Whew! What a great weekend. Exhausted.
Emily from Magnolia Creative and I worked on a Budget Friendly Patriotic Themed Party. We started off with an idea of using a more muted, classic American theme. Then Emily designed the amazing printables and we were off. Dollar store finds, previously purchased items and a lot of baking
This party could be used for Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, a Welcome Home party (close to my heart), or a few minor changes and you have a baseball party! .
I took the pictures, but Emily is editing them. So in the mean time - here are my NOT so professional photos of the party.
The apples for the garland were half off at Hobby lobby, soI just threaded some twine through and added ribbon accents to the end.
The white tableware, I already owned. As well as the Dollar tree sink shelves that I sprayed white and use for almost EVERYTHING now.
I also already had the burlap table runner - which you will almost always see on my tablescapes. Clean, simple.
For drinks we had Pellegrino, cane cola and lemonade.
Thank you to ALL the men and women who sacrifice precious time with their own families, so that they can protect ALL families. I love you Major Chandler.
