Do you have any plans for the 4th of July? We’re prepping for a team pie party (stay tuned for the full details!). We’re already anticipating the leftovers so we decided to send everyone home with a cute pie box favor. We did a version for Thanksgiving but the summer months need their own! You have a choice between a fourth of July phrase or just a summer phrase. You choose! Read on →
Is there anything better than an ice cream cone on a hot summer’s day? Cold cream dripping down your hand as you try to lick up all the goodness before it melts away. Mmmm. Personally, I’m a mint chocolate chip fan, but Oreo, cake batter, and peppermint are all close seconds. I try not to discriminate. To make your ice cream experience even better this summer, we’ve created some printable ice cream cone wrappers inspired by our favorite Mara Hoffman patterns (see below)! These are perfect for any gathering where ice cream is involved. I think I might even need to plan an entire party around the ice cream cones themselves! Create an ice cream bar with the cones wrapped in their printable wrappers, supply a million toppings and ice cream flavors, and let the guests go to town! I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!

Hello readers! Have you enjoyed In The Company of Women? From the comments we’ve received on @larsbookclub, many of these women entrepreneurs and makers inspire you! Tell us why!

Picnic season has officially arrived and with 4th of July festivities right around the corner, we want to make sure you’re prepared! Outdoor eating means ditching the dishes in replace of paper goods. Maybe it’s just me, but I have a hard time finding holiday appropriate paper goods that aren’t tacky. This is a problem especially when I don’t plan ahead and buy some online. Summer is all about the last minute get together! We want to ensure that you have some festive paper goods to use at your next event that aren’t the least bit cheesy! Details matter, remember? These printable hot dog trays don a freshened up color palette perfect for the 4th of July. Load them up with hot dogs and burgers, s’mores supplies, popcorn, and whatever other goodies you want! Potato chips and hot dogs have never looked so good! And neither have balloon hot dogs 😉
Every month, in addition to our featured book, we feature an illustrator who creates an original print with a quote from the book and a bookmark, free to download. I was excited for this month’s book, about an English couple’s move to Denmark, because I would get to choose a Danish illustrator. Sabine Brandt, of Sister Brandt, was one of the first Danish graphic artists I ever came across and I was so thrilled when she said yes!
Have you enjoyed The Year of Living Danishly? Would you ever make a big transition like this couple and live somewhere new for a year? (Sounds wonderful to me, actually…) Here are a couple of questions and some further reading suggestions for you. Feel free to continue to read along with us, and share your thoughts! Comment on our daily Instagram posts @larsbookclub, which continually highlight a section or quote from the book, along with sharing a lovely picture of Denmark (there are too many to share, really)!
