We all love the 4th of July…a  three day weekend, spending time with family and friends, laid back BBQ’s, scrumptious food, topped off with a display of fireworks.

Whether your 4th of July gathering is big or small here are a few suggestions that are easy to throw together – even for the last minute planner.

Loving this display of crepe paper streamers for the porch or patio. This is a simple and easy way to create a focal point in an outdoor space. Not only is it adorable but the string lighting also provides functionality for when the sun goes down.


No table is complete without a tablescape. Here are a few accessories that will help make your table shine.

Mason Jar Vases //Daisy Cut Lids//Starburst Drink Stirrers//Silverware Packets//Silver Straws//Indoor/Outdoor Pillows


As charming as the rest of your decorations are, what truly brings people together is the food. Here are a few ways to incorporate the food into the theme.

Red, White & Blueberry Shortcake//Burger Baskets//Ice Cubes

Now that we are all officially in Red, White & Blue overload…Happy 4th of July!


Despite the fact that we have already been feeling the heat for the past few weeks, at least here in New York….Summer is officially here!

This year we are kicking off the start of summer with an ice cream and waffle dessert table inspiration shoot.
While shopping at a Goodwill store I came across a waffle edged plate with sprinkles and a cherry on top. I thought this would make a cute dessert stand so after purchasing a few other items I had the tools to create the dessert stand. Basing my inspiration around that, other DIY’s included…ice cream bowls transformed with the help of Wilton’s Candy Melts…handcrafted ice cream cone stands…and cupcake cones. What better way to kick off summer than with ice cream and waffles!
