I’m obsessed with Red, White, and Blue Party Ideas! Seriously, it’s like a treasure trove of patriotic party inspo!
First off, let’s talk about the colors. Red, white, and blue are the ultimate combo for any party celebrating the good ol’ USA.
They scream patriotism and make everyone feel all star-spangled awesome.
Plus, these colors look so darn good together. They create this vibrant and energetic vibe that gets everyone in the party mood.
I have some killer decoration ideas that will blow your mind. Think red, white, and blue balloons, streamers, and banners hanging everywhere.
It’s like you’ve stepped into a Fourth of July wonderland!

Personal Note from Janine
Summer has finally made its way to the San Francisco Bay Area!
Up until this week, we’ve been bundled up in long pants and sweaters. But now, it’s all about shorts, sundresses, and flip-flops for me. I’m loving the change!
Instead of dealing with the crazy traffic and crowds up at Lake Tahoe, we decided to cancel our reservations and just hang out at home this weekend. It’s the perfect opportunity to unwind and enjoy our newly transformed backyard.
We’re planning to whip up a special dinner and savor the peacefulness of our own space.
I really hope you find some time to relax and fully embrace the summer vibes this long holiday weekend!
Happy Fourth to you all!

This Week’s Tip – Candle Care
Hey, as the Fourth of July celebrations are coming up, let’s talk about candle safety and why it’s important to trim those wicks. When you’re hosting friends and family this weekend, candles can really enhance the festive vibes, but we have to make sure we’re using them safely, you know?
- Trimming the wick reduces smoke and improves the air quality while enjoying your candles.
- Keeping the wick trimmed promotes even burning and prevents wasted wax caused by tunneling.
- Shortening the wick decreases the risk of candle fires by creating a smaller and more controlled flame.
