I made this delicious Strawberry Iced Tea with Milo’s Unsweet Tea, fresh strawberries, mint and Meyer lemons. It literally takes minutes to make and will look amazing on your summer holiday party table! Spike it up with vodka for a refreshing cocktail.
All Natural Award Winning Iced Tea
Milo’s iced tea is so good! It’s an all natural award winning tea fresh brewed from real tea leaves. My kids are starting to ask for sweet tea, so I love the fact that Milo’s tea is sweetened with a clean ingredient list of pure cane sugar and no preservatives or added acids. It’s an ideal drink for the summer holidays!
Milo’s famous sweet tea recipe is the same recipe that was brewed by Milo back in 1946! Being able to buy the gallon jugs makes this Strawberry Iced Tea recipe so easy to make. Using it saves you time not having to brew your own tea.
I really like buying this tea because, not only do they use all-natural ingredients, but Milo’s Tea Company is a family, women-owned business. Founded by Milo Carlton in 1946 as a restaurant in Birmingham, Alabama, his tea recipe became so popular that buy 1989 the family started selling it by the gallon. The company is now run by Milo Carlton’s granddaughter.
Easy Strawberry Iced Tea Summer Party Drink
Look at how gorgeous this Strawberry Tea looks served in a clear glass pitcher! I whipped up this summer party tray in minutes and you can too!
Best of all, this drink is made by the pitcher which means no mixing individual drinks and more time for you to enjoy a Milo’s moment with friends and family.
Where to Find Milo’s Famous Tea
I get Milo’s tea at Walmart or Market Street in the refrigerated juice section. It’s also available in sweet or no calorie sweetened with sucralose. Click Here to find a store with Milo’s near you.
I hope you enjoy this easy drink recipe and have many Milo’s moments with family and friends this summer!

An Herb Fairy Garden is a fun container garden for your kitchen! This easy tutorial for how to make a mini fairy garden for your home is such a cute kids craft idea.
An Herb Fairy Garden is a fun edible garden for your kitchen!
Get your kids excited about planting flowers or growing their own fruits and veggies by welcoming the summer fairies with a Kitchen Herb Fairy Garden. We love all things fairy and this simple herb fairy garden was the perfect addition to my new kitchen.
Do you think about the soil you use for your flower pots or garden? Well, you should. I am partnering with Ecoscraps today and love their story!
Ecoscraps was created by people who saw a better way to make soil, better for our gardens and better for our planet. Ecoscraps collects food waste from grocery stores and composts the waste into natural and organic garden soils and plant foods. Since 2011, Ecoscraps has diverted more than 75 million pounds of food waste from the landfill. How cool is that?
They believe bad food that is transformed into rich, organic soils and plant foods can do a lot of good for families and our environment.
I love using Ecoscraps and excited to share my Kitchen Herb Fairy Garden tutorial and a Target gift card giveaway today!
Making a Kitchen Herb Fairy Garden is a wonderful activity to do with your kids this summer!
You can make your fairy garden with flowers, but for ours we chose herbs that we can use in recipes. A fairy garden can be for the outdoors or indoors, in a fancy flower pot or a simple box. The ideas are endless!
How to Make a Kitchen Herb Fairy Garden
This tutorial for making a fairy garden for your kitchen is super easy and hopefully brings you some magical inspiration for a fun craft to do with your family or friends!
1. Decide on a Fairy Garden Theme
First of all, you want to decide on your fairy garden theme. Be sure to get the kids involved with this process. Shopping for fairy garden accessories is half of the fun!
Will it be a magical garden with a little house and swing set to welcome fairies each night? Or will you decide on a theme based on your favorite hobbies, toys, time period or animals?
I love chickens, so had to add a cute chicken coop to ours!
Here are some fun fairy garden theme ideas to get you started:
- Log Cabin
- Medieval Times
2. Choose Your Container
Since our herb fairy garden was for our kitchen, I chose a galvanized container that matched my kitchen decor. You can put a fairy garden in just about any kind of container, you don’t need to limit yourself to the usual terracotta flower pot.
3. Choose the Herbs
Think about what herbs you would use the most. I love adding fresh mint to my drinks, so mint was definitely on my list of herbs to buy. Because I make a lot of pasta dishes, oregano and basil were on my list as well. If you have a larger container, add some colorful flowering plants as well.
4. Choose the Soil
When growing any kind of food, such as herbs, it’s best to use organic potting soil such as Ecoscraps, which can be found at Target.
5. Design Your Fairy Garden
Now that you have your accessories, container, herbs and soil, you are ready to start designing your magical fairy garden!
If using a container with no drain like I did, protect it by lining the container with plastic. Then add some rocks to the bottom before adding the soil. This will help the water drain and not drown your plants if you over-water them.
Fill your container with potting soil and add your favorite plants and flowers making sure to think of the scene you want to create as you plant. Add various heights and take note to leave space for plant growth.
Before planting herbs, loosen the soil at the bottom so the roots are exposed to the soil.
Moss, pebbles and twinkling lights are great to have when creating a magical fairy garden.
Place near a window and enjoy!
Didn’t this turn out adorable? It was so easy and fun to make. We are looking forward to fairies coming to visit!
I hope you got some magical inspiration with this fun Kitchen Herb Fairy Garden. Enter to win a $50 Target Gift card so you can make your own Fairy Garden.
Be sure to get a few bags of Ecoscraps the next time you shop at Target! Watch this video to learn more about these organic soil.
