Free 4th of July printables from my favorite sites!

While searching the web to find inspiration for a 4th of July table I'm putting together, I came across these adorable {and free!} printables and just had to share them with you. Their corresponding websites are listed below.

*Every one of these beautiful photos are from their respective websites are not the property of Simply Sweet Events

 These are so much fun to use on the table. Print them on label paper and put them on your glass pitcher full of sweet iced tea or lemonade. 

Top right: These simply darling flags are from The Sweetest Occasion blog
 If you cut the flag designs in half, they can be used as decoration for your 4th of July invitations. 

Bottom left: Napkin ring designs are from  Martha Stewart
 You could also use these napkin ring designs on small glass candles. 

I will be sure to put up photos from my own tablescape including my ideas for each of these printables. I hope you found a little inspiration for your own Independence day celebration!

Dr. Seuss Inspired Birthday Party

We recently put together a 3rd birthday party for my son.  When I asked him what theme he wanted for his party, he said "Cat in the Hat" without skipping a beat.  Of course, my eyes lit up and a rush of ideas came flooding to mind.  I would image any Dr. Seuss themed event would make an event planner giddy with delight. The famous Dr. Seuss was ingenious in his creativity and originality and each page of his books lends infinite inspiration.  The ideas were limitless and we had a lot of fun putting this event together.  Below are a few details from the event.

We made flower poms that were placed around the wooden pavilion and added a lot of color.
