Cold Brew Ice Tea

We simply fill our 4-cup bottle with cold water, add a tea bag, and put it in the fridge overnight. By the time we get thirsty the next day, the tea is ready. When using loose-leaf tea, Bill Waddington of TeaSource suggests using two large tablespoons of tea per quart of water, and then letting the mixture steep at least 8 hours.

And last, but not least, the table setting! This is the most important piece of your entertaining puzzle because the table setting is what people remember most. Besides serving amazing food, a beautifully designed table will be the topic of conversation long after the party is over!

In the spirit of summer, we recommend a table that is full of color! We’re loving this table from Burnett’s Boards.
