With summer coming to a quick close, it's only appropriate to appreciate the things that came with us to beach days, kept us company on airplanes, and are preparing us for the school days ahead. That's right, books. Whether you were submerged in romance novels or were drowning in AP pre-readings, there's a good chance we all read at least one book this summer. And what better time to celebrate our love for books than Book Lovers Day (August 9th)?
To show our appreciation for books, we're playing a quick game with our Original/Vintage, Mini, and XL Symbol Packs. Can you guess the book name by these few symbols? (Don't worry, we're keeping it simple!)
Let's check your answers! From top to bottom:
Do you have any other great symbol combinations? We'd love to see them! Tag us on Instagram and you might even see your photo in our next newsletter or blog.
Summer is in full swing, which means we're planning cookouts, barbecues and backyard hangouts galore. You know we're all about the aesthetics, so we've compiled the ultimate list of party essentials to really transform your outdoor space. Your guests won't be able to resist the urge to post your event on Instagram.
Step 1: Fairy lights, obviously.
When the sun sets, you'll need something to really bring your party from day to night. Nothing sets the mood more than some twinkly string lights.
Step 2: An epic drink station.
We all know this usually ends up being the focal point of the party, create something inviting and exciting for your guests (young and old) to indulge in.
Step 3: Grub
It's all about the presentation. You don't need anything fancy, finger foods and barbecue eats are the best backyard treats.
Step 4: Games!
Your guests will only want to mingle amongst themselves for so long, games will keep them entertained for hours.
Step 5: Party decor.
Now for the piece de'reistance, these items will add a personal touch and really make your event special.
Where did we get these ideas? Pinterest of course! You can find them all (and more) on our Cookouts & Barbecues board here. Be sure to follow us, as we're posting inspiration everyday!
