LIFE, LIBERTY & PURSUIT OF...A GOOD PARTY

Want to throw a sizzling-hot 4th of July party this year but worried about the hassle? Don’t sweat it—organizing a party doesn’t have to be a lot of hard work. These party planning tips can help you create a Savvy Selebration at home. Here’s how:


Quick invite
As much as we love printed invites - go "eco" by sending an Evite to friends and family to your 4th of July BBQ.


Simple decor
  • Consider crafting your own red or blue garland and draping them from arbors and awnings. Check out this Martha Stewart tutorial, here.
  • If you are feeling adventurous, try this 4th of July Felt Star Wreath via Tip Junkie
  • For tabletops, fill clear vases with tap water colored with red and blue food coloring, then adding white carnations. Over time, the carnations will absorb the colored water and turn red or blue.
  • Another way to add a patriotic vibe is by picking up a bundle of small American flags from an arts and crafts store and decorating your yard or walkway by sticking the wooden dowels or rods into the ground or in planters.
  • If you are looking for a little unexpected patriotic charm, check out our Seaside Stars & Stripes Collection.
