Hey y’all! We are Bonnie and Trish from Uncommon Designs where you can always find us up to something crafty. This is our favorite time of the year and we are just thrilled to be sharing some of our favorite ways to celebrate Summer with you today!
We just adore entertaining friends and family outside during these warm Summer months. Creating the perfect atmosphere for our guests is always a priority, but we try to keep things pretty simple. Our beach inspired tablescape is one example of how you can add a few simple elements like starfish, shells and burlap to really transform your table!
We also love to add a little vintage vibe to our gatherings. Do you remember the rattan glasses from the seventies. Well, we made our own rattan beverage coozies with a little textured ribbon!
Need a little something to fill up those cute glasses? Well you can find out how to make the perfect glass of iced tea with our Southern Girl’s Guide to Sweet Tea. After all, it would be a shame for you not to learn how from two ladies who have been brewing it up for decades, right y’all?
If tea isn’t your thing, you may enjoy some flavored water recipes. It is a delicious way to stay cool on these hot days. It also is pretty which is a total score in our book.
Need a go-to dip recipe for Summer? You will love our pimiento cheese. It has been a family favorite for years and we know you will love it too. It also tastes great in a sandwich, on top of hamburgers, or even on top of steaks!
Speaking of family favorites, how about a super easy recipe for peach cobbler? No one will ever guess how simple it was to make… it is that delicious!
One last thing to remember as we celebrate Summer… bring on the fun! We have lots of great ideas for backyard games for the entire family. From cornhole to classic games, everyone will have something to keep them entertained!
