Weekly Link Party #357

Weekly link party #357 - coastal beach decor with blue oyster shell garland, buffalo chicken pasta salad, key lime lush dessert and diy seashorse napkin rings

Welcome to this week’s Weekly link party #357.

We lucked out with nice weather this past weekend and the rain held out for our little guy’s birthday party. But man, it has been coming down in buckets ever since!

I’ve been enjoying a simple and slow tomato girl summer. Have you heard of this new vibe yet? Last year was the summer of the Coastal Grandmother and this summer apparently it’s Tomato Girl Season. I’m sharing all about the lifestyle in this post here.

This past week I got together with 13 other bloggers to share some summer tray decor inspiration. I shared my Coastal Beachy Tray since I’m craving the ocean. You can see all my tray details and everyone’s summer tray decor ideas here.
