It's been a while since I've done a post! Hopefully it won't be as long until the next one. I have so many projects I want to get done around the house, but this summer has been crazy busy!
We had some good friends over for the 4th of July and a party isn't a party without a few decorations!
Here are some of the pics:
I purchased these stars last year from Michael's. They were ridiculously cheap - I think 80% off when I bought them. My favorite time to shop for seasonal decorations is after the holiday is over. You get such great deals! I use these for the 4th, and sometimes on our tree at Christmas!
I purchased a few mini Christmas ornaments from the dollar store. They were all 50% off. Such a steal! I knew I'd use these throughout the year for centerpieces.
I found this awesome printable at Landee See Landee Do. She has such cute ideas!! And what's more all American than chocolate chip cookies??? They're a staple in my family's diet! haha
I love these glass vases. I've seen them everywhere and decided I needed some of my own.
You can find super cheap glass vases and candlesticks. I think I paid .25 each for the candlesticks. I already had the vases lying around. Perfect!
To glue the vases I used premium waterproof silicon. This stuff is absolutely amazing! There is no getting these apart once their glued (trust me I tried!!). This is an absolute must when gluing glass! You can find it at any hardware store - usually in the plumbing section.
Here's a plain pic of the vases. Nothing too exciting here, just wanted you to see how I used a variety of candlesticks and vases that didn't necessarily match.
here! Such a cute idea and great to travel with!
We had such a fun 4th of July! Can't wait til next year!
