I’m looking forward to our annual 4th of July family party, and have been bookmarking some ideas that I’m thinking about trying. Click on each photo to go to each tutorial.
These pinwheels look like fun to make, and they’d delight the little grandsons! We might use heavy drinking straws instead of skewers though.
Aren’t these tin can windsocks just adorable? I think they’d be fun in the tree over the swimming pool all summer long. For the streamers, I’d probably cut strips off some cheapo plastic tablecloths you can get from a party store. That way they will be able to withstand rain.
This salad looks so pretty and yummy. Also, I’ve never bought jimaca before in my life, so it’s about time I do!
I’ve used this idea in previous years but in individual glasses, which has always felt a little too fussy with the numbers of people I serve. I love the idea of setting it up in a big dispenser and letting people serve themselves. It might mix up a bit while being dispensed, but it would still taste as good.
Here’s one last decor idea. Even if you decided not to do the lettering, the stars suspended on ribbon are a lot of fun. This idea would be fun birthday decor too.
Finally, if you’re looking for games for a large crew, be sure to check out the post I wrote awhile back detailing some of the games we’ve played over the years with varying ages of people.
