Cheers to the 4th!

All the Inspo you need

From assembling a simple and cute outfit, to getting your hands on a great hostess gift, to a few simple recipes if you’re hosting yourself, here are a few guide points to make your 4th a perfect one. Ray Bans, espadrilles, denim, red lipstick, summer prints and

gold hoops are a good bible to get you started. You can just add a white tank top and head to your poolside BBQ.

If you’re attending a party, no stress in the gifting department. There’s always orchids, but there’s also beautifully wrapped soaps, copper pineapples (for decor or cocktails!), cool Rosenthal vases, cocktail books, and round, colorful beach towels.

And if you’re cooking…go for a bright and beautiful Italian salad that’s filled with artichokes, olives, salami, mozzarella and more, like this one from Foodie Crush. Looking for a dip? Avocado hummus, like this one from How Sweet Eats is essentially the only one you need. Then there’s this chopped Greek Salad from Pinch of Yum, because it’s a no brainer crowd-pleaser, which happens to be extremely simple to make.

Need a refreshing cocktail? Opt for a grapefruit cardamom gin fizz, like this one from The Modern Proper.

Other than that, Happy almost 4th of July! Enjoy the long weekend, if you have one 🙂
