4th of July Party

The 4th of July is a super fun holiday – summer, grilling, fireworks. There are no gifts to buy or cards to send. It’s an easy celebration. But since I love all holidays more than a normal person should, I had to make things a little more complicated for Independence Day and throw together a 4th of July party with decorations. All because I found cute plates at HomeGoods that I HAD to use. For real.

So I came up with some red, white and blue party ideas and styled a simple celebration. Take a look!

These USA letter balloons from Target are my favorite. I love balloons and these are the perfect backdrop for a 4th of July photo shoot or party.

I set up our 4th of July party at my parents’ shore house in the backyard. The sun was high in the sky, which meant taking photos of the decorations was a challenge and plenty of deodorant and sunscreen were needed.

Hey look – there are those plates that captured my heart! I think it was the silver scallop edge that really sold me.

The paper cups and napkins are from Five Below. I put a Twizzlers red, white and blue pull ‘n’ peel candy in each cup for guests to fill up with the other holiday candy treats.

These cute straws are actually a find from years ago at Target.

This banner and garland set was the perfect patriotic wall decor for the party area (another find from Meri Meri on Amazon). I tossed some star balloon lanterns on the ground – so easy to do, but makes a party so festive.

A fast and simple idea for your 4th of July celebration – red, white and blue fruit kabobs! Just alternate marshmallows, strawberries and blueberries on skewers.
