I am so excited that it's officially summer! The hot weather, longer days, and endless BBQ's are making me a happy gal! Now that we (finally) have a yard, I have been doing a lot of hosting. This can get super expensive, especially when you factor in all the decorations and food. I decided to do 4th of July on a budget so I could avoid a red white and boohoo, if you know what I mean!
You can still have a lot of style without spending big bucks! Almost everything here came from the Dollar Tree and Target's dollar section.
This table runner is actually a scarf from the dollar section! I added a sequin table runner underneath for a little extra sparkle.
I purchased the chevron jar from Target as well ($3) and filled it with paper straws (8 for $1). The glittery star picks are from A.C. Moore.
I purchased my striped plates and star napkins from Target's dollar section, and the blue foil star napkins are from the Christmas Tree Shop. I gave each place setting a fun pen, which was only a dollar each!
These foil star plates came 8 for $1- a great deal! And how cute are those octopus beer mugs?! They're from the Christmas Tree Shop and only cost a couple of dollars.
For snacks, I got Mike and Ike candies in red, white and blue for only $1. I added nautical cupcake picks I got from the Christmas tree shop ($3 for 24) and put them in these cute shooter glasses (4 for $1)
These red, white and blue cupcakes from Target are so cute and tasty! They're perfectly patriotic.
These pail votive holders from the Dollar Tree made adorable vases. Just put a small cup of water inside so your flowers don't wilt in the heat.
I got these paper fans from the dollar tree as well, 2 for $1!
All in all, this July 4th tablescape cost about $50. Not too shabby!
Sweets & Treats: $15
