Happy 4th of July weekend, y’all! I hope you are filling your time with lots of fun, family, friends and fantastic food! Haha, it’s time to make some memories and traditions come alive as we celebrate our independence! My fam-bam is packing plenty of activities and gatherings on just about everyday…it has been so much fun!
With celebrations that run 3 days long, it is important to get creative so you don’t blow up your budget along with the fireworks! With a few touches that feel patriotic, you will keep things festive while keeping the price tag down. Besides, who wouldn’t want to use their $$ on good cuts of meat for the BBQ or some margarita fixins’?? So, Sam and I figured, why not throw something together for a little inspiration for all you Zesters? Besides, it was time for lunch and my kiddos love the fun of a picnic!!
Honestly, we lucked out when we found these great yard lanterns at the 99C Store. Yeah, they weren’t a $1, but they were hecka cheap….so we couldn’t pass them up!
blankets & pillows
99C Store findings: mini flags, poppers, lanterns, candles, tissue paper, you name it!
<<The pallets we picked up locally for a free table setting! You can’t beat free, and the store was happy to not have to deal with them anymore. A win-win, I think.>>
Basically, ransack your cupboards for anything red, white or blue! We used our red napkins, blue glasses, white plates, and colored straws. Mix in some flag magic and viola! A casual, patriotic little gathering!
Haha, Maya and baby Barley had to join in the action, too!
Oh, Barley! Ummmm, when you are a puppy, you are always invited to the party!!
Popper fun and a little snuggle time, the makings for a fabulous little picnic!
