Summer is all about being outside. Soaking in the sun, playing in the water, and eating delicious food. Speaking of all of those! This past weekend we celebrated Summer with the family by having a little backyard bashWe headed to Walmart for a quick and easy pick up of everything we needed. Some Cheez-Its to snack on while waiting for the burgers and some Dr Pepper to throw into our Coleman cooler to keep ice cold. Being able to grab everything in one trip is so nice and convenient. 

I want to share some of my DIY decorations for the table. I love the appearance of a party table. It can bring the whole party together!

#1-Balloons-My first piece of decor is the balloons. Sure, balloons are at parties all of the time. I added a little extra by having them tied to random bottles. It adds a little something different to the table rather than tying them to a chair.

#2-Banner-If you have some string and paper laying around, this is very simple to do. I cut out triangle pieces and wrote the word Summer and then hung it on the front of the table.

#3-Platter- I made my own platter for the table. It was very easy and added a little extra for the way the food was presented. You can find a flat platter and a martini glass at the dollar store and then hot glue them together. It made a great tray for the hamburger buns.

#4-Flowers-At Walmart they have a variety of fake flowers. I bought a few of the sunflowers and took the stems off. I think the sunflowers look so cute spread around the table!

We had such a great day spending time together as a family. We will definitely be getting in some more backyard parties while we can!


Thanks for the comments! I love them! I read every single one and I try to reply to all of them :)
