DIY: Party Polka Dots

This one time, I bought a few bridal magazines and was quickly overwhelmed and vowed to stay away from them for a while.  You know how I feel about planning weddings....BUT, there are several ideas in these wild magazines to help throw a smashing party.  For example, these polka dots.  All it takes is a couple of corks and a dash of your favorite colors of ink.  Wouldn't this be a fun way to decorate for a summer soirée?


Speaking of weddings...I'm heading out to attend 2 {back to back} in California.  My fiance is in both. Craziness.  But the good kind of crazy.  I'm excited to see friends and get out of this humidity! I hope everyone has a fabulous week and a happy 4th of July!  Anyone have big plans for the 4th? 

See you back late next week!
