Hosting a Party This Summer - Here’s a Tip! Pinterest inspires us to create beautiful experiences in our everyday lives. But they also create some high expectations and the budgets to match. When planning your party, spending time with friends and loved ones makes the most lasting memories. Use items you already have at home: put tea lights in juice glasses or string Christmas lights outside to create a festive feel. Check your local dollar store for a kitschy, thematic ambience.
