How to Throw the Perfect Party on the Porch

Welcome to the #PorchSittingSocietyan exclusive group that combines girlfriends, seasonally inspired cocktails, and the perfect setting…the porch.


Right now, with the unofficial start of summer after Memorial Day, we love the spirit of the porch. We don’t know if it is the pure welcoming nature it represents or the feeling that time just seems to tick a little more slowly while chit chatting on a porch—either way, a porch party with our official Porch Sitting Society is our soiree of the moment.

One of our favorite aspects of a Porch Party is that it does not entail days of prep or really even hours. The only requirements are really great girlfriends, light food and sparkling drinks…and, of course, a fabulous porch.

Our exclusive Porch Sitting Society collection coupled with the oh-so-glam kate spade new york entertaining collection is—to us—the perfect recipe to host your next OR your first porch sitting party.

Another fabulous recipe that adds to the equation: the adult Mojito Poptail Recipe

1 1/4 cup white or light rum

1/2 cup simple syrup

3/4 cup club soda (flattened)

10-20 fresh mint leaves

1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice

Bring your alcohol to boil and let simmer for approximately 2 minutes until the liquid is reduced to about 1 cup and remove from heat. Mix the rum, simple syrup, mint leaves, club soda and lime juice into a bowl and muddle well. Pour into a popsicle mold like our Star Popsicle Molds (set of 4). Add a fresh mint leaf and cover with the cap. Freeze for 2-3 hours. Courtesy of wearenotmartha
