Nifty Thrifty Tuesday No.70

Hello everyone...hoping all of y'all are having a good time with family and friends today cooking out and maybe even taking in some beautiful fireworks. Here at Coastal Charm we are working like crazy on this upcoming wedding today...the girls are out buying candy for the favors...we are having a "candy table" display with cute little candy bags that the bride has put together (more on that later). Mr.CC is out working in the yard...doing some much needed yard work before our out of town company arrives and I've been making these moss covered "N" letters to go on the doors at the country club. I think this just might be the first July 4th that we have not celebrated with a cookout and fireworks...oh well...we will survive...maybe after the wedding we should have one HUGE cookout to celebrate that we pulled this BIG day off...whatcha think? Thanks to all of you who voted last week on the links at the party...I was happy to see that so many of you had done this and now here is the results. If you are listed here...please be sure to grab my little starfish "I was featured at Coastal Charm" button for your blog. Looking forward to seeing all you NIFTY THRIFTY items and ideas...so let's get this party rolling!!!!
                                              Happy that you came by and
                                             please be sure to invite all your
                                                    friends to the party,

                                            I'm very happy with the results and
                                                    for only $9.50 each...I
                                                      would say that these
                                                             are very 
                                                      NIFTY THRIFTY!!
                                                It's still up in air if I'm going to
                                                    hang them by ribbon or
                                                       use fishing line...the
                                                           doors are glass.
                                           The letters are those gold ones you
                                            have all seen at Hobby Lobby...at
                                                    50% off...I never pay full
                                                        price at this store!
                                          Wrap the front...then glue down this piece
                                              on the back for a perfect look...must
                                                  look good front and back when
                                                      displaying on glass doors!
