Summer Party Ideas & Inspiring Table Setting Ideas| Thursday Favorite Things

 I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend celebrating Independence Day. We enjoyed a quiet BBQ with friends, kids, and some canine friends.

 Bloggers from last week brought fabulous summer party ideas and table setting inspiration. One of our featured bloggers shared a fabulous summer party idea that was inspired by fashion and design trends from the Roaring 20’s.

Even though July 4th is over, don’t be quick to pack away all the red, white, and blue just yet! Labor Day is just around the corner on September 5th. A couple of our featured bloggers shared beautiful patriotic table setting inspiration that will work perfectly for some Labor Day fun.

There are quite a few patriotic holidays and days of remembrance.

There is Martin Luther Kings birthday in January,

President Washingtons Birthday in February,

Flag Day in June,

Memorial Day in May,

Labor Day in September,

Constitution Day also in September,

Veterans Day in November,

and Bill of Rights day early in December.

In all my years I do not recall going to a Constitution or Bill of Rights shindig. Do you? I’m imagining all the  fun ways to host a themed party.

 Patriotic Champagne Brunch Table Setting

Roaring 20’s Summer Party  & Table Top Decor Ideas

A pretty classic 1920's garden drink station idea sets the stage for this themed 1920's summer party idea. Guest regaled the fashions of the time and the host decorated in roaring 20's fashion. Lincluden Cottage Life featured on Thursday Favorite Things

Rebeca from Lincluden Cottage Life hosted a fabulous 1920’s themed garden party. 

Everything from her DIY banner using images from an old magazine to the detailed drink recipes framed on each table, and the darling costumes worn by Rebeca’s guests, is inspiring. I love a good themed party. How about you?

Hi Olivia! Thanks so much for featuring my 4th of July champagne brunch!! I agree that red, white and blue works for so many holidays and I so love the other features. Btw, while I wouldn’t exactly call it a Constitution shindig, I did do a table setting featuring the Constitution a year or so back… 🙂 You can see that one here: Thanks again!!
