We’ve got our patriotic red white and blue ‘fire’Cracker Jacks ready as a nostalgic summertime treat. We added red white and blue striped ribbon just to make them extra special.
With a name tag or note attached to the ribbon they would make an awesome place card or party favor as well.
We’ve also got our Pop Rocks, because they are like having a fireworks show in your mouth!
The sideboard is all gussied up with red white and blue bunting and other patriotic themed items.
We found these sparkly balloon weights from Dollar Tree. They certainly are not a statement of understated elegance, and they may be a bit gaudy, but they feel like a fireworks launch!
If you can’t add a little over-the-top sparkly glitz and glam for the 4th of July, when can you?
We’ll be adding some of our favorite patriotic recipes and entertaining ideas soon — until then, here are some pictures from last year’s 4th of July celebration, and a few more from this year.
