It’s officially summer, and for some of you that means throwing a Fourth of July party. A patriotic vibe is the first thing your guests will notice, so set the bar high when it comes to decorations. To help you, I’ve rounded up my favorite easy decoration and activity ideas your guests will love.
Paper Flower Wreath
Give your home a patriotic feel even before your party guests walk in the door with a crepe paper flower wreath. Choose unconventional Fourth of July colors like coral, cobalt blue and ivory, or go with the classic red, white and blue hues.
Ombre Party Linens
Dyeing basic white table linens in an ombre pattern is a modern way to show your patriotism. Despite how intricate this looks, these are easy to make.
Star-Shaped Beeswax Candles
Don’t forget to dress up your food! I once tried to make the infamous American flag layer cake on Pinterest, and I completely failed. It was real bad, folks. If you’re like me, you may want to try something a little easier like star-shaped beeswax candles. Marianne made these for her daughter, Lulu’s, birthday, but you can switch the cookie cutters for star-shaped ones for a true Americana look.
Flameless Party Crackers
If you have little kiddos at your party, fire crackers can be pretty dangerous. They can still join in on the fun though with our easy-to-make flameless party crackers.
Backyard Ring Toss Game
This ring toss game is something both kids and adults will enjoy together year-round, and you probably already have most of the materials in your home.
