We are smack dab in the middle of the summer with the heat waves and the every day thunderstorm chance.  I hope you are finding ways to keep cool so that you can enjoy the summer.  Last week’s Happiness is Homemade Link Party was amazing and the features that our host, Susan, has chosen definitely speaks summer and fun! Let’s get on with the party and her fabulous features.

 I hope you had a great 4th of July if you are here in the USA. We had a lot of fun with our communities annual Parade and Festival. With the holiday being on a Wednesday, we here are all confused feeling like Thursday was another Monday. But it is so much fun to have another weekend after the 4th to spend with family. A perfect weekend for more picnics, barbeques, and patriotic kids activities.

So happy we are full swing into Summer! ~Susan @craftingafamily.com

On with this week’s features!

Happiness is Homemade Link Party Features

For every summer picnic, you always have a bunch of condiments that clutter up the table and never look nice. What a great idea from Live Craft Love to make your table beautiful.  BBQ Condiment Bar for Summer Parties.

Macaroni Salad is a picnic basic and I love the added creaminess of this Cheddar version. It looks amazing.  Kim from Cozi Nest has a roundup of 4 versions of Macaroni Salad.  The one featured here is from Jo-Anna at A Pretty Life.

You will fall in love with the Summer Patio Outdoor Beverage Cart and put this on your list of projects for next summer. The design from Jen at Clean & Scentsible will make any outdoor space a vacation.

There is nothing better than a casserole for your picnic. One dish that you can make ahead and reheat for your family get together. Check out Culinary Envy’s Pepperoni Pizza Chicken Bake recipe.
