Straws // c/o Coasters // c/o Dessert Recipe Cards

So with summer unofficially starting {officially June 21st} it’s time to break out some summery sweet treats! These citrus cookies are basically summer in cookie form 🙂 filled with lemon, lime, and orange zest they have a refreshing sweet and tangy taste. Fresh out of the oven they’re soft and the perfect amount of chewy! I’ve never really been one to like fruit desserts unless chocolate is also involved but I honestly couldn’t stop eating these cookies. This weekend Joshua and I tried them out with some of our favorite summer beverages – Joshua is an Arnold Palmer kinda guy which definitely paired perfectly with the citrus flavor.

On another note how cute are these coasters? Matrick and Eve has some of the cutest stationery, greeting cards, party decor, and more including these adorable dessert recipe cards as well. I absolutely love their witty sayings and colorful backgrounds. They’re tabletop decor is sure to add a splash of excitement to your table this summer season!
