We hope you all had a great weekend – or are still getting to enjoy it! We’ve been donning our red, white, and blue outfits, whipping up patriotic recipes, and can’t wait to celebrate the 4th of July tomorrow! Who’s with us?! If you aren’t yet in the mood, this vintage Americana front porch party will do the trick! We wish we could transport ourselves to this deck right now, dive into those french fries, and sip on that ice cold iced tea as we sit on the front porch swing. Ah, how idyllic. We know you’ll love it as much as we do, and hopefully gain some last minute inspiration for your own celebration!
Summer is the perfect setting for an outdoor gathering. With the lush green and floral backdrop, it creates a naturally picturesque scene needing only a handful of accents peppered throughout to complete the set for any occasion. For this family front porch gathering, inspired by vintage charm accents and a BBQ menu, it gave space for time together to relax, refresh and rejuvenate.
Creating an easy menu allows for everyone to contribute while still presenting a beautiful meal. This eclectic blend of details includes mix and match vintage finds such as the dining chairs, repurposed patterned papers, glassware and containers for serving food in a way that offers interest with beauty. Building a tablescape with cherished and favorite pieces creates a space that has your guests feeling right at home.
Simple décor can go a long way. With summer offering a vast supply of natural finds, we pulled from our woods for the delicate white florals sprinkled over the table in quiet glass jars. Effortless yet refined, these collected gems can be seen across the spread. Fruit and herb flavored summer drinks are simple to make, yet so enticing to your guests with their refreshing look and taste. These tastes of homemade recipes bring a sense of familiarity and create a space to come together.
