Hello, DEAR FRIENDS! Welcome to the fourth issue of the Manifesto Magalog! This edition marks Society Social’s 2 ND BIRTHDAY (in August to be exact!) and I couldn’t be more giddy and grateful to have the opportunity to bring you another round of my original designs, fresh decorating inspiration, and easy entertaining advice. We believe in all three for a happy home, after all! For those of you new to the show, this MANIFESTO MAGALOG went live for the first time in conjunction with the launch of Society Social, and again each time we have new products to show off, in hopes that you truly get to know Society Social for all that we stand for, a visual manifesto of sorts. I hope you step away inspired, knowing a little bit more about us­—a unique, privately designed home furnishings line and the small team you’ll hopefully know by face, name, and (colorful!) spirit. In this industry and fast growing e-commerce marketplace where you’re bound to find a lot of the same, I continuously strive to excite and delight you with fresh, new ideas. With that said, in this issue you’ll find FEET (yes, golden feet!), our signature fretwork freshened up, and flashes of fashion you might find in our stylish Social’s closet. You’ll also see we’ve expanded the color line and custom upholstery offerings to include in totality hundreds and hundreds of options that you won’t find anywhere else, options turned custom designs that are carefully made-to-order just for you. As always with a full heart, thank you so so much for making all of this possible— I hope to bring you much more (the next round of designs are close behind!) the next time we meet! HAPPY DECORATING! Warmly,

Roxy @societysocial #manifestomagalog

DECORATE WASHI TAPE TIPS For the commitment phobes and renters, a washi  tape gallery wall is a great trick. You can rearrange your prints with abandon, and without destroying your walls! If your art is very colorful, try using just one shade of washi tape to unify everything.  To make frame shapes, roughly measure out the lengths of tape for each beveled or inverted corner; but remember, part of the charm of the look is in its imperfection!

Colleen’s Multi-Purpose Celine Table NAME: Colleen Nathanson LABEL: There Comes A Yes LOCATION: Brooklyn, NY The Celine Nailhead Table

SHE DRINKS: The French 75 My workspace is just a wall in my bedroom, so I needed a shallow table that could fit in my narrow space. The Celine table works perfectly, giving me enough room for my computer and even a Wacom tablet! But small space living is all about versatile pieces, and my Celine does double duty as a drink station when I entertain larger groups. Just clear away the computer and desk accessories, and a mini bar awaits!

COLLEEN’S DECORATING TIPS No room or budget for a large floral arrangement? A trio of pretty blooms make a statement in a teensy vase! Goblets and glasses are great as impromptu (and small) vases too! Last minute birthday party and no decorations? Group inexpensive party favors for maximum impact, like colorful swizzle sticks in a champagne flute and streamers swirled in a fishbowl. Decorations, especially in a small space, don't have to be room-encompassing!

The

SOUTHERN SOCIETY SOCIAL HOSTESS This time of year is overflowing with social events! Between weddings, showers, and summertime parties I think even my calendar is ready for a vacation.  As the perpetual hostess, it’s nice to have a few go-to appetizers and cocktails that will keep the party hopping. These crispy polenta bites are so pretty and their delicate assembly add a certain amount of glamour to any party. I topped mine with cool cucumber and crunchy radish but any veggie will do. In the cocktails department, my cheeky peach lemonade is pretty enough to serve guilt-free at brunch but strong enough to kick it up a notch at cocktail hour. Now grab your favorite wedge sandals and a straw brim hat and let›s throw a summer soiree!

AARON’S EXPERT ENTERTAINING TIPS Treat your guests to a beautiful array of flowers. They razzle, they dazzle, and they’re the perfect way to add life and color. Pillows add instant coziness. Consider throwing a pillow with graphic appeal into the mix. It’s a great way to add visual interest and whimsy. Invite your guests to stay a while!
