Friday Happy Hour - Happy 4th of July!

Hello readers - happy Friday! Who's excited for a 3 day weekend??

We have a wedding this weekend so it's no vacay for us BUT we will be grilling to celebrate Independence Day and want to share some patriotic ways to decorate your own grilling parties.

Red, white, and blue can get really cheesy really quickly. If you're looking for a way to bring in the color palette yet host a stylish party think about breaking up the colors. Do somewhat of a monochromatic look. For example, do a white linen, blue containers, and red flowers. Your table now looks patriotic but still has some chicness. We put together a few small arrangements using glass blue containers and red zinnias. The result is not only perfect for a garden soiree but it also celebrates our country!

And remember that grilling and having a backyard party is usually a casual affair so keep the floral arrangements natural, loose, and fun! Enjoy family, friends, the weather, and celebrating our Independence!
