entertaining inspiration and design

Independence Day is almost here and if you’re hosting a Fourth of July party here are a few styling ideas and tips to keep your party festive, without spending too much time prepping. After all, summer parties should be about relaxing and enjoying plenty of fun in the sun with friends and family!

Let the grill do the heavy lifting for the food items, and set-up decorative dessert display for all your sweets – plan to have sweet treats that can withstand the outdoors for a bit so you can set-up before guests arrive! If you’ve seen my other parties, you know I’m always a fan of tissue garland and love the raffia ties on the one shown below. And check out the crepe paper tassels…would be adorable centerpieces on top of the red + white gingham table runner (pssst…it’s recycled wrapping paper). And when it’s time for the fireworks show, how cute would be it be to set-out individual popcorn bags and some themed mason jar cups for guests to grab easily before the show? Resource links below, and my free Fourth of July printables are available here.
