Our Quick & Easy End of Summer Patio Party

Our Quick & Easy End of Summer Patio Party

Summer is coming to an end, boo! And as much as I've been trying to resist the transition into Fall, school for my kiddos starts next week, so there's no denying it any longer. Double boo! But to lessen the blow, and make sure we still make the most of the hot days - yes, it's still 40 deg C in the shade 'round these parts; we celebrated last weekend with an end of summer patio party !  It's our way to enjoy the fine produce on offer at the end of season, and relax before the school routine finally kicks in.

Watermelon & Rosé Granita Cocktail

Watermelon & Rosé Granita Cocktail

Watermelon rhyme with summer, right?! But so does a chilled Rosé wine. So I thought, why not combine the two for a tasty and easy to make semi-frozen granita (or slushie) cocktail?! So that's what I did! And now do, most times when I'm hosting a get-together or summer party. Mainly because this watermelon and rosé wine cocktail is super refreshing for hot summer days, but also fun and mega simple to make. And can we take a sec to appreciate how pretty it also looks?! Win-win! 😊

Styling a Smoothie Bar for Summer

Styling a Smoothie Bar for Summer

Summer is the perfect season to try and eat healthier. With an abundance of fresh produce in season, summer's when I create lighter and fresher meals at home. One of my favorite quick snacks/drinks to serve my family is a smoothie. We love it for breakfast, we love it in a bowl, we love it as a tasty treat... So I got thinking it would be so fun to set up a smoothie bar for a party! Such a refreshing idea for a bridal or baby shower, summer brunch or any summer celebration!
