July 4 Celebrations….Easy to Add Red, White, and Blue…Love that Chalkboard Paint!

Yes…Martha would be proud…Clara Belle too.  These flowers are all from my garden.  We are lucky to have fireworks at the golf course where we live each year…right in our back yard…so we always have a few friends over.  My red, white and blue collection started even before this…actually when both of our girls participated in the French Back to Back Program.  We always collected USA items to represent our country with our French guests.   I have really enjoyed the versatility of using silver trays, etc. painted with chalkboard paint.  So many uses…for so many occasions.  Emily just took one back home for messages…I just gave one to some friends for their anniversary with a message, and have started using them as wine glass name tags, food labels…and the list goes on…fun, cheap, add some red, white, and blue ribbon and you are ready to celebrate.  Also making one for Andi’s photography business prop collection…baby photos with the birth date or age, engagement and weddings, etc.  Looking for a large tray with handles for a couple to hold…let me know if you see one.
