Memorial Day party: eat

So, um, how did Memorial Day sneak up on us so fast? Weren’t we just complaining about how cold it is? And now we’re only a little over a week away from the unofficial kick off to summer. I’m not sure I’m prepared.

In my little world, the best way to get myself prepared is drowning myself in pretty pictures and party planning inspiration. Plus, it’s way more fun to throw a cyber party than spending endless hours cleaning the house and handcrafting adorable table decor that no one else will notice (not to say that I don’t do that sometimes too 😉 ). So, let’s party!
