I'm totally loving the aqua and red color scheme! Of course, the "team usa" on my magnetic banner will be switched out to say "summer" once the forth is over.
My lantern is the perfect summer accessory. Combine that with the slat star and its a fun and festive duo. Then to balance out the red, I jumped on the wooden fire cracker bandwagon. Aren't they cute?!
They were fun and easy to make too! I'm sure its fairly self explanatory and there are several around blogland, but I'll post a quick tutorial on my fire crackers tomorrow.
I also added some red ribbon to my candles.
Throw in some foliage and you have a fun, festive, summer vignette!
As always I'm linking to these great parties and events:
