Eco Chic: 4th of July Brunch with Sangria

4th of July is one of my favorite holidays! Fireworks, yummy food and time well spent with friends and family.  Over the weekend, I tested out some ideas for the quickly approaching 4th of July Holiday,- this Wednesday!  (not a public holiday here in Cayman).  So here are the goodies I came up with…. 1. Eco Chic Table Decor Every now and then it is nice to incorporate fresh flowers into your brunches, lunches, and dinner parties.  In the picture above are some fresh coral pink and white roses perfect trending summer colors!  The great thing about choosing roses is that later the roses can be repurposed to make potpourri and/or rosewater. 2. Sunday Brunch Sangria This was my first time making Sangria and thankfully it turned out pretty good.
