Let the celebration begin!! Are you all stocked up and ready for the 4th of July? I set up a table with some fun kids stuff (big kids too!) that I received from Oriental Trading. Have you checked them out? The Oriental Trading Company is a direct merchant of value-priced party supplies, arts and crafts, toys and novelties and school supplies. It’s a great place to order all you party needs and, should I say, school supplies. Nope, it’s too early for that!

I love decorating this picket table my husband and I made. It’s the perfect spot for a snack or beverage table. I decided to mix a little Americana and Nautical together.
I thought these Mini Stars and Stripes Bubble Bottles looked like fun! It helps keep the kids entertained until the fireworks start. The Rustic 4th Napkins look great with all the other accessories. Do you notice the Cotton Plant Garland? I know it might seem a little out of place for 4th of July, but the valley I live in grows a lot of the U.S.’s fruits and vegetables, and cotton. So this is just a little nod to my community!
I placed the bubbles on one of the trays. By turning it upside down, it makes a great spot and makes them easier to see.
I love these Patriotic Yard Bursts! I placed them inside a couple of bottles I got from Hobby Lobby. They make quite the statement!
The Nautical Fabric Pennant Banner is my favorite. It looks like it belongs on a sailboat somewhere. I like the solids and stripes and it’s even on twine! It goes well with my Wooden American Flag. I will be posting the DIY for the flag next week.
The Patriotic Food Trays are the perfect size for a bunch of cookies, or chips or any other snack. I added these cute little Shining Sea Pinwheels too. They would look really nice in a plate of cupcakes.
Flag Tootsie Rolls anyone? I probably shouldn’t have ordered these. I will probably eat them all myself! The little cups are the perfect size to hold your goodies in ( I ordered the cups from Oriental Trading too, but I don’t see that they are available anymore).
I’m all ready! Now it’s just waiting for the celebration! Happy 4th!
