4th of July - Start Planning with These Amazing Ideas
As a former Event Planner, Planning a good party takes time. With busy moms like myself it can be challenging to pull it off. As any Party Planner would tell you, a good, entertaining party, takes at least 6 months to plan out and make successful. However, I know the busy mom's and most of us do this about two months out, which is fine.
Over the next week, I am going to Post a different 4th of July Theme, so You can really start planning it out. Today I have chosen to go with the Good ol' Vibrant "Star Spangled Banner" theme.
Personally with this theme, the traditional Burgers and Hot Dogs is going to be a crowd pleaser.
These Containers for the Hotdogs makes it easy to be portable with your food. I found these Hotdog & Hamburger container packs and they are very inexpensive, but only a few left, so I am a tad worried they will be gone fast, but here goes: Click Here
I even found the old fashion foil wraps if you wanted to stay with the more classic theme. Click Here
One of my Favorite Cakes is this one! The traditional flag cake, it is a lot easier to make with the right pans too.
As everyone knows the cake is the centerpiece the for the table and of course I have picked out the perfect one for you right here.
Now for the Kids I always have cupcakes laying around.
And this year I have found one of the perfect blog posts to inspire your cupcake creativity. This is by the Country Living Magazine and has some super great ideas. check it out
For actual decor, I have come up with a few Bloggers that have nailed it. Like this adorable 4th of July Party by A Thoughtful Place Blog.
I love how she took French Fry holders and replaced them with Festive Napkins and filled with Smores Ingredients.
Just like this adorable Watermelon Idea from The Hostess with the Mostess Blog
Anyone that has ever attended one of my Creative Parties will know I am a huge fan of Printables and this example from Karas Party ideas is exactly what printables can do.
However as I used to sit at my kitchen table and spend hours making pinwheels, I have found they are way cheaper to purchase. Like these festive wall fans or you can even have them hand crafted like these.
I will be working on anohter theme for tomorrows article, but if you have anything you would like to see or any recipes that are missing, leave a comment below.
