The summer heat is ramping up in the United States and it’s time for America’s biggest BBQ weekend. I love the Fourth of July mostly for the fireworks, but I also love the good food and fun times spent with friends and family.
Throwing a big party can be a bit overwhelming when you are the hostess. Instead of elaborate 4th of July party decorations, I’ve created a few simple DIY party decorations you can easily make multiples of. The rosettes and paper firework picks make great decorations for a table or porch. The simple silverware holders can hold each guest’s utensils or be filled with a candy bar. When it’s time for the fireworks show to start, give each guest a paper cone filled with popcorn and a unique patriotic box of sparklers or candy.
The best part of the night will be the Sparkler fortunes (and misfortunes). Attach these tags to your sparklers and let each guest pick one. They can read the message and then light the sparkler to make the fortune come true. Of course you will want to remove the paper tag before lighting the sparkler. The file includes eight fortunes and eight misfortunes. Use the Pazzles Pen Tool to create these, or cut them out blank to come up with your own sentiments. I think my guests will really enjoy these and I hope your guests will too!
