Party In The USA!

Set the stage

Create an area for your friends and family to gather and socialize! You can set up a table and some cute chairs in your backyard or at a park! We love wicker chairs because they’re super summery and easy to move around. You can also find cute festive pillows at Target, Home Goods, and Bed, Bath & Beyond to make the area cozy! Your guests will feel right at home!

It’s all in the details

Grab some fresh flowers, a tablecloth, and silverware to create a festive look. We did blue and gold accents with the silverware and red cocktail napkins to add a fun pop of color! We love delicate and tasteful details, here we sprinkled red cherries on the table and tucked a thistle bulb in the center of the napkin tie ~ so cute!
