Red, White, and Blue Whoohoo

Together, along with our wonderful friends/neighbors Erik and Christy, we hosted our very first Fourth of July bash. We plan on making this a tradition!

There were several handmade tokens though out the festivities...



Christy whipped up these charming signs to welcome guests in to our homes as they arrived.

In an effort to keep our guests mingling, we placed the food in the Grubbs house and dessert and drinks in ours.



I found this lovely idea in my Country Living Magazine.



Star shaped watermelon, skewered and frozen.






Themed pompoms.








I think a few people (ahem you know who you are) had one too many of these...

Custom cornhole set made by the ubertalented Christy, who happens to double as an art teacher.





Babies were everywhere, all celebrating their first Fourth!



All of our beautiful friends and family made the day perfect.

















The ultimate party favors.



From the bottom of our hearts, thanks again for celebrating with us.
