Monochromatic Monday :: Strawberry Shortcake

Strawberry Shortcake-Red-White-Inspiration Board-Camille-Styles

Every summer when I was growing up, my mother would take us to a nearby strawberry field where we would spend a blissful afternoon picking (and eating!) our weight in the juiciest fruit. Over the next few days, those berries would take many forms: jars of vibrant jam for gift-giving, sliced & served over yogurt, & (my favorite) layered between buttery shortcakes & whipped cream. For me, that very dessert epitomizes the start of summer, and its colors are the inspiration for this warm-weather party. Playful straws striped in red & white, pots overflowing with geraniums, & cupcakes crowned in meringue are festive details for a birthday party or bridal shower. Spread the Love by sending guests home with homemade jars of jam to enjoy at next day’s breakfast.
