Here's some lovely red-white-and-blue inspiration from Social Couture, via Hostess with the Mostess blog. Social Couture offers a whole party package where you can purchase everything you see here. It may be a bit late in the game for that now, but I still find lots of DIY inspiration in just looking at the photos. You can find little flags like this at The Dollar Tree (if they're not sold out by now, that is!)
This is Kim's inspiration board from Head of the Table. She put together lots of fabulous links to various projects from good old Martha. (You know, Stewart? She and I are pretty tight - we're on first-name basis.)
Many thanks to these entertaining women for their inspiration this week. BBQ...fireworks...good friends...good food...good company...here we come!
