Girls Dinner: Summer Tapas Party

Ampersand Design Studio

Along with Laura and Tobe, we've been waiting for the day to share this 2nd edition of our Girls Dinner series  because it's just the perfect summer get together and we're dying for you all to try it yourselves!! We always say we could make a dinner out of appetizers...so we practically did just that! We threw together a casual, tapas-style dinner on the back porch! We used a fun piece of vintage fabric for a tablecloth and mixed and matched patterns and materials to create a Mediterranean-inspired dinner al fresca!

Here are a few things we made if you want to try them:

• beet salad with goat cheese, mixed greens and walnuts

• pita with edamole (edamame guacamole)

• spicy lime shrimp (they only take about 10 minutes!)

• strawberry, basil and goat cheese mini-toasts

• red wine sangria with fresh fruit

You just might need to stop by Tobe's blog, Because It's Awesome for your very own free, printable recipe card!

If you have your eye on these darling wine glass markers, head on over to Laura's blog, A Girl Who Makes to get the full step-by-step DIY!
