Easy Outdoor Summer Party Ideas

I love summer parties! This weekend I got to throw one, and I have to say, summer parties are my favorite. It's the casual, easy feel of eating outside, the delicious summer fruits and vegetables, the long days and warm nights, and even the flip flops (and yes, I wore them)...

We invited over some old family friends and their children, and thanks to Pier 1, I got to really style it up (I call my theme "colorful boho"). I also used our new free retro summer printables to help set a playful mood!

{RECIPE} Tasty and Refreshing Granita for Summer

by Jillian Leslie on

It's been hot hot hot here in Palo Alto, so I wanted to come up with a recipe that would be cool and delicious. That's why I excitedly created these strawberry and orange granitas.

For those of you who don't know, granita is an Italian dessert that's a cross between a snow cone and sorbet. It's sweet and icy, simple to make, and the key to getting the texture just right is to mix it every twenty minutes with a whisk while it's freezing in the freezer. Plus, I added a little champagne to each flavor to give them both a nice zing.
