4TH OF JULY AND BIRTHDAY PICNIC PARTY IDEAS

Who doesn’t love red and white checkered gingham at any outdoor birthday party or at a 4th of July celebration? It’s easy enough to add a little blue into your Independence Day party or barbecue with a picnic theme too!  This theme is so versatile for any outdoor event.  Let’s get to some great picnic styled party tables –

This creative combination of polka dots and gingham at this Teddy Bears Picnic party is so on the spot! How easy is that to pull off too- they ran a few yards of cut red gingham fabric vertically over the white tablecloth for the food table.  The added height in the back is a great idea too.  Get all your gingham party decorations at The Party Fetti Shop!

This picnic party features fun coordinating pinwheels – perfect for outdoors in the sunshine!

That tissue tassel garland swaying in the breeze are perfect for an outdoor table backdrop.

This gazebo features red white and blue hanging fans and fans are always an easy way to decorate at any picnic party or 4th of July party.  They can be hung anywhere or layered on a wall behind a food table.

Memorial Day Celebration

MEMORIAL DAY CELEBRATION

dsc_5328-1

Memorial Day weekend is coming. Many will be traveling, enjoying the beginning of summer, taking a mini vacation, and spending time with family over the holiday.  This is always a holiday for gathering together and enjoying our friends and family but let’s not forget why we celebrate this holiday.  Memorial Day honors men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971.

So be sure to remember our fallen soldiers over the coming weekend for their ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

This weekend I will be honoring many Army soldiers at an event at Fort Riley but I am happy to announce that my husband will actually be returning home from his second and final active duty tour with the Army.  I will be spending a few days with him this week at Fort Riley where we will celebrate his 24 year service with the military and his retirement.  I will be so happy to have him home permanently.  It’s been a long five years without him, during his Army Jag training and then two tours almost back to back.  He has served his country dutifully and now he will return home safely.

Army Jag Ceremony

So because I will be spending time with my Army solider and taking a mini vacation of my own, I will have a week or so of no posts here on the blog. So I will leave you with some red, white and blue barbecue and Memorial Day decorating inspiration until I return.  These are all perfect set ups for the coming 4th of July holiday as well.

All my Etsy shops below are still open as well, but please note that I will not return or be shipping anything until Wednesday, June 1st, 2016.
