Fourth of July Party Tip List

I shared detailed tips here last week from my 4th of July shoot with Toujours Magazine and have a few more tips and sources to share. As you prepare for your 4th of July festivities keep in mind some of these tips to make your patriotic bash extra special for your guests. Check out the full Toujours Magazine article here for more patriotic party ideas. Enjoy!

1. Skip the boring white napkins and clear glass and instead pull out your colorful glassware for your signature drink. Find similar blue glasses at Anthropologie. Stop by your local party store and pick up fun red white and blue napkins. I found these cuties at Party City.

2. Whether you are having a sit down dinner or a buffet, mix in woven table runners or place mats along with your colorful table linens to add texture for creating a rich layered table. You can find these textured treasures at Pottery Barn and Ikea.

3.  Simple white flowers sparkle in red or blue vases. This vintage blue glass vase was an eye catcher with the fluffy white peonies. West Elm has a blue hexagon vase available that would also work. If you only have white or clear vases, choose bright red and blue flowers so that the table has a powerful punch.

Happy 4th of July!! Check out more 4th of July inspirations on my Pinterest page.
