Must-Have Fourth of July Party Supplies

It’s not too early to begin gathering supplies for your Fourth of July shindig. {shin-dig, noun: a usually large or lavish party} Today I have a list of both food and decorations. You know I had to also throw in an art project that you AND the kiddos will be proud of. Let’s waste no more time…it’s almost time to party!!!

Fourth of July tablescape for an Outdoor Party
/1/ Create a Lovely Patriotic Tablescape – Everything about this table is simply beautiful. From the bold stars on the tablecloth {that can be easily re-created with fabric purchased from your local fabric retailer} to the Chinese lanterns hanging from the ceiling {I’ve seen these at my local craft store} this tablescape is going to WOW your guests.

Patriotic salsa for Independence Day party food
/2/ Blueberry, Strawberry and Jicama Salsa – Here’s a sweet alternative to your traditional tomato salsa. Don’t let the jicama scare you. Looks to me that it’s going to have a mild, water chestnut-like flavor and texture.

Fourth of July flowers with red, white, and blue arrangements
/3/ Patriotic Floral Arrangements – This, of course, would be one of the final purchases for your get-together but, they’ll make a beautiful impact on your table. Not pictured but, equally as lovely would be a bouquet of sunflowers.

Patriotic Print Word Art Printable
/4/ Brave Printable – Head on over to A Little Crafting for the full details on how to print this beauty.

Patriotic straw flags for Fourth of July party decor
/5/ Festive Paper Straws – Paper straws are super popular right now! Add a simple homemade flag for an added touch of whimsy.

Fourth of July Drinks from a country mason jar
/6/ Drink from a Mason Jar – Surely this isn’t just a southern tradition. Am I the only one who would totally drag out all of my mason jars for my guests? Give it a try. Fancy them up with a ribbon and those above mentioned paper straws. {You’re welcome.}

Flag handprint and footprint art for Fourth of July
/7/ Flag Hand and Foot Print Art – Hang it up over the mantle or lean it against the wall as a backdrop to your buffet table, this hand and foot print art will be a treasure for years to come.
