When I think of summer parties, I think of baby showers and bridal showers. Did you know that the most common month to have a baby is August and the most popular month to get married is June? Talk about busy times for hosting showers. I love to host baby and bridal showers.
However, summer can be a tricky time for getting all of the food together. You want to make sure all the foods are easy to eat with your fingers. And more importantly, nothing too messy. A bridal shower is not the time to serve hot wings and bean dip.
Lets start with the drinks. Always serve ice water with lemon. But after that it’s a great idea to have two other drink choices. If it is a bridal shower go for this awesome Sparkling Summer Sangria and pair it with the Sparkling Summer Lemonade. If it’s a baby shower, serve a brisk iced tea and the Sparkling Summer Lemonade.
