Wednesday Edition-Count Down To The 4th

Welcome to Count Down To 4th 
Today I planned some decorating ideas but before we get started 
I wanted to share this . . . 
Having company over this summer? Make sure your backyard is party-ready! To transform your outdoor space into an awesome bash, follow these steps. Create a well stocked bar of soft drinks, champagne, water, and perhaps a signature specialty cocktail. If you’ve got a pool, get a fun pool float such as a swan or flamingo. Use reusable plastic drinkware and dinnerware in fun patterns. Set up a water-resistant speaker and turn up the music. Visit eBay for 8 ways to make your outdoor bash great.:  There are some cool tips here

Next on with some great decorating ideas . . .
