NEW YORK, May 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Just in time for summer, style expert and coffee lover Tim Gunn teams up with Nespresso to combine their preference for design, quality and style to offer tasteful tips for fashioning a spring and summer soiree.  With the arrival of longer days and warmer nights, there are plenty of reasons to enjoy the outdoors and spend time with family and friends.  Whether it's celebrating graduations, a simple brunch or a more elegant dinner party, hosting an unforgettable affair can be both easy and sophisticated.

Nespresso offers innovative machines that are a stylish way to serve delicious Espressos, Lattes or Cappuccinos with the touch of a button.  The 16 Grand Cru coffees will delight all guests – from those who prefer bold, intense flavors to guests who enjoy a lighter brew.   Served hot or iced, or even as a cocktail, Nespresso coffee can turn any gathering into a more sophisticated occasion.

"From selecting colorful decor to designing a menu to delight your guests, the key to a terrific event, is quality, taste and style, which I try to incorporate into all details, from what I wear to how I design the space to the coffee I drink and serve my guests," said Tim Gunn.  "Nespresso offers only the highest quality coffee and their coffee capsules and machines come in a variety of vibrant colors perfect for the summer season – adding style, sophistication and great taste to any celebration." 

When planning your upcoming party, don't forget Tim Gunn's tips for entertaining:

  • Simply adding a bright tablecloth and a colorful bouquet of fresh flowers can really spruce up a table, but you can take it one step further by adding your own personal touch to the decor. Create a fun place setting or add a statement center piece to bring it to the next level. 
  • Ignite your guest's senses with a delicious Nespresso coffee beverage.  Whether it's a hot cappuccino or an iced latte, Nespresso has a Grand Cru coffee to suit every preference and their machines look great on your kitchen table or patio. You can pair these recipes with a tasty appetizer or dessert to really sweeten the menu.  For a variety of hot and cold coffee recipes to serve at an upcoming party, go to:
  • No summer party is complete without the flawless outfit and that doesn't necessarily mean you need to go out and purchase a new wardrobe to make it work.  Mix and match bold staples from your existing wardrobe to tie the look together – just don't forget comfortable shoes and a transitional jacket or lightweight scarf in case it gets chilly.
