Avocado Tortellini Salad with Fresh Vegetables + Garden Sage

One of my favorite early–June blooms is garden sage. Her grey-green, fuzzy, oblong leaves and woody stems stand two-feet tall with lavender-colored flowers that the resident bees just loooove. If you fancy yourself an edible garden, sage is a pretty perennial “subshrub” I’d highly recommend.
With sage blooms come all the feels of summer. Independence Day is just around the bend and, girl, you know the gatherings are soon to roll in—picnics, potlucks and barbecues, OH MY!
What shall you bring?! Look no more. This avocado tortellini salad with fresh vegetables and garden sage is as fresh as it is filling and sure to be a crowd pleaser.

Modern Wood Slatted Outdoor Privacy Screen: Details On How To Build

Hi there friends! Last summer I shared the reveal on our modern wood slatted outdoor privacy screen. Since then I have had tons of questions about it, so I thought it was time to share some details on how to build it.

Plus, it has a clean & simple aesthetic which I think compliments my style.

Sweet + Simple Spring Tablescape

I am so happy to be back at City Farmhouse today sharing a sweet spring post with you. My name is Alicia, and I blog alongside my husband, Nick, at A Burst of Beautiful. If you aren’t familiar with our blog you may remember we visited Jen last year to share our Cozy Neutral Farmhouse Tour with you. Looking back at that post today, I can’t believe how many changes our home has undergone since then. It doesn’t even look like the same house, what do you think (you can take a peek at our latest home tour here: kitchen, mudroom, living room and dining room)?

Summer Picnic-A Creative Space For Outdoor Entertaining

Picnics aren’t just for the beach or park anymore, they are also a fun way to create a whole new space for outdoor entertaining in your very own backyard. I am so thrilled to be partnering with Wayfair to bring you this creative summer idea. Whether you have a small yard or a large one, this is a great way to break up conversation areas and add a stylish element to your party. I happen to have a small yard, so this idea of creating a whole other outdoor room for hosting has always intrigued me.
