Patriotic Party and More!

by Jillian Leslie on

This week my favorite parties include: a red, white, and blue patriotic party, an enchanting fairy garden birthday, a wild jungle safari party, and a Little Red Riding Hood birthday party! | CatchMyParty.com

There were lots of fantastic parties added to our site this week, including an outdoor patriotic party perfect for Memorial Day or July 4th (both of which will be here before we know it)! I'm a big fan of adding a tent or teepee as party decor, and I love the homemade tent at this party!

I'm nursing a cold today. My nose is running. I have a pile of balled up Kleenex sitting next to me as I write this. But sharing gorgeous parties does lift my mood. Beauty has a way of helping me get out of my own way. So thank you, to all the creative people who add parties to our site.  You are the best medicine.

Red, White & Blue Pretzel Rods

Red, white, and blue pretzel rods, a perfect treat for your July 4th parties! | CatchMyParty.com

When I think of July 4th, I think about being a kid and heading to the Jersey Shore with my family. I grew up in NJ but we didn't go "down the shore" often, maybe once a summer. It was special.

I loved the Jersey Shore, it felt so alive. It wasn't snooty, like other east coast beaches. It was tacky, with lots of people with bad hair and bad accents, and yes, I was one of them. (But I only discovered that years later when I moved away.)
