Five Favorite Pins: Wimbledon

True, one might say it's just a tiny bit traitorous, but now that the Fourth festivities are over, we're heading across the pond to partake in a little sporting event called Wimbledon. That is, we're doing so on Pinterest at least.

Wimbledon—the oldest tennis tournament in the world and dating back to 1877 —is deeply rooted in tradition. The attire must be white; the court must be green (Wimbledon is the only Major still played on grass); and there must be strawberries. Seriously: strawberries and cream along with the refreshing Pimm’s #1 cup cocktail are the official snack and drink of the matches. So while we love a good tailgate with burgers and beer, you've got to admit, the Brits' way is a rather brilliant way to spend a summer afternoon.
