With a few easy 4th of July party ideas, this Firecracker Bash was a totally custom, you-niqe way to celebration Independence Day. The first thing the guests noticed was the red, white and blue color combination. A step away from traditional, the light turquoise blue chevron party supplies was unexpected and loved by everyone.
I began planning with inspiration from the downloadable tags - Get yours here. I used the square tags as utensil wraps for the desserts and dressed up the placesettings by wrapping the plates and napkins with a ribbon, then sliding a printable tag into the center - see it close-up here. The bottle tag make our sparkling grape juice festive and hid the words on the label - win-win!
Personalized decorating kits are our all-time favorite party supply since they come with so many pieces - you can get really creative and use them for all of you DIY party ideas. I turned the Red Chevron large centerpiece into a cube and placed it at the center of the table. Next, I used the scalloped party circles from the red decorating kit with the round party circles from the Blue Chevron decorating kit to dress up our milk jar drink bottles. With a paper punch and some twine, the tags were doubled up and made a fun decoration - see it close-up here.
I also used the round party circle to sew a fun cake topper. By placing them back-to-back and sewing down the center and folding them in the center, then attaching to two striped straws, the angel food cake was dressed to impress! See a close-up here.
The kids absolutely ADORED the party hats.That was probably the favorite part of the event ... and the rock candy ... and the tassels! Let's face it, the kids had a blast. They had cake, candy, things hanging from trees that they could jump at. The tassels made a fun backdrop for the party and were super easy to make. You can find a tutorial here.
I completed the look with custom party decorations, including cupcake picks in the apple pie cups, cupcake wraps, mini favor boxes, hanging decorations and DIY party tags on top of red Sixlet candy favors. This Fourth of July celebration was as much fun to attend as it was to host.
