Citrus & Mint Infused Water plus Free Printable


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


1. Fill a pitcher with water, add slices of lemons and oranges and top with fresh mint from my herb garden. Let it sit for about an hour in the fridge before serving. Enjoy!

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!


Free Summer Printable

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!
