Happy Memorial Day! How are you celebrating this important day?
However you're spending today - honoring friends and family members, attending a Memorial Day parade or BBQ - we hope at least part of your day off involves being outside (pray for nice weather!), so below are some great ideas for outdoor entertaining.
Shaded String Lights how-to.
Vellum shields how-to.
Nautical themed garland how-to.
These quick party tricks add something special (and pretty!) to your outdoor fete:
Athena's flower straws are the perfect accessory for your summer drink.
Great trick with cupcake papers for keeping bugs away!
Silke's mats are great for outdoor tables.
So are her dyed cups and bowls - I'd love a scoop of ice cream in mine...
