American flags, apple pie, and Lady Liberty encompass so many homes on Fourth of July. It's a time to celebrate America's Independence, and in true GDGC fashion, we're celebrating in style. Jackie Brown of Interiors by Jackie Brown stopped by with some ideas to make the most festive Fourth of July around!What are some of the games we can play at our outdoor 4th of July Party?
Using either scrapbooking paper or premade mini flags, you can have a relay race using buckets filled with sand at two separate ends. The team who gets all the flags back in the home plate bucket wins! What about if it’s an indoor party?
A classic game of guess the jelly beans is always a nice, low-key game. There are also lots of classic card games too!How can we make this 4th of July party a little more unique?
I love the idea of labeling your cups with pictures and names of the presidents. If you leave off the names and just do photos, this can be another party game too! Guess which president I am! Any tablescape ideas?
I love having a solid base table cloth that you can reuse and then put a table runner over it for a specific season. Here is a quick way to cut stars out of paper with just one cut! Follow the folds I will show you then snip! Take these stars and glue them together to make a very inexpensive table runner!Any unique sweet treats?
Of course! I know how Lacey loves cupcakes so I found this cleaver cupcake that we make to resemble the Statue of Liberty’s torch! First use cake frosting mist or watered down food coloring to color the ice cream cones a blue/green color. Then mix any cake mix you like – most people prefer confetti but I used red velvet. As the cupcakes are baking, you can use red food coloring to color these cut vanilla waffle cookies to look like the flames and then stick them into the cupcakes after you ice them. Aren’t they adorable!?
