I usually post some fun red, white and blue food items to make for the 4th, but instead let's address what you might want to wear tomorrow night! Since it's so last minute I'm giving you really easy ideas. I'm thinking you might already have items similar to these in your closet.

Have a safe and fun 4th!

Nothing says USA like blue denim. Just adding a denim vest to a cute dress like this immediately gives off the 4th vibes. Photo source.

Bring on the feeling of good ol' fashioned American nostalgia to celebrate America's birthday. Coincidentally my daughter is planning on wearing her Coca Cola tee tomorrow night. Photo source.

I bet you have something red in your closet! Better than just a T-shirt, this adorable off the shoulder top looks great with a pair of denim shorts. It's easy and fits right in. Photo source.

They're reminiscent of the flag and they certainly don't have to be red. This dress below is only $19 and makes such a statement! Photo source.

Adorable woodland creatures gathered round to help welcome this family's newest little one. With the help of Fairy Godmother Wedding & Event Company, this mama-to-be pulled off the cutest decor. The shower featured fresh flowers cut from her mother's garden and bird seed party favors to encourage guests to give back to nature. She even designed and made all the signs and paper products herself. The gift tent and waffle bar are two of my favorite features. Big thanks to Alexis Nelson Photography for capturing the cute details and sharing them with us!

I can not believe how fast the days are going by! I just assumed with school out our days would be working on a slower pace, but that has not been the case. One big thing that happened was that my twin girls turned 12 last week. Officially tweens–and maybe the calm before the storm?! It's sad my girls no longer want the themed home parties. So, we let them each invite two friends for a day at Waterworld. Their friends slept over the night before and of course I needed to get some party decor into the night. The adorable party plates and table cover came from Walmart and I used Waterworld's sun logo as the cupcake toppers.
The top of the pineapple made a cute adornment for the cupcake display.
 The popcorn was covered with yellow candy melt, and was delicious!
By the way, swedish fish DO NOT float. Not sure how people are getting those shots on Pinterest. LOL

This wedding made me realize how much I appreciate the simple task of putting pen to paper–especially in this digital age. This couple did it in two places: on some of their signage integrated into their decor and asking guests to leave their wishes on kraft paper. And let's talk about that! What a great keepsake for the couple. This idea could easily apply to a graduation or retirement party. So fun and personal. Thanks to Indiana photographer, Victoria Rayburn Photography, for sharing the photos and ideas!

If my daughter Siena were getting married tomorrow, I feel this would very much be what she'd want! In fact, she bought one of the plant holders used in this shoot for her room recently. I just love the pop of yellow the lemons give the decor against the darker floral shades. The hint of pale pink is soft and romantic, trickling through the desserts. "We used lemons for the splash of yellow and its light and refreshing feeling complimenting it with chiffon because of its elegance and diaphanous quality," explained Dennis of Toronto's Motion D. Photography, who was kind enough to share the photos with us. Simply stunning!
