Happy Summer Solstice!
Now it's officially time for lemonade and shades, beaches and road trips. So why not throw yourself a little party to celebrate?
There is a lot of history behind the solstice, many reasons why people have celebrated over the centuries. Maybe you're even into the faeries that come out and whatnot. But for me, I just find that it's a good reason to be happy for the sunshine. It's a specific day when I can say "Hey, summer--you're awesome." Even though I live summer all year round, I'll be having a delightful time tonight with a few fizzy drinks, twinkly lights and some grilled veggies.
Try champagne over popsicles!
You'll need a few fun straws for your bubbly drinks
Decorate with flowers and candles--hanging from wherever you can put them!
One should always have a fruit trifle in the summer.
Caprese salad is a perfect addition to any warm weather meal
Mushrooms make an excellent substitute for a meaty burger
