Who does not love to throw a summer bash? With a little attention to details, you can make your guests feel special without spending a fortune. I love to use what I have in a new way and I also love to scour my dollar stores for ideas to make summer outdoor parties rock. They always have cute napkins, glassware, decorator items and even paper lanterns.

So here are three quick tips to help you rock your next get-together:

  1. Just say no to paper plates and plastic spoons. You can opt for an elegant dinner for two with your best dishes and silverware or a festive party with friends using cute melamine plates and stainless.
  2. Add lights for atmosphere. From white twinkle lights to fun summer flamingos, lighting can set the tone of your soiree. I love a string of paper lanterns across the backyard too!!!
  3. Use scarves from your stash. Tied onto the fence or hanging from tree limbs, these add color and panache to the festivities. I love to watch the movement in the breeze.

All it takes is a little imagination and creativity to use what you have in a new and beautiful way. No matter what you choose, do it with flair!
