Hello Summer (Another Party)

This past weekend, Dream Bashes helped plan a Summer Kickoff party.  My client wanted to go with a traditional BBQ look, using red gingham as the start off point.  She didn't want patriotic per se, but something all-American.
I decided to go with a red, white, and aqua color scheme, using burlap as the table coverings to give a neutral background.  I hinted last week that I was going to be using some pinwheels, but I also crafted some summery medallions with the same scrapbook paper that I had made the pinwheels with.  There were three separate tables (one for appetizers, one for sides, and one for a hot dog bar), and I decorated them with an assortment of pinwheels (stuck either in vases embellished with ribbon or in styrofoam stands that I had wrapped), mason jars, and flowers.  I also made all of the printables for the party including the food/drink signs, labels for the utensil bags, and banner.


  1. The whole thing is adorable!...you come up with the cutest stuff...I have a question though...where do you buy your burlap?...I have boughten burlap before but the holes were a lot biggger.

    1. Thanks so much:) I got it at JoAnn's and Hancock (about half and half, but they both looked identical). Hope that helps
