Memorial weekend BBQ design board

You gotta love the red, white and blue color combo!  It makes me think of charming, summer memories filled with good friends, family and amazing food!  What better way to celebrate the occasion than throwing a backyard bash?  Here’s what’s inspiring me…

Sincerely, Kymberly

Williams Sonoma stars and stripes table setting

I”m loving the stars and stripes place mats, runner and napkins.  Since this is such a busy pattern, I’d use solid white plates and other solid colored table accessories (flowers, candles, etc).

Stars and Stripes paper globes

I wouldn’t necessarily use these exact paper globes if I was using the Williams Sonoma stars and stripe table setting, but I do like the idea of hanging decor from above the outdoor table setting.  Even solid white paper globes would do the trick!

To add originality to the setting,try scoring a red vintage bike (either child size or adult) and have it propped up in the immediate area.

Red Bicyclette Wine

If you get the red bike, why not serve Red Bicyclette for the adults!

For the kids, serve Coca-Cola from vintage glass bottles (or Jones Soda).  Then, save the bottle for future events (I’m thinking flower vases for 4th of July?)

Finally, to complete the occasion, the perfect J.Crew outfit!

J.Crew; the perfect romper, blazer and sweater
