July 4th party ideas

July 1, 2014

It’s gonna be a good month, you guys. We can feel it. As much as we love mega-events (we are wedding people, after all), we have to admit that hosting a relaxed, laid-back party for a holiday like the 4th of July can be super fun too. With a little outfit planning, DIY decor, and sweet treats, we’re ready to show our spirit. Our tips? Mix and match red, white, and blue fashion to create a star-spangled ensemble, and add a little glitter for good measure.

Then, turn your backyard or little corner of the beach into a mingling spot for friends + fam with the help of streamer decor made from crepe paper + string lights.
