Set a ca­sual tone for a South­ern Soirée like Carla Hall’s with ban­danas ($3 each, ban­danas.net) as nap­kins. Serve glasses of your fa­vorite iced tea on a rus­tic-chic gal­va­nized me­tal tray ($15, world­mar­ket.com).

If you’re throw­ing Michael Sy­mon’s Cleve­land-Style Clam­bake, stock up on

dis­pos­able lob­ster bibs ($2 for four,

bedbathandbeyond.com).

This oil­cloth table­cloth ($60, mex­i­can­sug­arskull. com) is sim­i­lar to the ones

Mario Batali uses for his Michigan Beach Party. The row­boat-shaped serv­ing bowl with oar pad­dles ($65, un­com­mon­goods.com) rounds out

the fish-camp theme.

Tiki torches ($30 for four, tik­i­brand.com) are a fes­tive sum­mer­time clas­sic for a ca­sual Jersey Shore Pic­nic à la Daphne Oz.

Want to party like Clin­ton Kelly? A glit­ter­ing disco ball ($45, ama­zon.com) sets the tone in­stantly. And noth­ing says the ’70s like fon­due served up in this sleek stain­less-steel

fon­due pot

($29, wal­mart.com).
