4th of July Party Decor | Paper Lanterns

Hotdog (and hamburgers)! It's once again time to start shopping for your Fourth of July party supplies!

As you can tell, we love to use paper lanterns to fill in the space and set the mood for the entire party.  In the photo we used these fabulous Americana lanterns although we just checked and there are only 2 left in stock (6.15.14).

Additionally, one of our go to paper lantern stores, aptly named, The Paper Lantern Store, is running a few great 4th of July promotions:

And we can't forget this  Patriotic Balloon Lantern – not only is it festive, it is very affordable at only $1.59 each! Patriotic Balloon Lantern

Adorable Cherry Print Aprons & Matching Kitchen Goodies

Adorable Cherry Print Aprons & Matching Kitchen Goodies

OMG – Look what we stumbled  upon – a Jessica Steele apron  with matching recipe book, oven mitts, dish towels and so much more!

We can easily envision this set inspiring an adorable What's Cooking bridal shower or birthday party. Or  bundle a few cherry goodies together to create the perfect present!

Another option is to work with the Jessie Steele Apron Audrey Cherry Cupcakes pattern.  It too offers coordinating everything and would also make an adorable children's party theme.
