july 4th: lauren conrad style

Lauren Conrad seems to be everywhere these days sharing 
her fun party tips, decorating ideas and fashions. 
I just got this month’s redbook magazine, and just absolutely love
 all her 4th of July party ideas for setting a cute table and serving the 
perfect foods. She also shares some fun tips in Us Magazine this month.     
Lauren anchors her tablescape with a red and white gingham runner, 
uses simple dishes and wraps the utensils in red, blue & turquoise bandanas.  
The turquoise is an unexpected pop of color that I love! 
Tall delphiniums give that wild flower look and finish off the table.
Watermelon is a must for the 4th of July, 
and why not spritz a little lemon on top?  It’s super yummy! 
A variety of fruity cocktails will please guests.
A simple idea like a DIY hot dog bar 
can be taken up a notch when the ingredients
 include a variety of gourmet mustards, relishes and ketchup options.  
Fresh ingredients are delicious too.  
Think heirloom tomatoes, a mix of shallots and scallions, 
chopped avocado and pico de gallo.  
For dessert, cool everyone’s palate 
with homemade Arnold Palmer popsicles!

ciao! fabiana
