PARTY DETAILS, as told by Lia

The theme for this party is a vintage Fourth of July. The food includes an array of American favorites like hot dogs and caramel corn. Lisa and I wanted to have the decorations be DIY projects that anyone can make. We will be posting full photo tutorials for 6 of these projects on my blog and would love to share these with you as well.
