Fourth of July is literally right around the corner and I love a good themed party or get together. Even if its for 1 person or 10, in my opinion its always important to get crafty. Your guests will see that you cared enough to put all the effort in and instantly feel appreciated. Plus, it’s just plain fun!
By no means am I a party connoisseur nor do I pretend to be so my ideas are all simple and easy — just the way I like it.
Festive Napkin Rings
Get creative with red, white & blue ribbon and use it act as napkin rings for your party! Create more sophisticated ones using ribbon, 2 D rings & a little fabric glue and pull through as you would a belt — or just go simple and tie ribbon into a bow around your napkins!
Set the Table
Use mason jars or festive mugs and fill them with sand. Find small party favors to stick inside. It adds for a nice touch to a table and will engage the crowd.
Add a burst of patriotic spirit with festive umbrellas to any drinks you may be sipping on!
Dress That Pooch
Have a dog? Get him in the festive spirit! Tie a patriotic bow or opt for a bandana around his neck. It’s adorable and cute and your little gal/guy will be the star of your Fourth of July party.
I absolutely love mason jars. They can have so many functions. Sometimes I use them to drink out of while other time I’m just using it as a vase to display my favorite flowers. You pick what you want to do! You can easily dress them up to match the occasion. Find fabric/ribbons in red/white/blue (or star) theme cut them a bit and wrap it around your mason jar and glue with fabric glue. You can get pretty creative with these and they will always turn out great!
A red, white & blue drink that is absolutely perfect for 4th of July!
Drop 3 Drops of Grenadine into the bottom of the galss, pour 3 oz. of Smirnoff Ice Original in gently and top with 2 oz. of Blue Caracao. The colors will stay separate for a vibrant red, white & blue look. Serve without mixing.
Get that Mani
Mani/Pedi’s are always so fun. I’m all about painting my nails to match the seasons or holidays. It’s the one thing you can get a little crazy with that will always be trendy!! Get a fun patriotic inspired mani or pedi to liven up the holiday!
Smirnoff Ice celebrates the absurdly awesome.
