As the weather warms up and backyard grills become the most favored way to prepare meals–you know Fourth of July is around the corner. We’ve put together a few of our favorite decor and festive food suggestions from Good Housekeeping’s list of party decor. We’re sure that you’ll find a DIY addition to your Fourth of July gathering that will add the perfect amount of festiveness that will leave your guests talking. Check out our favorites below:
Welcome guests with this festive flag wreath–just stick small flags into
a Styrofoam ring until full!
Add instant patriotic flair to an ordinary glass vase by wrapping
with ribbon and adding a bunch of full white hydrangeas.
Wrap that same ribbon around some inexpensive paper
lanterns to create festive decor during the day and
an ambient glow as the sun goes down!
Take advantage of the season’s fresh fruit with these fun Fourth of July flag cupcakes.
Keep the food table organized with these utensil holders made from
mason jars–just add some ribbon and they’re party ready!
