Party Planner: 4th of July

My favorite way to celebrate the 4th is to avoid the craziness of D.C. & instead to celebrate with friends at an all day cookout. This year things are a bit different since our friends who always host a 4th of July party had to cancel since their baby’s due date is on the 4th!

{Last year’s party, with the future mama in the middle. We suggested just moving the party to the hospital but that didn’t really fly with her!}

What I love about the 4th is the excuse to go all out in the decor, since hot July days are perfect for your basic cookout. To make your party a little more festive here are some great ideas for your tabletop & backyard.

What is everyone’s plans for the 4th?
