Happy 4th of July!

Holidays are my favorite time of year! Cause it means i get to decorate :) This 4th of July was my first time buying decor for the house and I only spent about $23 on the whole table.




I got the tall red candle stick at Hobby Lobby during their 80% off sale for $6.00. I loved that it was red cause i can use it for Christmas and Valentines day too!
The small red candle on top of the candle holder was $1.50 and the tall red candle was $2 both from Hobby Lobby. 


The glass hurricane i had from a previous project. I bought each piece from the $1 store and hot glued them together. The red, white and blue balls are dog toys that i also got from the $1 store.


The flags were about $2 (i think) from Wal-mart.  The button flowers i made after my friend saw them in an antique store. 




The white plates are what we got for our China for our wedding. It is the Emma Collection from Pottery Barn.  The Red flower plates are plastic and they are from Walmart. When i first saw them a few weeks ago they were $2 each and as cheap as i am i decided to wait until after 4th of July to get them half off. But when i was at Walmart the Friday before the 4th they were alreay down to $1 so i bought six. The Blue napkins are also from Walmart they came 2 in a pack for $1. I tied the napkins with a piece of hemp and attached a white button on top. 


Breakdown:
Red  Candle Stick-Hobby Lobby $6
Red Candles-Hobby Lobby $3.50
Blue Napkins-Walmart $3
Red and white flower plastic plates Walmart $1 each
Flags Walmart-$2
Red, white, and blue knots-$1 Store-$1 each 
Total: $22.50
