It’s sum­mer­time and the liv­ing is easy—es­pe­cially with these sum­mer party ideas from the Emmy Award-win­ning hosts of ABC’s The Chew, a pop­u­lar day­time cook­ing-themed talk show. We asked Mario Batali, Michael Sy­mon, Daphne Oz, Carla Hall and Clin­ton Kelly to cook up their dream sum­mer cel­e­bra­tion for you—

from food to tunes. Try out one, two—or all five. We prom­ise your friends will be daz­zled with what­ever

Chew- wor­thy bash you throw this sum­mer.

“Sum­mer re­minds me of fam­ily re­unions, get-to­geth­ers with f riends, be­ing out of school and liv­ing in Nashville,” says cook­book au­thor Hall, who was a

Top Chef fi­nal­ist. To cre­ate a party ta­ble that feels wel­com­ing and warm, she thows on a rus­tic printed table­cloth, loads up a gal­va­nized-steel tray with glasses of iced tea, serves baked beans in a cast-iron skil­let and coleslaw in a crock, fills crates with cook­ies, uses ban­danas for nap­kins and tucks wild­flow­ers into Ma­son jars wrapped with twine. She rounds out her South­ern Soirée theme with a sound­track of old-school R&B. “It ’s mu­sic that makes you feel like it ’s a lazy day.”
