Summer Patio Party


to set a summer table:

My theme for this party was the 4th of July. I used red, white, &blue melamine dishes, galvanized chargers, and plaid napkins.

Instead of using napkin rings I tied the silverware with a patriotic ribbon!

fresh flowers

My casual centerpieces.  I cut fresh garden roses and used vintage Ball  jars.

perfect summer drink

A pretty beverage idea that is family-friendly!  Make a batch of lemonade, put it in a clear pitcher...then add jarred cherries and pour in some of the juice to create the layered effect.

An inexpensive idea! Hang a set of patriotic paper fans on your door or wall for a festive look!

a few coastal touches

 I added wood buoys and scattered sand dollars and starfish on the table runner along with rattan stars

The table is set and ready for our guests.

party time!
