What will you be doing this 4th of July weekend? Right about now everything on the list sounds like a good time – day up in wine country, trip to the beach, getaway to Tahoe. While we’re planning to hang pretty low with le bebe this year, that certainly doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate. The 4th is one of our fave holidays because it really is all about good food, friends and wine. In SF the weather has finally turned a corner – hello, summer, is that you? – and we can’t think of a better way to spend the day than gathering a group of friends for a weekend of outdoor entertaining!
After seeing these pics from the super-sweet Seattle-based photographer, Charles Redding, it’s clear that our ideal, low-key celebration needs to involve lots of rosé, small bites and laughter!
We plan to take advantage of the long weekend by spending lots of it in the kitchen checking off recipes from our never-ending Pinterest boards. A quick trip to the farmer’s market in the morning will yield everything we need for this Fig and Melon salad. It looks so yummy and is perfectly refreshing for the heat. We also really want to flex our muscle with this Strawberry and Blueberry Tiramisu – because who doesn’t love a fun 4th-themed dessert?!
While I stir, whip and chop, I’ll be doing it super casual in some easy 4th inspired style. I’m thinking boyfriend denim shorts, a cute racerback tank and some metallic slip-ons – the perfect lady-with-a-baby weekend wear if you ask me! We may head to the park or hang out on the rooftop deck because let’s be honest, our backyard is far from looking anything like this. Either way, I love that this breezy outfit doesn’t restrict any on-the-fly fun idea from happening. It’s summer after all!
