Vintage Fourth of July Party

I saw these air mail envelopes and bought them to use and then wondered----"do I have to send it air mail if I use them?"  So, then I just decided to make a banner with them....the ribbon circles are new embellishments designed by Nancy from Parcel for Jolee's and are available at Michaels.
The front says CELEBRATE......the reflection from the window made it a little blurry........Anyway our fourth of July is always spent in our hometown.  The town has fireworks over the beach and you can see them from a park nearby.....we used to bring the kids to the park with some of those red, white and blue rocket ice pops......we always fly our flag......and pretty much just enjoy our hometown.  If you hit on the button on the right....this is what is happening in the town my store is in........not too sure if you consider this whole store thing work or play......I can't decide myself.  Can't wait to see what you other party goers do for Fourth of July.......love blog hopping to celebrate a holiday!!!!!

I love your banner, and that's a clever idea to use the air mail envelopes! Why didn't I think of that? It sounds like a wonderful way to celebrate the 4th, especially watching the fireworks over the water!
