Our Castle is gorgeous all year round, but during the summer, we Thrive!

We compiled a quick list of what summer here at the Castle means to us, and at the risk of getting some Julie Andrews stuck in your head, these are a few of our favorite things! 

(We’ll refrain from mentioning kitten whiskers and schnitzel, but we’ve got plenty of girls in white dresses.) 



Long Days followed by Stunning Sunsets

Summer is endless daylight, sunkissed skin, and sunsets that take our breath away. We love the way the mountains behind us glow during the golden hour; every stone becomes alight with orange and pink. Amanda Brown Photography knows how easy it is to snag that radiant light and work it to her advantage!



Blue Jean Babes!

We’re big fans of a classic jean jacket, but add a little custom flair, and you’ve got us hooked! These turned out so cute, and now each girl can rock this timeless accessory at any occasion.

Stellar Shades

Everybody looks a little cooler with a sweet set of sunglasses on. It wouldn’t truly be summer without them! We’ve seen some couples customize these for their guests as their wedding favor, and it can make a group look sharp!

Flower Crowns

Just look at this gorgeous Fower-Child hair! Between the lace dress, the perfect messy braid, and the simple yet stunning flower crown, we can’t think of a better example of summer-spirit come to life.

Vibrant Colors

Summer is all about lush, vivid colors! Florals like this remind us of juicy ripe fruits and festivals, and we love the energy it gives to a table.

Sweet and Savory

Summer has us craving something a little sweet, a little spicy, and reminds us of Mom’s cooking. These Chicken and Waffle Bites from Personal Touch Dining hit the spot! Who could resist these poppable morsels?

While we’re on the topic of food, Summer wouldn’t be complete without a BBQ! Burgers, hot dogs, lemonade, and potato salad always accentuate the perfect summer day. These Short Rib Sliders from Personal Touch Dining are topped with BBQ Sauce and a little Feta Cheese for a fun twist on a savory classic.

Sneaking off to Play in the Open Fields

Isn’t there something magical and nostalgic about running through a field of waist-high grass? It brings you back to Summers as a kid when everything was simpler, and the world still held wonder.

Lawn Games with Grass Between Your Toes!

We offer so many fun lawn games here at the Castle! From Giant Jenga, Corn Hole, Giant Connect Four, and Croquette we’ve got lawn games covered. If you think of something we should add to our collection, just let us know!

What does Summer mean to you? We’d love to hear about it!
