4th of July Party Ideas

With Independence Day quickly approaching, I'm in search for some great party decor to celebrate one of my favorite holidays. I'm going to be hosting a small get together [family only] in my backyard this 4th of July! I recently purchased some outdoor dining furniture at Ikea and I plan to take full advantage of this upcoming holiday to break it in [although I need to put the table together first... Might need to get on that!].

4th of July has always been one of my favorite holidays -- I love fireworks, my country, and summer, so the combination add up to a wonderful holiday. I also love 4th of July parties; the decor is always fun and easy. Throw some American flags and flowers together with lots of red, white, and blue, and boom, it's time to party!

Here are some pictures that are serving as inspiration for our upcoming family cookout:




I love the idea of using bandanas as place mats and napkins; so easy!





With three young nieces in attendance, I want to make sure the cookout is kid-friendly and fun for them. Here are a few things I'm thinking for the kids' table/activities:

Do you have any fun plans to celebrate the 4th? I'll be sure to snap tons of pictures of our family get together in hopes that I'll get a few good ones to share. That seems to be my photography plan these days -- take way more than I'd ever need in hopes that I'll get a few good ones...

As for the project I mentioned last week, it is still in the works. I'll share it as soon as I'm done. Actually, I'm off to work on it right now. Wish me luck!
