{Real Parties} July Fourth Gathering

Time has really flown by this year! I can't believe we will be celebrating another holiday this weekend. July 4th is less than a week away, but you still have time to organize a fun get together with friends. Here is stylish, yet simple way to spruce up your party space!

Laura of Live Smile Celebrate created a quaint setting and what I love most about the party is that she pulled items from around her home to be used for decor. I love repurposing items from home!

Laura purchased the Stars & Stripes collection by Shindig Parties for only $9!! This is a printable file, so you still have plenty of time. Target was her next go to source where she picked up lanterns and a few other decorative items.

The red table from IKEA was perfect for this party. The printables by Shindig really made the table pop!

The food table eld a lot of yummy items including pulled pork, corn on the cob, cucumber salad, mac n' cheese on mini spoons, pasta salad, parfaits, cupcakes and more!

I always try to send guests home with a favor, even if the event is small. At this party, Laura sent guests home with gumballs in a pint size dispenser. Adorable!

I can't wait to see the parties you al create this weekend and on Monday! Happy July Fourth!
