You know what happens….you go on Pinterest and five hours later you have gone so far down the rabbit hole and pinned just shy of fifty-thousand party ideas. After you’ve recovered from your “Pin-crazy haze’ you set out to planned the most amazing party ever. Something that you could hire a professional photographer for and build your blog around. I mean, I know I’ve been there. But before the days of Pinterest I was a party planner at heart. Real parties, where things are fun, coordinate, and maybe a couple things with a little flare but you had fun. Your ideas came to you, and you figured it out. Nowadays I think people get caught up in the Pinterest craze and drive themselves crazy, setting unrealistic expectations for themselves and don’t enjoy the fun of the crafting! So I found some really fun pins that are don’t have a ton of drama in the creation, but give you a great pay-off! And its perfect for last minute party preppers like myself.

2. Patriotic Printables – So many good, free printables out there. I usually print one or two out for holidays on regular printer paper and stick them in one of the frames I already have up in my home. It just shakes things up and adds a pop of something with very little work. You could really do it up and have it printed out somewhere on cardstock, or even as a picture.
5. The Concrete Cottage Blog for the win!! Patriotic Lawn Stars – Okay, so this has been all over Pinterest this year and I absolutely love it!! As long as you’re okay with having to wait until you mow your lawn for them to come out then go for it! It’s so fun and adds a super unique touch to your party or your patriotic day. This would also be amazing for a homecoming!!!
