Happy Independence Day!  Below are 5 ways to help you celebrate in style..

Red, White & Blue salad - Watermelon, Feta cheese and Blueberry combined with red wine or balsamic vinegar and a dash of salt and pepper makes a refreshing side dish.  It's a unique alternative to the strawberry/blueberry/whipped cream flag desert from your mum's favorite magazine circa 1993.  Serve in a clear bowl so the bright mix of colors brightens your table.

As for sartorial gear this holiday we suggest choosing either red or blue but not both.  A white linen pant with a red tank or a blue printed dress will be stylish and festive!
