Budget Friendly Summer Entertaining

By May 9, 2014Featured Posts

I’m thrilled to be partnering with Dollar Tree to share their new Summer Fun collection with you and I’ve put together a Budget Friendly Summer Table with cute decorated Flip-Flops. Entertaining shouldn’t cost a fortune! Some of my favorite memories are with family and friends when I hosted a very simple get together.

The colorful tablecloth and plates can be used all Summer for any occasion. The plates come in a package of 4, they are not only perfect for serving guests but are great for sending food home with them too. If you are anything like me, when I entertain I always make way too much food. Over the weekend, I baked a cake and used one of the plates to take some of it to friends, it was much sturdier than a paper plate, and for .25 cents it really doesn’t matter if the plate isn’t returned to you. How often do you go to a potluck and find later that your dish is missing? That’s happened to me more than once.

For the napkins, I chose a kitchen towel to match the color scheme. Plastic cups and silverware are perfect for entertaining too.

Down the center of the table, I added these cute little battery operated LED Lanterns.

The  Storage Tub is perfect to hold fun decorated Flip-Flops to give as take-home gifts or even a spot to hold them while swimming. You could also fill it with ice and serve drinks.

The Summer Fun event is in Dollar Tree stores and at DollarTree.com with a Flip-Flop Frenzy! Submit a photo for the Flip-Flop Craft Contest of your original Flip-Flop craft at DollarTree.com and be entered to win a $500 Dollar Tree gift card.

For these Flip-Flops, I used water balloons on the orange sandals and just tied them around. The green sandals, have pony beads that I strung onto ribbon and then tied them on.

I think it would be fun to grab a bunch of Flip-Flops, and some items to decorate them with and have fun during the party, the ideas are endless.
