Patriotic Party Ideas - budget friendly!

It's been a while since I have done a party post!  Today I wanted to share some of my previous Patriotic Party ideas with you all.  This Memorial Day weekend coming up, we will host our last party in this house 8(    We have always loved entertaining and having friends and family over for fellowship!

I am finally sharing a picture of our new home!  We are not moved in yet but weeks away!  Packing has been a priority along with purging - gosh how much stuff one family can accumulate in 9 and one half  years. WOWZA!  This home and property has 95% of what was on our wish list. We have worked so hard and been so faithful in our finances and making smart decisions over the last 9 plus years it's finally paying off!
