Summertime is in full force and July 4th is finally upon us! For many of us, that means backyard bbq’s, beach days, baseball games or even an epic road trip up the coast. However you are spending your Independence Day, remember it’s about creating memories with your loved ones! Katrina and Karena from ToneIt Up and I partnered to create a festive holiday guide for your holiday backyard (or beach) bash! You can click here to see the full ToneIt Up blog post with their decor inspo! Here are a few July 4th Decor and Photo Tips from Me & ToneIt Up. to capturing the memories this summer.
Before your guests arrive and you’ve left enough time, make sure to grab a few photos of your hard work! If you’re using a dSLR or your iPhone, go in close and snap a few detail shots. For a few extra tips while using your camera head over to the shop to see more here! July 4th is a great time to test those cute Pinterest projects you’ve been repinning all spring, snap a photo to share your hard work! Another great shot to get is an aerial view of the table, this can show the fun shapes you’ve created.
Now that the party planning is finished, sit back, grab one of those July 4th themed cocktails you’re serving and start making amazing memories with your loved ones! I think this goes without saying but grab that camera and start snapping away, you’ll want to remember these times years down the road. Now go grab your grandma and take that selfie and try out these July 4th Decor and Photo Tips from Me & ToneIt Up!
