Memorial Day Soirée

It’s time guys. Summer is here and the parties are starting. We’ve been leading up to Memorial Day for a few weeks here on WGC and today it’s the cherry on top! A few incredible recipes that you can make and take to any party and be the star of the show!

This year I’m teaming up with Anthropologie to put together the most epic Memorial Day spread you’ll ever see. The menu was simple but perfect, the setting couldn’t have been more beautiful and I’m officially obsessed with everything about this story. I want to live in Anthropologie and I need to figure out a way to make it happen. Or at least re-do my living room with all these gorgeous pops of color.

As usual I teamed up with my most favorite photographer Matt to capture all the beauty that was happening. Adam, the food stylist of my dreams, made sure all my recipes were gorgeously plated and styled. Amy rocked the set with all props from Anthropologie and NAILED IT!! Ugh, you guys are going to freak for the pics. One of my favorite friends from college, Marissa from Blonde Buds, did the flowers and I created all the recipes which I then demolished until I needed a nap 🙂 Can someone teach me how to show some self control when it comes to ice cream sandwiches?

Sparkling Raspberry Lemonade
Summer Cheese Board
Grilled Chicken Panzanella
Salted Dark Chocolate Cookies Ice Cream Sandwiches

If anyone buys the poufs, can you invite me over so I can sit on them forever and ever? And that rug. Dying. They are both speaking my language!!

    Gaby, this is amazing! Also, slightly(!) unrelated to food, but what lipstick are you wearing? I’m obsessed.

    Oh my gosh I so want to live in Anthropologie too!!! I’m habitually filling my online cart with everything I want from there and then abandoning it 80% of the time. But that green tray is coming home to me! Loved watching you, Matt, and Adam snap the shoot.
