Give your July 4th party a festive look with stars-and-stripes themed decorations
Having friends and family over for a Fourth of July cookout? Impress them with fun adornments like lanterns, drink markers and an easy-to-throw-together centerpiece. Keep the kids occupied working on these projects so you can focus on the main event―the food!
Short on time and budget? Opt for bouquets of flags, instead of flowers, as a centerpiece. Anchor the flags in red, white and blue gum balls to add a bit of holiday-themed color to the spread.
Decorate plastic cups with red, white and blue rubber bands, and then have the children write each person's name on the white rubber bands. All your guests will be able to keep track of their drinks. Wrap utensils in a colorful napkin and place a set in each cup.
