Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and think of what could go right.
This weekend couldn’t get any better! I guess it would be nice if the 4th of July holiday were accompanied with a three-day weekend, but, at the same time, it’s kind of nice having it break up the work week. To get the ball rolling for the festivities, I wanted to share my favorite patriotic ideas I found on Pinterest. Here is this week’s edition of Sally’s Pins.
Patriotic Wreath: I love the clean, simple lines in this wreath. It would be perfect to leave up all summer long.
Flag Party Streamers: The combination of solids and stripes is so adorable. These streamers would be perfect for a patriotic party, but the could also accommodate any theme.
Foam Star Straw: What a simple way to jazz up the party drinks, and who doesn’t love drinking out of a straw???
Sparkler Cards: Such an amazing idea to have sparklers set out for guests to enjoy. The cards really spruce up the simple sparklers.
Patriotic Bean Bag Toss: When having a party, it’s always nice to have some games going to spark conversations. I love the star shaped board in this idea.
4th of July Drinks: Could it get any easier than this? What a great way to dress up a table and keep your guest hydrated.
Fare for the Fourth: This website has loads of great ideas for the holiday. I especially love the tray of fruit to offer some lighter options.
Land That I Love Print: Even though this is the perfect picture for summer decorating, I like it so much, I would leave it out year round.
Stars and Stripes Pie: I have never successfully made a pie, but this creation would be my dream. The crust decoration on top is so perfect!
4th of July Jello Shots: It is not a summer party without jello shots, so these bright, patriotic ones would fit right in.
Firecracker Popcorn Bags: I love the decorative fringe on these bags, and they would be so easy for guest to grab and munch on.
4th of July Word Art: I need to start a collection of festive word art to switch out throughout the year, and I think I will start with this free printable.
Watermelon Pops: A 4th of July party is quickly taken over by red, white, and blue, so throwing in these watermelon pops would add some variation to the table. Plus they look delicious!
Patriotic Desserts: I don’t think I could narrow it down to just one of these desserts. I want them all!
What is your favorite part about the 4th of July holiday?
