After having a full week of recuperating from the kids parties I have officially started the planning for our 4th of July bash (technically 2nd of July bash). Initially I had planned to reuse a lot of the decorations from the kids party, but I just can't shake the urge to have patriotic colors. We are planning to do a similar soda bar set up and instead of a candy buffet a dessert buffet. I think I am planning to use red, white and aqua or sky blue, just to mix it up a little. I also would like to use bandannas as most of the fabric. So I thought I would put together a little inspiration post for myself and maybe it will help you guys prepare for your parties also.
Martha Strawberry and cream dessert
Taste of Home Cupcakes
Country Living I would just use blue and red
Lovely Bunting from SpringChick on Etsy
So that's all for now. Surprisingly I didn't find a lot of awesome ideas for this. Most stuff is a little too red, white and blue for my tastes. Martha really has the most and best ideas for a 4th party that is still pretty. I have a lot of my own ideas floating around in my head too, so I think I can successfully pull off a lovely red, white and blue party.
