6. Colorful Cans...

Martha Stewartalways knows how to entertain and throw a well decorated party. Don't just visit her wedding site for ideas, check out her every day site for great crafts, home & garden, and holiday decor ideas like these DIY patriotic container centerpieces. You can fill these with straws or candy for the dessert buffet or bring some red, white, and blue cheer to your tables as you fill them with daisies of the same color!

Maybe you're hoping to see some fireworks on your wedding day besides the ones going on between you and your new husband! But the real thing can be a little costly and dangerous if you don't know what you're doing. So play it safe and cool with these adorable firework paper pom poms.
