Happy Holiday Weekend Y’all! Hope you have something fab in store for the following few days. Sarah has her darling sister and fabulous Aunt in town and they will be painting the town red all weekend. I am THRILLED to have almost no plans this weekend save for a mellow BBQ on Sunday.

These homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches were a big hit at last year’s July 4th BBQ, they offered the perfect retro chic Americana vibe.

Definitely planning to go the Farmer’s Market on Saturday to get a supplies for my famous Watermelon Margaritas to bring to the festivities on Sunday. Wish I had a big drink dispenser like this one from Napa Style to serve them in…

Run a piece of turquoise fabric (any turquoise scarves lying around?) down your table and stud it with fresh ruby cherry tomatoes still on the vine or baskets of ripe strawberries and cherries. Edible, compostable table decor!
