Stylish Fourth of July Party |  by Ricki Weiner |  www.smittenmagazine.com Holidays are a great time to get together with friends and family, but you don’t need to store a box marked “Fourth of July” all year to have a patriotic party.  Ricki Weiner has a great take on making a festive summer, “The celebratory feeling of the 4th of July doesn’t need to be limited to one day.  To give one of our favorite holidays an all-summer-long-feel, we’re showing you what to wear, how to decorate and what to serve in moments that can be enjoyed throughout this sunny season.”  Heather Kinkel‘s light filled photography captured all the great ideas.  Pull together items from around your home in red, white, and blue with a few easy accents like the dip-dyed tassels.  The great wall hanging by wildwood + firth is lovely all year round making for a sensible, and super fun, purchase.

More insight from Ricki, “I love making pieces that you can keep on using during the season!  Dip dyed tassels are pretty, simple to make and can continue to be apart of happy table settings.  Our sailboats got a little dip dye love as well.  The driftwood pieces are perfect for a beachy vignette, barcart or as a centerpiece that complements The 4th celebrations while showing off your crafty skills.”
