There are two more day left in my 30 Days to Summer Entertaining series, and to help celebrate all of YOU for participating and leaving your lovely comments, I’m giving away a signed copy of my book, The Reluctant Entertainer, and a beautiful Hip Hostess apron.
An easy way to celebrate summer and friends is to put a bowl of fresh fruit out on the table.
A centerpiece or casual appetizer.
It’s tasty and fresh.
Today summer entertaining is about enjoying the strawberries from my garden, cooking and inviting others over to celebrate friendships.
They can be so sweet!
