Wedding Invite Wording

Wedding Invite Wording

When searching for wedding invites, I think it is very important to pick the correct wording. I broke this down into two camps: Traditional and Modern. The Knot has a ton of articles that will break down all the different situations you could encounter when designing your wedding suite.

Traditional.

4th of July Recipe Ideas

Needing an Idea for a dish to bring to your 4th of July party? I’ve rounded up a few ideas for you to try:

1 – Pecan Pie Tart // 2 – Watermelon Salad // 3 – Firework Cookies // 4 – Salted Brown Butter Crispy Treats
  1. Pecan Pie Tarts – This is my all time favorite dish to bring to parties. They are super easy to make and a hit. Test them out and let me know what you think.
  2. Watermelon Salad – Are you feeling like you should be healthy to offset all the beer you’re going to drink?? Try this watermelon, mint and feta salad.
  3. Firework Cookies – I love a good sugar cookie. If you’re short on time, you can always get sugar break and bakes while using Martha’s guide to decorate as a Firework.
  4. Salted Brown Butter Crispy Treats – I’ve heard amazing things about these guys. Rice Crispy Treats are great for all ages, but the Salted Brown Butter adds an adult flare.

What is your favorite dish to make?
