Fourth of July Party Favor Packs + Weekend Reading

Fourth of July Surprise Packs4th of July Party Packs | IHOD

We are going camping with my family for Fourth of July Weekend (don’t worry, this preggo will be sleeping in an RV), and I thought it would be fun to surprise the kids with some little distractions for the trip there. Super easy to throw together and customize, which makes for fun Fourth of July party favor packs. I got everything from the $1 bin at Target! Total cost for everything was under $15. Some ideas to get you started….

The instax mini camera we gave them on our last family trip to use when we were out exploring. It’s pretty hard to break, and seems to give them an incentive to pay closer attention to their surroundings. I chuckle over the polaroids coming out of that camera.

As promised, here is the easy tutorial for this boho inspired fringe trim chandelier. I couldn’t quite find the finishing touch to the bedding area of the guest room refresh I was looking for. I wanted a decorative chandelier, but couldn’t quite find what I was looking for at the right price.
