3 Looks for a Summer Wedding

It seems not too long ago when I shared three looks to wear to a spring wedding. But that season has come and gone so quickly, and summer is upon us. And it is the biggest season of the year for weddings, so chances are you have a few invites and may be wondering what to wear. It's pretty easy to figure out summer wedding attire if you keep the location in mind.

Of course you have the invite to start with as well. It should say "Black Tie Attire" or "Black Tie Optional" or perhaps something like "Formal Beach Attire," and it will have the ceremony time. Generally indoor evening weddings call for more formal attire than outdoor afternoon weddings.

For an indoor wedding, no matter what time of year, you can never go wrong with a Black Formal Dresses. An elegant knee-length cocktail dress, like this FAIRY COUPLE Women's Off the Shoulder Lace Vintage Wedding Party Cocktail Dress is perfect for a black-tie optional indoor wedding, while a sleeveless o…

DIY Citrus Ice Cream Bowls


These adorable lemon bowls turn an easy summer dessert into super chic party food. All you need are a few knives and a melon baller or spoon to create these single-serve cups. I love the yellow contrasting with the raspberry sorbet. Though they don't make for the biggest ice cream bowls. If you want larger ones, you could of course use oranges or grapefruits using the same technique.


Step 1: Wash the lemons and slice each one in half. Cut off a small slice on each end so the cups will stand up straight. One bag of lemons is plenty, as one whole lemon produces 2 cups.

Step 2: Use a pairing knife to cut around the inside edge to break up the membrane. This makes it so much easier to clean out the pulp. I found that my bird's beak pairing knife was perfect for the job, but you can use any small sharp knife.

Step: Use a melon baller or spoon to scoop out the pulp and seeds. Don't cut all the way down to the pit on the bottom, because you might end up making a hole in the bottom, though you do need to get as much of the pulp out as possible and make sure the inside is thoroughly dry before you add the ice cream. If you don't, you'll wind up with a watery mess.

Step 3: Just before serving, spoon a scoop into each lemon cup and serve with a small ice cream spoon. Enjoy!
