To The Star Spangled Banner.

Now we know we are a couple seasons a head of ourselves with this one, but we were browsing over at Hostess With The Mostess and saw this one and wanted to share right away. Plus there is nothing like willing for the summer to come by planning your awesome parties now!!


Of course this party sticks to Red, White, and Blue. As well as Stars, Strips and anything nautical! The above place settings are paper napkins, paper plates and cute baking cups. Not only will there be little to no dishes to clean up but you can buy what you need and for the next party get new matching plates.


There are so many simple treats and decor in this party.


Look at these cute chip treat boxes, add our labels and I am in LOVE!


Where would one even start with this party? Popcorn? Place Settings?


Jumbo Gum Balls in this clear tubes with ribbon and stars on top make super cute favours. SImple, DIY, and Cheap. But finding only red, white and blue ones may take a little while.


And last but not least, every good party needs drinks! Even if it is as simple as soda pop adding a cute label would tie it into any theme. How about our beer labels?
