Sparks for the 4th

The 4th of July is coming and we all know that means there will be a lot of party and BBQ’s. So, for all you people planning an event this Independence Day here are some cool DIYs you can add to your decor to add a unique flare.

Sweets and Drinks: 

  1. Start by filling the glass about 1/4-1/3 of the way up with drink the highest sugar content per serving (red in this case)
  2. Then, fill the cup FULL with ice.
  3. Pour the drink with the next highest sugar content (white in this case) very slowly over the ice. You’ll use the ice as a sort of buffer – pouring directly on to the ice with a very slow pour (small amount). If you just pour a whole bunch in quickly, the colors will combine.
  4. Repeat with the last layer (blue in this case)
  5. Snip the ends off of a Twizzlers candy and place in the drink for a straw. For some added fun, you could take some of the red, white, and blue Twizzlers PULL ‘N’ PEEL candy to add a little edible bow or tie to your straw.

*for you adults you can add some of your favors rum for an extra kick 

This is such a cute way to decorate your cupcakes and always reduce the amount of hands touching food and messes being formed 


Patriotic Star Bouquet

What You Will Need:

  1. Planting pot(s)
  2. Red, white, and blue paint
  3. Either red, white, or blue ribbon
  4. Styrofoam stars or squares you can cut into stars
  5. Sticks

These can work as a nice centerpiece on the porch or patio, or they could work perfectly scattered around the venue. 

I hope these DIYs helped spark some creativity for your up coming Forth of July event. Tag us on Facebook and Instagram with pictures from your 4th of July day event.
