A backyard Fourth of July party!

A backyard Fourth of July party!

Hey friends! I'm always a fan of getting loved ones together to celebrate life & America and I can't believe the Fourth of July is only one month away. I thought I'd share our backyard celebration from last year which included a variety of last minute DIY ideas. If you're like me and this holiday sneaks up on you, I hope you'll find some ideas from this post that you can include this year if you're hosting a get together.

A Kentucky Derby Celebration!

Every year I look forward to the Kentucky Derby and all of the amazing hospitality and fashion that comes along with it. While I wish I was able to bedazzle a fancy hat and hit the stands in person, a dinner party at home was the next best thing. If traveling to the derby in person wasn't in your plans either, I hope you'll enjoy some of the ideas I incorporated into our fete and can even keep them in mind for next year!
