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!
