The Fourth of July is a time for entertaining friends and family, eating fabulous food and celebrating our fine country’s independence! With all of the sparklers and overdone flag-patterned tablecloths out there, we decided to bring some much-needed chic and subtle charm to a holiday worth celebrating right. We partnered up with the talented team at Engaging Invites and our favorite party planner, Colin Cowie, to bring you this gorgeous Liberty Luncheon inspired by the chic small-town charm of Bedford, NY. The event was flawlessly captured by Tatiana Valerie of Artvesta Studio. Prepare to start pinning!
If this table wasn’t welcoming enough, Engaging Invites crafted video invitations to welcome each guest to the luncheon. Now that’s personalization.
It wasn’t difficult to find china and flatware worth registering for at Alchemy Fine Home. The patterned blue and white chargers paired with red goblets completed this festive look!
Is a summer luncheon really complete without sprawling floral centerpieces? Um, of course not! Bright yellow tansies flawlessly complimented red, white and blue flowers to create the most gorgeous bouquet thanks to our friends at Sprig & Social.
International beverage experts, The Grand Bevy, showed up to let us in on their signature cocktail for the Fourth: The Hibiscus Cooler. Don’t worry; we won’t keep the recipe a secret. Enjoy! 1.5 oz Rye Whiskey | 2 oz Hibiscus Tea | .5 Fresh Lemon Juice | .5 Blueberry syrup | 6 Blueberries (muddled) | Fresh Tarragon | Fresh Mint
Have you ever seen such gorgeous cupcakes? New York’s own Cream Blossoms was the obvious choice for our charming luncheon. Get this: they don’t just look amazing—they’re DELICIOUS!
