Victoria Hudgins of A Subtle Revelry has teamed up with Pledge for a series of creative videos. Each video highlights a different DIY project or craft activity. If you are familiar with her blog, you know that Victoria is a pro at making things beautiful. In the video series, Victoria shows how summer entertaining can be easy with creative DIY projects and crafts, also using Pledge Multi-Surface Cleaner to make cleanup a breeze. I love this video where Victoria creates a beautiful yet simple floral centerpiece.
Aren’t you feeling inspired after watching that video? I know I’ll be keeping a bottle of Pledge handy at all times this summer, after seeing how simple that cleanup was.
Some of my favorite ways to make summer entertaining easy:
Host a backyard BBQ.
Make it fun and festive with bright colors.
Illuminate the party area with candles and hanging lights for the perfect atmosphere during evening gatherings.
Add a twist to a classic recipe.
Plan dishes that can be prepared a day ahead.
Decorate with fresh flowers, like Victoria did in the video.
Get the kids to help clean up.
Are you feeling inspired to do some summer entertaining?

We love to cook out at our house during the summer. Anytime I can get my husband and kids to cook I am all in!
These are great tips, we love family get togethers in the backyard especially when they are barbecues. Love using creative lighting too!

I can’t tell you how much I love pledge. It’s truly the only thing that keeps the dust from forming back so quickly.
Summer is so great for entertaing out of doors. Longer days, great weather and the kids are off from school so even a midweek party isn’t out of the question!
The only parties I’m having this summer are birthday parties. My little guy is turning 6 next month, and has requested a Super Hero Party. My daughter is turning-gasp- THIRTEEN and wants a sleepover, and my husband’s birthday is August 18th. Lots of parties, lots of planning to do!
Cannot wait to see pics from that super hero party!
I love to entertain but it seems like I have been so busy lately! Hopefully I can have a few gettogethers this summer.
We’re moving in about 40 days to a house with a HUGE deck and backyard, I can’t wait to get to know our neighbors and others in our community so we can entertain out there!
That sounds fabulous, Tammy. I’m sure you will really enjoy that for summer entertaining.
We plan to do quite a bit of summer entertaining before the baby comes in August. We have a huge backyard and it would be a shame not to use it.

I hope to do more DIY projects this summer with my family. Great ideas.
I love Pledge 😉 I bet the multi-surface cleaner would be perfect for all my different areas.
