1. Host a Fourth of July Picnic

    For this Fourth of July, what better way to celebrate with your family than filling up a picnic basket with your favorite snacks, grabbing a plush blanket, and heading to the park. Little Reese and I packed up our Bambeco Eco Picnic Basket with Pellegrino, Organic Gruyere Cheese, and Trader Joe’s Bread sticks, so we could spend the afternoon munching and sunning in Madison Square Park.

    Nothing screams summer more than seashells, so put those shells you picked up on the beach to good use in substitute of a table runner! Here’s what I used to put this summer time table together.
