First Day of Summer Party

I can’t believe the first day of summer is this Friday! To celebrate, I thought it would be fun to throw a special party – complete with themed invitations, colorful decorations, infused lemonade, mix and match popsicles, and fun gift bags. All week, I’ll be sharing the DIYs for each of these elements so that you can throw a similar summertime soiree. When it came to decorating the food table, we kept things simple: a few expandable honeycombs and a striped green tablecloth set the mood. (PS – My favorite summertime party treat.)

    I can’t believe you’re about to spend summer while I just said goodbye to mine. Nevertheless, I’m still excited to see your DIYs on this lovely season…

    SO pretty and festive! But how do you keep the popsicles from melting right away if it’s super hot outside? Have any good ideas?
