    Independence Day Party!

  • We had a blast!
     
    Good food and great fun! Every year, we host a big 4th of July Party at our home. We usually have 50-75 family and friends to help us celebrate Independence Day in style. I recently added several new items to the 4th of July Party collection, and was eager to test them out for our recent party!

    Appetizer Card

  • Party favor cards and appetizer cards are a great way to dress up your party. I used several appetizer cards for my dessert table. I used a combination of folded tent cards and flat cards on colorful alligator clips (purchased at Crate & Barrel).

    Colorful American Flag Cake
  •  
  • The American Flag cake was a great success! I saw a picture of this cake on Pinterest and wanted to try it out. I baked 3 separate cakes (red, blue, and white), then cut and tiered them to create a flag design. I used cream cheese frosting in-between the layers and to cover the entire cake.

This year I baked my famous firework cupcakes. I made confetti cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. I then garnished each with Pop Rocks in red & blue for an explosive taste! These are a BIG hit with the kids.

    Featured Drinks Card
  •  
  • Using a featured drink card is a great way to highlight a few festive drinks. These drink cards are perfect when you don't have a full bar, or have just a few liquors on hand. I laminated my double sided card, and I am glad I did! A bar can get wet, so having the card laminated does help a bit.

    Party Favor Card - Front & Back Views
  •  
I wanted to do something easy for the party favors, so I chose Red Hots® & Hershey's® with Almonds. I tied them together with curling ribbon and attached a double sided party favor card. I love these personalized party favor cards! You can attach them to just about anything!
