Who’s ready for a long holiday weekend?
If you’re hosting this weekend, and haven’t had time to prep the perfect 4th of July tablescape, you are not alone! What we love most about 4th of July is the spontaneity of it – it’s just a casual, “Hey, wanna come over?” holiday – no set plans, not too much prep, yet it always turns out to be a great weekend.

With just 2 days until one of the biggest BBQs of the year, here are a few last minute 4th of July hostess tips for a flawless (but still casual) 4th of July bash!
