A New Way to Ice Cube

It’s hot and you deserve a cold drink. The problem? Plain ice cubes are so 2014. This year it’s all about the fruit cubes. (Remember our watermelon ice recipe? Life changing.) These berry wonderful cubes can be made with your favorite fruit, but we thought it would be a crime not to make them red, white, and blue just in time for The Fourth.

Red, White, and Pizza

If you didn’t think pizza could be your next go-to food for your Fourth of July BBQ, think again. This version has everything that makes pizza great—an entire bag of cheese, golden crust, and bacon—and nothing that makes pizza awful (which is nothing). Even better: It looks like an American Flag. God bless America, indeed.

Build Your Own Mimosa Bar

Make a Simple Party Sandwich Spread

If there’s one thing we like about graduation parties (well, any party for that matter) is that there’s a good chance there will be a full spread of sandwiches, dips, and probably a cold beer or two. And good thing, too, because there’s nothing like a good ‘ol sandwich to bring distant relatives and school chums together. And just think—the better the spread, the more $$ your grad might get. Double win!

Mexican Fruit Cups

There’s a reason why spicy and sweet go together like…spicy and sweet. “Ensalada de Frutas con Chile”—or fruit salad with chili—is the perfect combo of both. Better yet, you can sub in your favorite fruits and add a sprinkle of salt for an unexpected snack. It’s flavorful, juicy, and the ideal pre-drink snack on Cinco de Mayo. It doesn’t hurt that it’s bright and cheery, too.

How to Build a Dessert Table at Home

Don’t mind us, we’ll just be in the corner ooing and aahing over this gorgeous dessert table. I mean, really, it’s almost too pretty to eat. Almost. And while we think this pretty setup is great as a new Mother’s Day classic (goodbye, boring breakfast in bed!), but can work for brunches, showers, and basically any time you want to entertain with a whole lot of the sweets.
