Design The Essentials:

Festive 4th of July

America sure knows how to celebrate. On Independence Day we have the works — fireworks, that is, but also backyard barbecues, picnics, park or beach excursions, and lawn games. It’s a time when friends and family come out in full force, and it’s easily one of our favorite days of the summer. To help prepare for July 4th and all the warm-weather get-togethers to in the months to come, we rounded up a few favorite patriotic red, white, and blue pieces. From a portable grill to impossibly chic disposable plates to breezy, all-white summer attire, here are all the makings of a stylish summer bash. Happy birthday, America!
