuts, but a sharp pair of scissors will work just as well.
Before you hang your spring gallery, lay it out on the floor to create the perfect arrangement. Which patterns look the best side by side? Which frames line up well? If you want to add any art or objects you already have to the wall, now is the time to mix them in!
Grab your hammer & nails and transfer your gallery layout to the wall!
