4th of July Party Tips

Let’s be honest, July 4th is a MAJOR holiday here in the good ole US of A and I love this day!!  A time to get together with friends and family, fire up the BBQ grill, and make new memories!  I have gone a little overboard this year with the Red, White and Blue but all I can say is…America the Beautiful!  I wanted to share with you some easy, inexpensive ways to decorate and a few ideas for your next party!!  Check out these 4th of July Party Tips.

I love a good deal, so you may be surprised at what you can find at places like Dollar General, Target $ section or even Michael’s, just put your thinking caps on get creative!  And with Pinterest these days, all of you can be crafty!  This year, I am even going to create a seating area just for the kiddos, including big kids…to just hang out, watch the fireworks, or use as a photo op! Bring on the hay bales folks and gather ’round the campfire!  Dress up your food table with a patriotic table cloth, use all things red, white, and blue!  Straws, plates, napkins, sunglasses, glow-sticks, USA prints, banners, etc.  If you are a planner like myself, I buy things in advance because if you wait until the last minute, it’s hard to find exactly what you are looking for!  Groopdealz is a great site to get a deal for party supplies, but don’t wait too long, these items sell out quickly because of their deeply discounted price!

Hello! I was born and raised in a small Kansas town but have always loved the city and all that it has to offer! I love to travel, I love fashion, and I love to eat…and write about it! My small town life growing up has definitely shaped who I am today and as I grow older, I am starting to appreciate that more and more. When I am not writing or at my day job, I am most likely baking, running, spending time at the local farmers market, or hitting up a good happy hour! I am currently in Nursing school and will graduate in 2017, I love helping people!! I am obsessed with taking pictures that aren’t conventional and sharing them with the world. My family and friends mean the world to me and I cherish each second I spend with them. I currently have my own blog titled “Dirt Roads ~ High Heels” http://thedirtroadshighheels@blogspot.com
