Hip Hostess: Summer Rooftop Party

In the summertime, it’s all about being outside as much as possible—which is why we just adore the idea of a rooftop party. Whether you live in a building with a perfect rooftop or have a friend with access to one (who would also be happy to co-host), here are all the must-haves for this seasonal soirée.
