“Summertime, and the livin’ is easy…” And, so much FUN with these adorable ideas from GREAT GATHERINGS and LAUREN McKINSEY! These ladies packed a basket full of treats and fantastic ideas and are sharing the perfect SUMMERTIME FUN PARTY with us!   With watermelons, gingham, burgers, and pies…this party is a crowd-pleaser!  Spread out your blanket and stay awhile- there is so much to see!

I absolutely LOVE how this party would be perfect for the Fourth of July celebrations or any summer party!

 How cute are the ice cream cones filled with fruit and topped with a watermelon umbrella?

The mix of patterns and colors in the table setting is such a great way to add to the fun of the party!  Notice all of the adorable touches from the fabrics, plates, and napkins to the watermelon lemonade served in jars with blueberries on the bottom!  The straws even had fondant stars!

The topiary is a striking centerpiece and can be used again!

The favors for the children were  placed on the table and were watermelon cookies inside of a red gable box with white polka dots~

Sliders and Mini Hot Dogs were served with pinwheels on top- and I also love the great way the chips were dressed up in chevron bags! 

The bags and the sign add so much to make the chip display shine in the cutest way!

Corn Salsa…

Homemade Blueberry Pie…

 WOW!  What a fabulous way to celebrate summer!  You can enjoy these printables and party ideas for the 4th of July right on through summer!  Be sure to visit Lauren McKinsey for the collection that you can print right from your own computer! 

Thank you, ladies, for sharing your party- FUN is an understatement!!
