reason to celebrate | easy summer dinner invites


I spotted this photo over the weekend and found it such an inspiring piece for a summer eve’s dinner. Make it work for your next porch party by simply photographing a few of the fresh ingredients you will be using and scribbling a quick note onto the back with the place and time that you will be serving. Your guests will salivate over the gorgeously fresh invite.

    I love this idea! You could even include dried herbs themselves! Or fresh, depending on how far the invites had to travel.
