Party Recap

Monday, May 23, 2011Budget Friendly Patriotic Party
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! .
Originally we discussed covering the entire table with a white cloth - but that would have hidden the charm of the table. The flags were left over from my Husband's return home from Baghdad (told you this was extra special to me). A few $1 tins from Hobby Lobby, some sand and the flowers from our daughters' recital.
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.

I took the pictures, but Emily is editing them. So in the mean time - here are my NOT so professional photos of the party.

It was so much fun to work with Emily - and I can't wait to reuse this again and again.
