I painted a mason jar red for a pretty flower vase. I got the white faux flowers on clearance at the craft store because they are labeled for spring. meh. White flowers are perfect any time of the year. ha!

    I love it all! I love anything patriotic and yours is really different and fun!!! I’ll have to check out the Vaseline technique! The plate with the mini bunting is my favorite. As soon as I get over this graduation party on Saturday, I’ll be able to pull out all of my summer/patriotic decor!

    This mini bunting is so cute, I did a very similar one for the Jubilee (I am in the UK) a couple of weeks ago! I used mine to decorate cupcakes…!
