I love my house, but I absolutely adore my kitchen (I should clean and shoot it for you to see one day), it’s layout is perfect for a regular meal, or a festive party.
Above my island counter space I have two pendant lights, and I’ve just discovered that it’s a great place to hang things from, as it doesn’t require any holes in the ceiling. The island is a great place to have the food spread at parties, as people can circulate easily without having to stand in line.
In preparation for our 4th of July bbq, I got busy hanging some decorations yesterday, and I’m pleased with the results.
The lanterns were purchased from the Dollar Tree, (one long + one circular in a pack for only $1). The stickers were also from there; I simply suck them on some thin coordinating ribbon. The paper dollies are part of the Martha Stewart party line I mentioned HERE.
It’s amazing what you can throw together for around $6. What are your cheap tricks for a big statement?
