Everyone loves a summer party, right? Sitting on the porch as the sun goes down, sipping a cold drink with friends, and staying up too late because you’re having too much fun. Yup, that’s what I love about summer. So I came up with a few tips to make those summer get-togethers even easier!
We don’t drink juice much in our house because there is so much sugar even in natural fruit juice, but I LOVE infused water. Plus, it’s so easy to make. I fill a pitcher with water, add slices of lemons and oranges and top with fresh mint from my herb garden. Then, I let it sit for about an hour in the fridge before serving. So yummy and fresh!
Citrus & Mint Infused Water
- 1 orange sliced
- 1 lemon sliced
- fresh mint leaves

I also love to use my pretty vintage blue Ball mason jars at parties, and they’re always a big hit!
Washi Tape Name Markers
I will admit, sometimes I use the plastic Solo cups at summer parties because it’s so easy to add your name with a Sharpie marker, but it’s not very pretty to look at. So, instead, I like to add washi tape to straws and let people write their name on the tape. Easy + cheap + pretty = WIN!
Finally, I wanted to give you something to remember me by – a FREE summer printable! Everyone loves printables, me included, because all I have to do is print it off and add it to an old frame. Suddenly the party looks a little more trendy and planned even though it took next to no effort! YAY!
