It is kinda hard to believe July 4 is this week! July 4 is not only a super special day to us as Americans, but it is the epitome of summer – why not celebrate big?! Here are some Pinterest patriotic ideas to make your bash extra festive this year:
Ball Jar Luminaries – Make all your neighbors wish they were coming to your party and wow your own guests with these easy, inexpensive Ball jar luminaries. Simply Mod Podge some red, white, and blue tissue paper to the inside of the jar. Then put a little sand in the bottom with a candle. And stick an American flag in it to top it all off. Want an even easier version? Wal-Mart sells blue Ball jars for less than $2/each. Skip the tissue paper and just show off the pretty, patriotic, and trendy blue Ball jar.
This is my FAVORITE! How adorable! Add some flair to your party by stringing red, white and blue streamers across your backyard or back patio. I love how the photo features blues, whites, and reds in different hues for more dimension. Add in some outdoor white string lights and make your patriotic party pop with pretty!
You can’t forget the cocktails! I love the look of this patriotic sangria. I bet it tastes delicious, too! The recipe includes pineapple, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, triple sec, and white wine.
Nothing goes better with a cocktail than another sweet treat! How about some patriotic Oreo cake balls? If you have never had an Oreo cake ball before, you’re missing out on a little piece of heaven right here on earth. Yes, the recipe is a lot of work, but your guests will be complimenting your dessert all night!
Did you think I would forget about you, the hostess with the mostess? Never! You gotta look the best! Better than the decorations or the cakeballs or the sangria. I’m loving this patriotic lace, polka-dot dress. It is absolutely perfect for your patriotic party!
And of course, nothing boosts your confidence higher in a leg-baring dress in just 15 minutes than an Air-Tan! Make sure you book your appointment as the salons will all be super busy for the holiday. Call ahead to schedule in Broad Ripple at 254.TANS, Fishers at 576.TANS, and Downtown at 3795.7151.
