Summer Cookout with Beatriz Ball

Happy summer, friends!! {Or almost summer to us here in the northeast} Y’all know I enjoy sharing recipes and putting a healthier spin on things, but I also LOVE to set the table and have dinner parties! It’s probably the southerner in me, but even in our small, one-bedroom NYC apartment, I try to host and set the table whenever I can. It honestly brings me joy!

Living in NYC has been an adjustment, for sure. Even after 3 years, I still miss things from home in Alabama and one of those things is cooking out. We don’t have backyards in the city, or even front yards for that matter, but we DO have rooftops! Daniel recently bought a {tiny, rooftop-sized} grill for us to use on the roof and we have had several cookouts already. When Beatriz Ball reached out to partner with me, I was first thrilled because I already use and love their pieces!! And second, I thought a summer grill out would be so fun with their collection.  I just love how their pieces can be used for a nice dinner party or to add some elegance to an outdoor BBQ!! I think this mix of nice and casual is perfect for the season! Not to mention, I’m obsessed with lemon patterns right now so I’m looking for any excuse to use this tablecloth  🙂 Take a look…
