Jolly Recipe for your 4th of July!

Hello My Lovelies!  It is just days away from the Celebration of our Independence…4th of July and we could not be any more excited because we have SO many parties to go to (and of course host)!  Yippee!  You know us (at least we hope you do or hope we get to know you soon) and in knowing us you know that we LOVE to create experiences!  We are the first ones to put up our hands up to host a party and say “YES” to everything!  Due to our overwhelming ability to pack our days with endless excitement we need simplicity in our recipes!  Now most of the time, we say “let’s hire a caterer” however when it comes to 4th of Jolly (our little party name), we feel that a created recipe straight from our little home is in order!  Today we share with you one of our favorites!  Watermelon Refreshers!  This little gem of a recipe came from a dear friend who inspired us and after simplifying it a little bit (because we’re all about simplicity) …it’s still so yummy!  There is not one person we know that does not salivate at the thought of watermelon on a hot summer’s day…so, why not spice it up a little bit and make the watermelon a little bedazzled?!  Let’s leave an impression!  Here you are!  Enjoy!
